Stripped-down version of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 with 288 CUDA cores details

Stripped-down version of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 with 288 cores CUDA — details

Confirmed rumors of preparation by NVIDIA yet another embodiment productive graphic card GeForce GTX 460, which debuted last summer. In contrast to the already released versions where the difference was in a different amount of & ldquo-nabortnoyi & rdquo-memory GDDR5 (768 bits or 1 Mb/192 Hb/256 bits), the new version uses 40 nm chip GF104, which further SM deactivated one unit.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 SE

Thus, given that each such block contains 48 cores CUDA, the total number of CUDA cores in NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 SE (it is the so-called novelty) is 288, not 336, as previously presented versions. Naturally, this could in some way affect the performance of the new accelerator, even at saved maximum of the subsystem memory (1GB GDDR5 memory with 256-bit interface). -

However, other specifications of NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 SE include support for DirectX 11 technology and SLI mode. As clock frequencies, they are equal to 650/1300/1700 (3400) MHz for the GPU, shader and memory respectively, which is slightly lower than in previous versions. Thus, the level of performance NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 SE version is only slightly ahead of GeForce GTX 460 with 768 MB of memory. Adding that the company's partners from Santa Clara, for example, MSI, EVGA and Zotac, quietly has started to release their versions of GeForce GTX 460 SE.
