    An online PC hardware store, SabrePC.com, has listed a graphics card based on NVIDIA's upcoming DirectX 11 compliant GeForce GTX 480 GPU. And the price: $699 before a $20 rebate. The listing is of a graphics card by NVIDIA partner XFX.

    The specifications known at this point in time are that the GeForce GTX 480 is based on NVIDIA's GF100 graphics processor. It is DirectX 11 compliant, and has 512 shader units (dubbed CUDA cores), a 384-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, and multiple tessellation units. NVIDIA is expected to announce the card along with a cheaper variant, the GeForce GTX 470, later this quarter. By early Q2, the company expects healthy inventories.

    They have also listed cards from PNY, and they also listed the gtx 470 for both PNY and XFX as well, both of which (gtx 470s) are $499.99

    Rofl yeah! :D

    Î do fine with 5850, all at max at 1920x1080, crysis is only 80% very high :(
    but jeez, that card is a cheap one! 299

    Nvidia wont get many sales before the lower end renames come.

    Holy shit how expensive! Wonder how much the dual-GPU card will cost...

    So looking at the price, I guess the GTX 480 is up against the Radeon 5970? Waay too expensive. But the GTX 470 might be ok. If it beats the Radeon 5870 quite clearly.

    Lol all the customer-reviews are from overhyped Nvidia fanboys drooling on their keyboard :laugh:

    It only boils down to, how much premium do you pay for the name(most of the cards) the 280/285 is still more expensive than 5850, and 5850 is way better.

    How much faster is it( 470 is faster than 5870 no doubt) but will it be worth the money.

    LOL...I for one have doubts on how fast these cards really are. But even if the 470 does manage to beat the 5870 (which I am not sure it will) Nvidia is killing themselves with these prices.

    lol if the 480 is only 20% FASTER then the 5870 i doubt the 470 will compare to a 5850 or beat a 5870 since a 5850 can overclock just as far and be just as fast as a 5870 so i highly doubt nvidias 470 will beat a 5850 let alone a 5870 and im willing to speculate these gpus wont overclock much. but as said its speculation real reviews will show us whats what

    pricing

    I guess the green team went crazy for good. In these hard times, they ask for 700$ for a damn GPU?
    I also guess that my plan consisting of waiting for them to launch their DX11 cards so I can buy a cheaper 5870 won't work, since I can hardly see AMD having to cut their prices to any of their cards. Even if the 480 is GPU-heaven and works 500% better then a 5870, how many will buy them? And why buy them? How many games need something like this? If I stay at 1680x1050, even my 4850 works nicely in almost all the games.

    Blah, whatever, I feel sickened by nvidia's attitude - I only hope they stay in the game to prevent AMD from approching the market from the same monopolist angle. Lucky us with AMD, I guess, in the end.

    Some people pay for the name but there are people like me who pay for stability and compatibility. Sorry but I just played with a 5770 and it's a no go for ATI with me.

    I guess they should have healthy inventories cause they won't sell many at that price I'm guessing..:laugh:

    That's funny, I stopped using nVidia for that exact reason, but let's not let threadcrap.

    On-topic: nVidia has either a beast of a card on their hands, or they've lost all sense of reality. Can't wait to find out which it is.

    Single GPU 5870 = 399$ Dual GPU 5970 = 699$ (649 in discount) and not 2 * 399 = 798. Just sayin'. :D

    Well, old Charlie has been bleating on about numbers - he reckons it's only about 5% faster than a 5870. I'd take that with a grain of salt mind you, but worrying if it's true.

    Whatever the reality, if it's going to drive down ATI's prices, at that price point it's going to have to be goodly quicker than a 5870.
