Nvidia are today launching the GeForce GTX 460 GPU. Costing just $199 (£135) for the 768MB version or $229 (£150) for the 1GB card, it boasts mid-range specs at low-end pricing, which should make it a very enticing offer for PC builders looking to do some serious gaming on a low budget.
According to the Nvidia release, the card has been “built from the ground up for DirectX 11 tessellation” and features “up to 4x tessellation performance(i) over competing GPUs,”
“The GTX 460 brings the ultimate next-generation DX11 gaming experience to a new price segment, enabling more gamers than ever to experience incredibly detailed characters, terrain and game environments with blazing fast performance and awesome visuals” the release continues.
“With full support for Nvidia 3D Vision technology, the GeForce GTX 460 provides the graphics horsepower and video bandwidth needed to experience games and high definition Blu-ray movies in eye-popping stereoscopic 3D.”
