Inno3D Ready to Ship GeForce 400 Series Graphics Accelerators

Here are some delicious pictures of Inno3D's dispatch of GeForce GTX 400 series graphics cards, that are ready to ship. Come 26th March, and box-loads of these will reach markets all over. Initially inventories of GeForce 400 series cards across board partners could be low, but it is normal for a new GPU to have small inventories initially, which iron out in a few fortnights' time. Inno3D's accelerators most likely adhere to NVIDIA's reference designs.

This is the 4th box ive seen and not one of them has directx11 on them.Is nvidia keeping it a secret?Or are we supposed to just know that it supports directx11?
Even if they shipped GTX4xx cards with no Dx11 support it would be no great loss. There are only few games out there right now that support Dx11 (literally only a few) and about 7-8 more scheduled to be released this year, and you can bet few of them will be delayed until next year or canceled altogether. Also, many of these Dx11 games use very few of the features Dx11 API brings to the table. In other words, some of those Dx11 games are barely Dx11 games to being with. Of course, we know nVidia has Dx11 taken care of, but it seems Dx11 saturation is shaping up to be no different than what happened with Dx10. For every Dx11 or Dx10 game scheduled to be released this year, there are what... 20-30 Dx9 games.

Myself, I'm more interested in raw-power of these cards for benching purposes than anything else. My SLI'd GTX 260 cards can play almost anything I throw at them already, at high-res even.

Last time I heard someone said they would cost "an arm and a leg" If thats the case, I am just thankful I am nearly 50 and have had good use outta mine already.
I don't mind the cost, still going to get one.

I just hope my 600w PSU will be able to handle it and rest of my system. I'll probably get the card and a new PSU to go along with it.:)

But it has not one, but two 6-pin power connectors!

The 480 has a 6-pin and an 8-pin :eek:

You changed a 's' to a 'z' all because you hate King George III? Whoa you guys must've really hated that bloke.

As for the cards all it means is they will be here soon not they are here now. You have to fake suicide and cash in your life insurance policy to get a Fermi graphics card.

Funny thing is, strange as it seems, and forgive me for being naive, but I always thought that when you lower the fabrication process and move forward into new architecture, the general idea was that the power consumption reduced, shit if I plugged a new graphics card into a nuclear power station and cooled it with several artic ice flows I am sure even I could get some decent clock speeds and performance.

I like how everyone is analyzing every little thing just to pull some justification for bashing the card.

Some OEMs are using 3xx names for rebrands. But I guess Nvidia will rename current 285 as higher end of 3xx.

Or skip it.

Umm... My GTX295 box wasn't shrink wrapped - nor were my 5850's. They both had those little security stickers holding the flaps closed.

Tee hee, i said 'flaps'.

Someone say gammon.

Alot of stores in usa dont shrink wrap them until they get into the stores main warehouse.They have to put the security tag inside the box before they shrink wrap them.So the seller does the shrink wrapping ,not the distributor.

and that's for ONE card :shadedshu

mm...let's see....
$600 for GTX280
$1000 for 980X
$200 for new PSU

about $1800 to spend to make your friend jealous :rolleyes:
