Interesting. Im not too suprised though. Overclocking the 4xx models maxes them out at around 900mhz on core alone once the heat is tamed. And thats stable on benches.

So GF104 would have 384SP units, but 48 would be disabled on this? Wonder when their yields are so good that they could bring cards with "full" GF104 ?

GF104 seems to have 16 clusters and 24SP on each (or if 336SP is full GF104 then each cluster would have 21SP)

Hmmn..that die shot seems to be fake.. that "GF104" would be just flattened GF100

it does seem to just be a flattened GF100. I wonder if they at least got some good traffic from their fake news...

The most logical arrangement for GF104 would be for it to be exactly half of a GF100: 256 SPs, 32 TMUs, 32 ROPs, and a 256-bit memory interface. Keep in mind that GF100 is a 3.20 billion transistor chip; even cutting it in half would result in a chip roughly 1.70 billion transistors big (things like display output logic and PCI Express interconnect would take the same amount of transistors). Considering that GF104 is supposedly going to compete with the Radeon HD 5700 series, it would still suffer a huge transistor disadvantage since the "Juniper" chip that powers the Radeon HD 5700 series contains only 1.04 billion transistors.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 Specs and Launch Date Leaked
Computex 2010: Word on the Computex show floor is that Nvidia's upcoming GeForce GTX 460 GPU will 'still run hot, but overclocks awesomely: you'll get GTX 480 performance.' We were told the card length is equal to that of an ATI Radeon HD 5770 (8.5in) but it has a 180W TDP at stock speeds.

The GTX 460 is set to have only 768MB of GDDR5 memory, rather than the 1GB of some HD 5770s and of all HD 5850 cards, and will use a 192-bit memory interface, which is wider than the 128-bit bus of the HD 5770 but skinnier than the 256-bit bus of a HD 5850. However, with only 240 stream processors, we find the claims that an overclocked GTX 460 will match a stock-speed GTX 480 rather far-fetched.

The GeForce GTX 460 uses the newer GF104 Fermi die, and parts will only launch with the Nvidia reference-design cooler at first, with custom coolers coming later. This is unlike the recent GeForce GTX 465, where partners could do what they wanted from day one. The GeForce GTX 460 will be available early-mid July.

Are you looking forward to mainstream Fermi parts that 'overclock awesomely?

The GeForce GTX 460 is not based on the GF104; it is yet another GF100 based product, which explains the ridiculous 180-Watt TDP. It should have 288 or 256 SPs enabled, and a further reduced memory interface (192-bit, down from 256-bit on GeForce GTX 465). Here is the important part though: the GeForce GTX 460 should be an OEM-only part, meaning you will only see these on Dell/HP/etc. computers and not on Newegg.com. This OEM-only chip is just one more way for NVIDIA to get rid of its apparently large stockpile of "broken" GF100 chips.

The GF104 based parts are a native 256 SP, 32 TMU (?), 32 ROP chip with a 256-bit memory interface. It should also have a reduced L2 cache size of 256KB, down from 768KB in the GF100. GF104 will apparently be sold under the brand moniker GeForce GT 400 series, with the rumored names being GeForce GT 460, 450, and 440.

If this turns out to be another cutdown version of GF100 then I'll do a triple backflip with my chair.

If it has 336 SP units..then it won't be cut down version of GF100.

If nVIDIA can only disable SPs in 32 blocks then yes it might be something new.

GTX 460








Quote:
We had caught sight of GTX 460 OC performance yesterday, while today we got GTX 460 reference design card.

From the original image, we can see that it features within heatpipe single-fan cooler which has two PCI-E slots, graphic card uses Dual-DVI+HDMI sockets; Double 6pin power supplying and single SLI adapter.

Based on GF104, GTX 460 is set to have 336 CPU Core/4 units GPC Design/192 bit Bus Width /768MB Memory Size, Core/Shader/Memory frequency respectively for 675/1350/1800MHz. And it prices at $230.

Under defaulted frequency, 3DMark Vantage Extreme gets 6000 scores, which closes to GTX 465. And without voltage improve, its core frequency can promote to 830MHz; While slightly improve, can reach to 900MHz, at this point, it stays the same level as GTX 470.
