NVIDIA has announced a new addition to their GeForce GTX line of graphics cards – the GeForce GTX 460.
Like the rest of the GTX line (based on NVIDIA’s Fermi architecture), the GTX 460 supports DirectX 11. The GTX 460 will play DirectX 11 game titles at high resolution (1920×1200) and supports NVIDIA’s 3D Vision in full 1080P HD. NVIDIA says that the GTX 460 compared to the GeForce 8800 GT provides 4.5x the geometry horsepower and up to 2.6x the gaming performance. The GTX 460 will come in 2 flavors:
- GTX 460 768MB with 192-bit memory interface – Estimated U.S. Price $199
- GTX 460 1GB with 256-bit memory interface – Estimated U.S. Price $229
The GTX 460 768 version is available starting today, the GTX 460 1GB version will be available later this month.
