So in the end we have a very fast card, as fast as AMD's own very fast card. But is there really a place for such a beast in the world today?
The GTX 460 was an awesome card when it first tipped up, and the GTX 560 Ti is following in those footsteps. What's changed though is that those footsteps are far more well trod than they were when the GTX 460 came out.
Nvidia has just launched it's newest, second generation DirectX 11 graphics card, the GeForce GTX 580; let the battle for the high-end commence.
This TOP Edition's overclocked loving though does give it the edge, but the cost here too is going to make things tricky when you're making your buying decision. It's still a good card, but it's really only as good as the AMD offering. Unfortunately then for NVIDIA it's not quite the card-killer that it might have hoped it would be; maybe worth a look in SLI but for now it's still far too close to call definitively.
Nvidia has announced its latest family of Fermi laptop graphics chips this week, balancing support for 3D with decent battery life.
Barely a month after Nvidia's last GF100 graphics card, the GTX 465, struggled out the stable door another new graphics card, the GTX 460 has turned up to steal its thunder.
