Benchmarks GeForce GTX380 and GTX360 reveal potential solutions based on the Fermi

Monday, December 14, 2009

Although graphics cards AMD technology to support DirectX 11 are already actively sold quite a long time, similar solutions from NVIDIA has not even represented in the form of real products. Only recently it became known that the first accelerator based on 40 nm chips will be the Fermi card GeForce GTX 360 and GeForce GTX 380, but their release is scheduled for the first quarter of 2010.

Despite the considerable backlog of scheduled release, officials NVIDIA assured that expectation would not be in vain, and video cards based on chips Fermi show really remarkable results in terms of performance. And now, it seems there information supporting these statements. Resource Guru3D has published several caught him slide NVIDIA, which shows the results of internal testing accelerator GeForce GTX380 and GTX360 in games Far Cry 2, Resident Evil 5, STALKER Clear Sky.

According to the data, video card GeForce GTX380 has a sufficiently weighty advantage over the fastest today adapter Radeon HD 5970. In turn, the accelerator GeForce GTX 360 significantly outperforms its competitor in terms of speed Radeon HD 5870. Thus, as the market introduction of products based on Fermi latest AMD solutions will, finally, worthy opponent.

With regard to the technical characteristics of GeForce GTX 380 and GeForce GTX 360, the first of these models include three billion transistors and 512 stream processors, 48 raster and 128 blocks of texture and GDDR5 memory and 384-bit memory interface. Clock frequency of this accelerator are 650/1700/1050 MHz for the GPU, shader, and memory, respectively. Specifications GeForce GTX 360 graphics card somewhat modest, but still look very dignified - 384 stream processors, 40 raster and 96 texture units and GDDR5 memory with 320-bit memory interface, and its frequency characteristics are 650/1500/1050 MHz for the graphics core, shader and memory, respectively.
