Sources from graphics card makers have been talking to news and rumor site DigiTimes about mainstream and entry-level versions of Nvidia's Fermi-based GeForce GTX 470 and 480 videocards. According to the tech chatter, the mainstream model will come built about Nvidia's GF106 core and ship in July, while the entry-level part will use the GF108 core and make its debut in August.
Meanwhile, Nvidia will target the mid-range market with its upcoming GeForce GTX 460 (GF104) videocard, which is expected to ship in early June for $299. According to German website 3DCenter.org, the GTX 460 will come with 256 shader cores, 64 TMUs, 32 ROPs, and feature a 256-bit memory bus.
Pricing on the GF106 and GF108 is expected to be around $180 and $100, respectively, according to sources. Naturally, Nvidia wasn't willing to comment on unannounced products, so take these price points with a grain of salt.
