NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 Launch

When the GeForce GTX 480 and 470 launched earlier this year opinion was split on just how good they were in comparison to the existing Radeon 5000 series. For those who look specifically at framerates the cards compared well with the equivalent ATI models, though the GeForces were not as successful on the value front. In terms of features the NVIDIA based products had PhysX, 3D Vision and a number of GPU computing applications which made them more desirable than the Radeon range but they lost out on media features and didnt fare well on heat and power consumption.

There were similar comments made when the lower specification GTX 465 was launched recently as the new model used the same core, just reduced the specification to make use of chips which were unable to meet 470/480 spec.

Todays launch however is a little bit different… despite a name which is close to the existing GTX 465 the GTX 460 is based on a new class of Fermi/GF100 GPU. Today we find out how it compares to the existing GTX 400 range, the GTX 200 series and its direct competition, the Radeon 5830. Will the changes and refinements in the architecture enable the GTX 460 to excel in our real world testing of games, Blu-Ray 3D and GPU computing?
