I came across "v2" of GeForce GTX 460 when looking at NVIDIA's 280.26 driver release notes. There was relatively little information on these products. However, I then saw this on Palit's site: http://www.palit.biz/palit/vgapro.php?id=1828 The above link indicates that the GeForce GTX 460 cards have been gimped with 192-bit memory bus and higher clocks to compensate for the same. Given that the cards still boast 1GB of memory, I'd say the memory configuration of these cards is similar to that of the GeForce GTX 550 Ti (i.e. possibly "flex" memory configuration with full 192-bit bandwidth going to 768MB memory and only 32/64-bit bandwidth going to the remaining 256MB). This presents possibly significant performance implications for the GeForce GTX 460 cards, and thus the newer V2 cards may not approach the performance of the older cards, especially at high resolutions with AA/AF. Theory is that these are "reject" GF114 cores rather than GF104 cores. Someone will have to find out for sure. For now Palit and MSI are selling these V2 cards (including maybe an MSI HAWK model). Other brands, for now, still seem to be selling the old GTX 460 cards. (The same applies for GTX 460 SE V2 - it seems to be a 192-bit version with higher clocks compared to the normal GeForce GTX 460 SE, which now potentially makes it worse than the GeForce GTX 550 Ti).

It's just gotten one step closer to the 550 Ti.
