Nvidia Geforce GTX 460 to launch at Computex
Hardware-infos claim that Nvidia's next launch - the GTX 460, is set for Computex 2010, which runs from June 1-5, 2010, at Taipei. As rumoured before, the GTX 460 will be a heavily crippled version of GF100, with 12 out of the 16 SMs enabled. The memory interface will be cut to 256-bit, and subsequently, memory to 1GB. Rumoured specs also suggest only 32 ROPs compared to the GTX 480's 48. This isn't as major a cut as GTX 460's primary competitor, the HD 5830.
Given GF100's dismal yield rates, it is likely that Nvidia has already binned a large number of 12 SM GF100 chips, ready to go into the GTX 460. It makes a lot of sense that the GTX 460 will be here sooner rather than later. Still, GF100's thermal issues will likely be carried over to the GTX 460.
