A member of Chinese forums PCinlife has leaked pictures of what is allegedly the reference
design of the upcoming GF104-based GTX 460.

The first thing noticeable is the size. The GTX 460 is definitely
shorter than the other GTX 400 series cards. The size seems comparable
to the HD 5770, which is just over 8″ long.

It features a rather large fan in the center, which is different from the blower type normally associated with GPUs. The 460 features 2 DVI ports and an HDMI port.

However, it is the back of the GTX 460 which reveals most details. For starters, it feature 2 x 6-pin PCI-e connectors, which suggests a power draw of somewhere between 150W and 225W. The bracket under the GPU seems like it is holding a rather large rectangular GPU, which is in agreement with previously leaked die-shots. 8 memory chips are visible, which means this is the GTX 460 1GB version.

The GTX 460 contains only 1 SLI port, which means only a 2-way GTX 460 SLI is possible. This is normal for cards in the mainstream segment, such as the HD 5770.

GTX 460 promises to be Nvidia’s best product in a long while. We will watch out for more rumours and information as we build up to its release in mid-July. The latest specifications and performance indications can be viewed in our recent article.
