Gainward Set to Release GTX 460 with 2GB of VRAM

Category: Video Cards
Posted: 02:46PM

NVIDIA just released its GTX 460 with much success. The card is available in either a 768MB or 1GB GDDR5 configuration and performs great with either. Gainward though feels that the GTX 460 could benefit from even more memory as it is getting set to launch a 460 with 2GB of VRAM. This GTX 460 will be launched under Gainward's Golden Sample branding and will have two DVI outputs, one mini-HDMI, and one D-Sub to help you connect to any monitor you wish. Even with the extra VRAM, this card will only have a 700MHz core clock which is just 25MHz more than a stock card. The memory will see no increase in speed but perhaps the extra one gigabyte will make a bigger difference. I will wait for a review to see if the extra VRAM actually does give a benefit though.

No word on pricing or availabilty has been announced but expect it to cost just a bit more than a 1GB GTX 460.

funny thing with my GTS 250 1GB, when I run Unigine in DX10 mode the VRAM is completely full so 2GB might prove to be useful in DX10 and DX11 games

Sparkel is supposed to have a 2GB card also.

wont this just turn out like the 2gb 4890 vaporX from sapphire.. not much improvement over the 1gb and certainly not worth the extra $ ?
