If I was a board partner, I would come out with a 480GTX Hot'n'Heavy edition.



^^ that would be sort of what my card design would look like. :cool:

Dont lie... you would buy one. I know im getting 2 :D

Will weight be an issue that is the question... The 5870/5970 was getting fairly heavy to support itself...

GTX 280 stock cooler is 548g, doubt this is any heavier. And the cooler mount to the back bracket with couple screws to lessen the load on the card. Accelero GTX280 is 632g and the double core version is even more. Still it's quite a lot when people get scared of 1kg CPU coolers :)

as long as you use the case screwholes, honestly you should be fine... the 9800GX2 weighed 1.1kg. so... yeah... no way theyre gonna beat that this time unless that cooler is made of iron/lead/depleted uranium.

A Noctua NH-D14 Dual Radiator cpu cooler weighs 900g without fans and they hang out perpendicular from the mobo. My old GTX295 weighed a ton. Almost any card will be secure as long as it is attached with the retaining screws.

really doesn't look any different from any other nvidia design hopefully it proves me wrong but isn't this just a pair of GTX285's superglued together talking as one? kinda like the GTX285 is just a pair of G92's glued together

whoa!!! lol where'd u get that idea. where u been cdawall? GF100(GTX 4XX series) is a new architecture, i can't explain everything but here's a link that should help u understand teh difference. I've never heard that the GT200 was G92's glued together either, i suppose it could be seen that way. HD 5XXX imo is closest you can get to previous GPU's glued together. Exactly double of everything.

Very true. Though, oddly enough, GT200 was just a beefed up G92(not two glued together, just beefed up), similar to RV770 being a beefed up RV670. This is why the G92 cards worked perfectly as mid-range parts to the GT200 parts, and really why nVidia did not need to make a new GPU to fill that role. Of course that lead to all the renaming BS...

Nicely done, maybe include the screenshot of the benchmark settings (this one) in your post so the results make more sense.

:rolleyes:

Only 4 partners will launch Fermi (this might be for Europe only) and XFX won't be one.
Cards won't ship until 1 or 2 weeks after launch. though partner availability in May will be quite bigger.

NV Hopes to get the speeds from the B1 chip that everyone is expecting from the launch chips. So we're a couple of months away from seeing the true GF100 performance.

its still the same design NV has been using since the ti4X00 series and like you both said GT200 was a beefed up G92 i just voted it was two glued together in effect thats what i see it as. until i see fermi on the street and it actually behaves differently that the current NV cards which are just bigger and bigger brothers to the last card i still think its just a bloated ti4200 with fancy gizmos attached

the slogan should be "fermi old tech with a fancy new cooler!"



ahh look its the original

PCB design perhaps, but the GPU tech is very different. Read whitepapers and you will see it is the evolution of GPU technology. Nvidia and ATi do it so what is your point? You do have one right? :laugh:

no point whatsoever i'm just tired of waiting on a GPU that probably isn't going to be an improvement
