nVidia GeForce GTX 460 768MB GDDR5 Review
With the tests now complete, it is now time to wrap this review up.
In terms of performance, the GTX 460 has much to offer. Straight from the box, you can expect performance that (at least) matches the previous range topping GTX 285 but with the ability to utilise Direct X 11, nVidia's 3D Vision as well as triple monitor support with the addition of a second graphics card. We are also pleased to report that the graphics card is cool, relatively quiet and if our sample is a valid representitive of retail samples, it also overclocks heavily and with ease.
Now let's discuss pricing. Today you can purchase GTX 460 768MB units for £139.99 and 1GB units for £188.87 available from CCL Online. Depending on the version that you pick, it is either slightly cheaper or slightly dearer than the Cypress based HD 5830. On the basis of the card's performance and that it's as much as £80 less than the preceding GTX 465, we are almost onto a winner here.
Based on the results that we have obtained, we believe that the GTX 460 768MB represents excellent value for money. For those who cannot quite afford ATi's "bang per buck" HD 5850 graphics card, then this new offering may just fit the bill. One things for sure is that if we were in the market to buy one, we certainly wouldn't say no. Fantastic work nVidia.
