    Fermi. Hot, power-hungry, big, loud, late and overpriced. Yeah right!

    It's a decent card but it's not selling and next months release of the 6770 will basically kill it stone dead. nVidia needs to give up on this series and aim to close the gap for the next.

    GTX460 is none of that (well, except late )

    Re: News - GeForce GTX 460 prices slashed

    me too this always happens just not as quickly. the report does say they are selling like hot cakes so maybe Nvidia are just trying to take over the mid range market especially as the 6000 series are on the way.

    Same. D: Though I got the 1gb so not quite as bothered...but still :/ Serves me right for actually buying something new for once.

    Really tempted now to get 2 of these in SLI as they're faster than a GTX480.

    Problem is i feel that they'd make a racket and and I'd also have to spend £100 odd to upgrade my PSU.

    Re: News - GeForce GTX 460 prices slashed

    If you got the right model then they should be fairly quiet. The one I've got atm is fairly silent and runs at 38deg idle, and I can't see that a decent case wouldn't see to keeping it around that for SLI.

    Wouldn't a TX650 PSU do the job?

    Re: News - GeForce GTX 460 prices slashed

    Selling like hotcakes = selling out, if you sell everything you can get your hands on you don't drop the price. 1GB cards are selling well because for a chance Nvidia have a card available under £200 with decent performance, something they haven't had for a good while.

    The 768mb version wasn't selling well though, because it was priced to close to the 1gb and is slower in every way, it was just bad value.

    But the more obvious reasoning for the price cut is the impending gts450, gts455(which is supposed to be a cut down 460gtx) and very likely scrapping the 768mb 460gtx entirely, moving the 1gb down a price point and introducing the 384shader model GF104 at around the current 460gtx 1GB price point.

    The reason for all this, the AMD 6000 series cards, due late October. One retailer has already said on their forums this pricing from Nvidia is set to last 6-8 weeks, which truly shockingly, will coincide with the release of the 6770/6750 cards, which will probably offer around GTX 460 1gb performance, at around the £120-140 price bracket.

    Basically this is EOL pricing on the 768mb version and them trying to sell every last card they can(at a seeming loss, remembering that the GF104, per core, is bigger than a 5850 die and costs more to Nvidia to make) so they don't have a couple hundred thousand stuck on the shelves in two months with faster and cheaper AMD cards available.

    Depending on how many 470gtx's are left, probably very few by now, you might see a few fantastic deals early to mid October and same goes for most of the 5000 series pricing as the whole range is set to be refreshed over a two month period, with as usual high/mid end due in the same 2-3 week period and the low end to follow a month or two later.

    That doesn't change the fact the gtx460 768, and the GTX 470 being great value buys right now due to their essentially EOL pricing, however, it does make you wonder what performance you can expect at the same price point in only a couple months, the answer, is probably more.

    Like 99% of the time then...

    Still I only had my 460 768MB for a month or two, now it's £50 less - that's worse than usual rate of loss!

    hehe, the best time to buy, and card to buy, is usually the card one/two steps from the top model, soon after launch. The 5850 has been by MILES the best value card in the past year, if you got one around launch, you'd only in the past month be able to get a 470/460 offering similar levels of performance for the money, the 460gtx is up to 20-30% slower in higher res/more intense situations, and is about 20% cheaper. The 470gtx is finally on par, but its making Nvidia a serious loss, the problem being £200 now gets you a very good card but that will be either 20-30% cheaper or for £200 a 20-30% faster card in under 2 months now.

    The 5870/480gtx were and still are bad value, 10-15% more performance, 40-55% of the cost of the next card down, basically horrible value any way you cut it.

    6870/6850 won't be a huge step forward as they are limited to the 40nm process, you can expect 25-40% faster depending on the game, 30-35% on average which isn't half bad for around a 15% die size increase.

    Its more the effect the 6770 and low end cards that will have on the prices below them that will have an interesting effect.


    In two months the 460gtx 1gb will almost certainly be around the £125 price point, the 768mb version will be gone replaced by the 455gts, the 450gts will be sub £100, and frankly not be too hot at all, slower than a 5770, which is just about to be replaced by a 6770. The 475gtx should be out, 384shader version of the 460gtx 1gb at likely around the same price as teh 1gb 460gtx now.

    EOL pricing will be better when the new cards are actually out, current pricing is pre EOL panick pricing anyway, expect £100 768mb cards in another month. Bad time to buy anytime really within 3 months of a new set of cards coming out, then either the new cards or the EOL'd old cards are generally very good value that will last a while and not depreciate much over a year.

    Re: News - GeForce GTX 460 prices slashed

    I just hope the HD6750 or HD6770 still use a single PCI-E power connector. Too many of the sub £150 cards seem to require a pair of PCI-E power connectors!

    The 5770 tops out at 108w so it could be a tight squeeze for the 125w limit for the 6770. The 6750 should make it easily enough though.
