The long-awaited debut - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 and GTX 470 are officially

Saturday, March 27, 2010

Among the features of the GPU architecture-based Fermi can note the presence of three billion transistors and support high-speed memory bus GDDR5. Nor can say about the full support of a set of software libraries, DirectX 11 was first implemented in the products NVIDIA.
The two new graphics cards support proprietary technologies NVIDIA CUDA, PhysX, and 3D Vision Surround (the latter implements the 3D functionality on three monitors) and optimized to work in a tripartite SLI mode (3-way SLI). The system interface adapter includes video output Dual DVI n mini-HDMI.

During cooling of the GeForce GTX 480 and GeForce GTX 470 correspond dvuhslotovye coolers, and their power system includes additional power connectors (in configuration 8 + 6 pin and 6 + 6 pins, respectively). Added that both accelerator designed to compete with the decisions of AMD in a series ATI Radeon HD 5800, built on the basis of the chip Cypress.

With regard to the characteristics of the two latest video card NVIDIA, a GeForce GTX 480 is the new flagship of the company from Santa Clara and is positioned as the fastest graphics accelerator in the world. It has a length of 267 mm and carries on board 480 nuclei CUDA, 1536 MB GDDR5 c 384-bit memory interface and 60 texture units.

Clock speeds are equal to 700/1401/3696 MHz for the GPU, shader and memory, respectively, and a TDP with GeForce GTX 480 is 250 watts. In turn, the accelerator GeForce GTX 470 length 241 mm equipped with a 448 core CUDA, 1280 MB of GDDR5 memory with 320-bit memory interface and 56 texture units.

Working frequency GeForce GTX 470 are 607, 1215 and 3348 MHz for the GPU, shader and memory, respectively, and a TDP is at 215 watts. Recommended price for graphics card NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 and GeForce GTX 470 is $ 499 and $ 349 respectively, and the emergence of a broad sell these adapters is expected in April.
