[EVGA] - EVGA GeForce GTX 460 2Win Officially Announced - Page 32  

post #311 of 335
how does that work?
2x gtx 460 (1gb versions) = about 350ish
evga 2win = 425
i guess you can run the 2wins in quad sli and its in a smaller package than 2 460's, but is it worth it?

You can't Quad SLI.

Read the thread.

And single PCB comes at a price, yes.

I find it hard to see the value in that card. I would just by a 580 and OC it. The graph they used makes it look like it destroys the 580, but only has 200 point difference. Lame, and ugly.

I went ahead and bought this beast mostly because my mobo only supports SLI at x8 for both lanes (only have two PCI-E slots), and while another Stock 470 would only run me $260, again they'd only run at x8 each. This way I can slap this badboy in the one slot, and have it running at a full x16. I think it's a great dual GPU solution for those who don't want to drop $600+ . I think I'm gonna try and get some current benches with everything at stock, and then do the same with this when it comes in: but I feel like this will carry me through the next two years of gaming pretty smoothly.

Just my two cents.

I'm curious to see what kind of Benchmark Scores you'll get.

There's maybe 1-2% of difference b/t x16/x16 and x8/x8 unless you're using multiple monitors. And w/ this card you're running 2x GPUs through a single x16 lane anyways.

But since you already bought it, benchmarks pls

I liked this cards idea at first (and still do), but knew that price would make or break it like so many other things.

Price broke this one. The advantages of SLI on a single card don't justify the price of this card over 2 individual 460's in SLI. Or just spend alittle more for a 580 and at least have the option of another 580 for SLI later on.

Now in a few months time when the price of this card drops it could be an entirely different story. I hope more companies do this with more cards in the future. Could shape pricing for the better.

Bottom line the price on this card sux for now and the fact that you cannot quad SLI them cements this.

@ og4tcm: wrong move buddy :S....
It has been proven over and over that 16 x16 vs 8x8 in sli/xfire is not that much of a difference. You might see 2 fps tops... Also 2x470 on 8x each is still better than 1 460x2 @ 16x...
Anyway post some benchies and OC results .

check out this review:
http://www.hardocp.com/article/2010/...x16x16_vs_x8x8

x8 x8 vs x16 x16 is pretty irrelevant until you get to VERY HIGH resolutions like 5760x1200, and even at those resolutions the difference is very minimal.

A 2nd 470 would've given you more performance, just sayin'.

Pretty easily if you consider the numbers...

GTX580 has 512 "cuda" cores, 64 geometry shaders, and 48 pixel shaders. Core clock of 772MHZ. The effective fill rate is ~37GP/s

GTX460 "2win" has 672 "cuda" cores, 112 geometry shaders, and 64 pixel shaders. Core clock of 700MHZ. The effective fill rate is ~43GP/s.

The GTX580 may have a 10% clock speed advantage, but the GTX460-2WIN has 31% more "cuda" cores, 75% more geometry shaders, and 33% more pixel shaders. In comparisons that are fill rate bound, the GTX460-2win has a solid 16% advantage, in situations where it is not fill-rate bound, the GTX460-2win can pull ahead by an even greater margin.
