GF104, Geforce GTX 460 to be top overclocker
The big hope
We have heard that the second generation Fermi, or the chip that we know as GF104 should have much better overclocking than the GF100. The new chip should come without the L2 cache that might be responsible for weak Fermi overclocking scores, and this should be the chip to save Nvidia's graphics pride.
GF104 will also come with rather attractive pricing, should end up significantly cheaper than Geforce GTX 465 and we would not even be surprised if GF104 based card ends up with GTS prefix.
Launch date should be sometime in late June and the cards should be available at launch. Samples are available to partners and key accounts for a while and the official launch should take place in the next two weeks, of course unless Nvidia decides to push it to July or later.
