NVIDIA may have third GTX 400 chipset
NVIDIA is said to be working on a third high-end Fermi-based graphics card, at the bottom part of the GeForce GTX 400-series lineup. An unnamed but historically reliable source says the card will be known as the GTX 460 and have 1GB of GDDR5 RAM along with a 256-bit memory interface. It will use an NVIDIA-reference board design, but third parties are said to have their own design rights.
No other technical information has been leaked. The GeForce GTX 460 is said to be released on June 1st, with a price near that of the existing ATI Radeon HD 5850, or about $260.
The faster GTX 480 and 470 are just becoming available but are substantially more expensive. The flagship GTX 480 is expected to cost about $500. [via EXPReview]
