The mythical “dual-GF104″ has been doing rounds in the rumour mill for over 3-4 months now. It was even rumoured to be branded GeForce GTX 490 over 4 months ago. Till date, neither a fully enabled GF104 nor a dual-GF104 has materialized. Zotac, one of NVIDIA’s premier AICs, has taken upon itself to create a non-reference monster GPU – a true dual GTX 460. While not as insane as the Asus dual-GF100 Mars II, the Zotac GTX 460 X2 is still quite the monster. It comes equipped with 2×8-pin power connectors, which breaks the PCI-SIG spec, and is likely to consume between 300W and 375W.

The mythical “dual-GF104″ has been doing rounds in the rumour mill for over 3-4 months now. It was even rumoured to be branded GeForce GTX 490 over 4 months ago. Till date, neither a fully enabled GF104 nor a
dual-GF104 has materialized. Zotac, one of NVIDIA’s premier AICs, has
taken upon itself to create a non-reference monster GPU – a true dual
GTX 460. While not as insane as the Asus dual-GF100 Mars II,
the Zotac GTX 460 X2 is still quite the monster. It comes equipped with
2×8-pin power connectors, which breaks the PCI-SIG spec, and is likely
to consume between 300W and 375W.

The two GF104 GPUs are connected by a NF200 chip for on-board SLI. Each GPU features 1GB 256-bit memory, a total of 2GB, though Zotac have not ruled out 4GB. The clock speeds are unknown at this time, but it is suggested they may be different from the reference GTX 460 1 GB card. The card features 4xDVI and 1xHDMI outputs.

The price and release date are unknown, though, and with the GTX 580 releasing (or at least paper-releasing) in November, it will be interesting to see where the GTX 460 X2 card will end up.
