    Here they are folks, pictures of the GeForce GTX 480 and GeForce GTX 470 complete with partner branding. These come from XFX, both sticking to NVIDIA's reference design. The XFX GeForce GTX 480 comes with the usual feature set of 1536 MB of GDDR5 memory, 480 CUDA cores, and a broad feature set that includes support for DirectX 11, CUDA, PhysX, 3D Vision Surround, and 3-way SLI. The GeForce GTX 470 retains this feature set, albeit with 448 CUDA cores, and 1280 MB of GDDR5 memory. The two will be released on the 26th of March.

    So are those lines on the face of the 480 the fins of the heat sink? If so, how would that effect air movement and your case temp?

    WTF, you gonna make a blind upgrade?

    I mean this card is consuming 100 watts more than 5870 and givin anly 5% more performance. Are you unable to understand that?

    No thanks, I am not buying it for 499$. You can waste your money.

    Ya, it looks like a solid piece on top with fins under it I assume. If it is, It looks quite effective. Good looking cards.

    They only look about 2mm tall to me, if not less. So I don't think the difference will be all that noticeable XD

    looks better than my 5970 :twitch:

    Is the 480 better than 5970 or will a card like GTX 485 or 495 come out?

    I dont think a 480 will touch your 5970,or two touch two x 5970.

    Easy there. These were typically what people inclined to buy ATI cards are used to hearing. But now the tables are about to turn (if those power consumption and performance figures are on par with what we're hearing). Brace yourself for GeForce FX vs. Radeon 9000 GeForce GTX 400 vs. Radeon HD 5000.

    That is a small card for this kind of power.

    I can wait to see some reviews :).

    I always preferred and bought NVIDIA.

    Is a choice, has long been waiting for this new graphics card releases now long overdue.

    OH yes ! I will spend 600 bills or 700 for these I do not care if they eat more watt, of what I never bought that ATI cards. If nvidia have decided so, so be it. Moreover I have always been happy
