Nvidia GeForce GTX 460: The Fermi We Were Waiting For

Benchmark Results: Just Cause 2 (DX11)

This one’s a TWIMTBP title, so it’s hardly a surprise to see Nvidia cards dominating the top at 1680x1050. Although the GeForce GTX 465 bests the 460 1 GB, the gap isn’t large enough to warrant any sort of price premium. These achieve the same performance level, essentially.

AMD’s Radeon HD 5850 ascends the ranks at 1920x1200, passing Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 465, which itself finishes ahead of both GeForce GTX 460 cards.

At 2560x1600, the Radeon HD 5830 nudges past the 768 MB GeForce GTX 460 board, but still comes in behind the GeForce GTX 460 1 GB.

    Finally, the price wars from the 4000/GTX 200 ages are back!

    At last, Nvidia has impressed me(to a certain extent).But where's power consumption in SLI?

    Great review as always, Chris.

    I have never waited for this... It's not "we", it must be "some people".

    Note: That is if you consider "me" in that "we".

    the 5830 i think is a better card, hell you can get a 5770 super-clock it and thats the same speed as a GTX460 for a fraction of the price!
