Hmmm, after reading this and the other reviews, and looking at the numbers I'm beginning to wonder why did Nvidia even create the castrated 470 aka Geforce GTX 465? As from the numbers the $50 to $75 USD they cost isn't even worth it from a performance standpoint.

Ah, good to see you'll have a 460 1024MB SLI article coming as well. It will be interesting to see how the additional ROPs and frame buffer affect the product. I have a feeling that they'll prove most beneficial at 1920 and above. Still, even these models were pretty impressive with their scaling.

How's the minimum fps compared to GTX470 and GTX480 ? Gameplay feels smooth even when fps hits around 30 ?

I'm seriously thinking about buying two of these...

I'd wonder how the Palit GeForce GTX 460 1024MB Sonic Platinum will perform in sli, it might even catch up with the gtx 470.

Problem with that card is that it's 263Ä here... Cheapest GTX 470 is 299Ä from Pixmania and 319Ä from elsewhere.

...don't see any reason why this puppy won't be the mid-range king for the rest of 2010 - NVIDIA ought to get plenty of sales with this GPU I imagine.

Fermi SLI scales way awesome, when I first installed my cards a month ago and ran my first game, I was amazed at how much better it was than my old 260's.

I donít think SLI scaling has anything to do with the cards itís all about the driver and how it takes advantage of the graphic cards according to each game, I remember how NVIDIA released the GTX 295 it really scaled well much better than if you but two GTX 260 in SLI, that is why old graphic cards donít perform as well as they should because the manufacturer has no more interest in promoting old products, that is what we call marketing, I know this because Iím a marketing manager myself and Iím only being honest with you and I hope I donít offend anybody by saying this because I like NVIDIA & I always buy their products but people have to be aware that NVIDIA have a very aggressive marketing behaviour they released the GTX 470 & GTX 465 to compete with certain ATI product when they had a much better & cheaper product in hand and they have a new one in hand which is the GTX 490 that most likely combines two GTX 460 to compete with the ATIís 5970 cards, to be honest they are very good at this but some time it could backfire especially when ATI are getting ready to release a enhanced series of the 5000 chips, I seriously believe people should speak their mind not be blinded by their loyalty to a certain brand.

It has improved none the less, fps is almost double, as it should be. If they keep this up, I might actually consider SLI next time I upgrade.

Don't think its a secret the Nvidia is very aggresive when it comes to marketing, this is what puts people off, but its one of the things i like about them, i've never had time for passive companies.

Im my time here at Guru3D, i've noticed no shortage of people who speak their mind, that certainly isn't a problem here, and as far as i know ATI are not getting ready to release anything.

Can't wait to see more 1gb results in SLI, as much as the 768mb one looks great, im not willing to downgrade in GPU memory, especially when this GTX260 frequently runs out as it is.

So you are saying to me if you were someone who bought a gtx 465 for 230 £ and then find out after two weeks only that they have a new card 80 £ cheaper and has the same performance that you like their marketing policy. Unbelievable

Thats the name of the game when it comes to PC hardware.

If it isn't obsolete by the time you get it home, then you got lucky.

People knew this card was coming when the GTX465 arrived, and they also knew it was based on GF104, if people base purchases based on higher or lower numbers, then they deserve what they get.

I donít know about you but us Londoners we call that a plain rip-off, in the UK we have been ripped-off for so long now and we are fed up of it and its time that we speak up, they told us windows 7 was going to be amazing, what a load of rubbish and it just keeps going on, you can stay all day glorifying NVIDIA on this forum but I will always expose those how prey on peopleís ignorance until you band me from your forums and then that will tell the whole story about people speaking their minds.

lol an ATI conspiracy theorist, how original. It has been known all along that the gf104 would be much improved. have more TMUs, overclock higher and consume less power, they never kept a secret to screw people over hilbert posted that he got the 460's to over 900mhz core a few days before release and the general specs were known long before.

You blame Nvidia for ununformed consumers...you know...the kind of uninformed consumer that buys a 980x and will cry next year when a mid range chip at 1/3rth of the price outperforms it...or people who buy a 5000 series card later this year before the refresh...or people that buy a 400 series card later this year..again, before the refresh, as redemption said this is how the industry goes.
