Default NVIDIA Silently Launches GTX 460 SE Graphics Card

Without any fanfare what so ever, NVIDIA has launched a new budget mid-range graphics card, the GeForce GTX 460 SE.

The new model is intended to fill a rather narrow price void between the Geforce GTS 450, and GTX 460 768MB. The card offers an interesting blend of features, with 1GB of GDDR5 memory with 256-bit memory bus, exactly like the GTX 46... [ Read full article ]

Default NVIDIA Silently Launches GTX 460 SE Graphics Card

Without any fanfare what so ever, NVIDIA has launched a new budget mid-range graphics card, the GeForce GTX 460 SE. Initial pricing from EVGA, suggest the new model will compete - at least in price - directly against the GTX 460 768MB, with a listed MSRP of $179.99 USD.

on paper, this will still easily beat a 450, the margin will be smaller though.. I'd say 15%? Less shaders, a few less textures and lower clocks.. is this a damaged yield version of the gf104?

I wonder though, how the smaller about of cores will affect overclocking. and the price. if this is like $20 more then a 450, then it's probably worth it.

What is shown on the cart and in the paragraph doesn't match. Are there going to be 288 CUDA Cores or 228 CUDA Cores?

What's interesting is that they decided to use the same naming scheme. SE usually means sport edition or special edition, meaning there's more to the model, not less...

And it looks like they're copying AMD's tactics of harvesting defective cores and reselling them as a lower-end product instead of just throwing it away, just like the GTX 465. I think we'll see more and more of this in the future.

has to be 288 cores, those slides are wrong.

228 cores would be outdone by a stock 450.

GF104:

"Full" = 384 Cores
Full - 1 SM = GTX 460 = 336 Cores
Full - 2 SM = 288 Cores
Full - 3 SM = 240 Core
Full - 4 SM = 196 Cores = May as well go GF106
