looks like Newegg jumped the gun again, or stay tuned for possibly the official release which brings out the reviews!

Newegg now has 12 different GeForce GTX 460 graphics cards available for purchase with reference, overclock, super-overclock and Palit's "Sonic" for options.

Prices currently are ranging from $199 for the base models up to $229 for overclocked and non-reference designs.

don't forget the initial specifications were leaked a few days ago

the originally leaked specs were dead on but in addition, card Lengths vary from 7.4" to 8.82" depending on model

NVIDIA released this video:



NVIDIA Blog wrote:Back in March, NVIDIA launched the fastest most technologically advanced GPU in the world – the GeForce GTX 480. I borrowed a pair of GTX 480s out of our lab and took some time to geek out over the visual bliss delivered by 6 billion transistors worth of graphics horsepower.

When I brought the cards back to the lab, one of our summer interns asked me when our next Fermi GPU, the GeForce GTX 460, was going to be available. He was a big PC gamer and had been saving up all summer for a new graphics card but didn’t think he would be able to save enough for a GTX 480. Instead, he knew from testing out an early version of the GTX 460 that he loved its performance, and of course, its price. When a gamer with access to all the latest graphics cards on the market tells you that he’s waiting for the GTX 460 – you know you have something special on your hands.

Well today is the day, my friend. The GTX 460, the next great gamers’ GPU from NVIDIA, has arrived.

The GTX 460 is the first graphics card that will be able to play today’s most demanding Direct X 11 titles at high resolution – 1920x1200 – with playable frame rates, for under $230. For those gamers that bought a $200 graphics card a few years ago, now is a great time to upgrade. Compared to the GeForce 8800 GT, for example, the GTX 460 provides 4.5x the geometry horsepower, up to 2.6x the gaming performance, 4.5x the PhysX performance, and 3D Vision in full 1080P HD.
We package all this performance up in a graphics card that is only eight and a half inches long with a whisper quiet fan so you can fit it into a compact chassis that is perfect for the home or toting to your favorite LAN parties.

they're planning to make this the "next 8800GT" which is a tough act to follow as one of the best selling video cards of all time

If it truly was the next 8800GT it would be as fast as a GTX470 imo.

I am going to buy one though; since after some unplanned uninsured dental work I can no longer build a new rig this year and have to upgrade.
