The GeForce GTX 470 X2 was a graphics card by NVIDIA, that was never released. Built on the 40 nm process, and based on the GF100 graphics processor, in its GF100-030-A3 variant, the card supports DirectX 12. Even though it supports DirectX 12, the feature level is only 11_0, which can be problematic with newer DirectX 12 titles. The GF100 graphics processor is a large chip with a die area of 529 mm² and 3,100 million transistors. Unlike the fully unlocked GeForce GTX 480 Core 512, which uses the same GPU but has all 512 shaders enabled, NVIDIA has disabled some shading units on the GeForce GTX 470 X2 to reach the product's target shader count. GeForce GTX 470 X2 combines two graphics processors to increase performance. It features 352 shading units, 44 texture mapping units, and 32 ROPs, per GPU. NVIDIA has paired 2,048 MB GDDR5 memory with the GeForce GTX 470 X2, which are connected using a 256-bit memory interface per GPU (each GPU manages 1,024 MB). The GPU is operating at a frequency of 608 MHz, memory is running at 837 MHz (3.3 Gbps effective).
Being a dual-slot card, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 470 X2 draws power from 2x 8-pin power connectors, with power draw rated at 215 W maximum. Display outputs include: 3x DVI. GeForce GTX 470 X2 is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 2.0 x16 interface.

GF100 GPU Notes

GF100 has 4 GPCs each capable of 8 pixels per clock. This limits complete GPU to 32 pixels per clock and because of that it can't feed all 48 ROPs when they all require data at the same time.
Additional ROPs however can be used for MSAA (because it doesn't require additional data from rasterizers, while giving more work to ROPs.)
