The GeForce GTX 470 PhysX Edition is a graphics card by NVIDIA that is not released yet. Built on the 40 nm process, and based on the GF100 graphics processor, in its GF100-275-A3 variant, the card supports DirectX 11.0. 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 PhysX Edition to reach the product's target shader count. It features 448 shading units, 56 texture mapping units and 40 ROPs. NVIDIA has placed 1,280 MB GDDR5 memory on the card, which are connected using a 320-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 608 MHz, memory is running at 837 MHz.
We recommend the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 470 PhysX Edition for gaming with highest details at resolutions up to, and including, 1680x1050.
Being a dual-slot card, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 470 PhysX Edition draws power from 1x 6-pin + 1x 8-pin power connectors, with power draw rated at 215 W maximum. Display outputs include: 2x DVI, 1x mini-HDMI. GeForce GTX 470 PhysX Edition is connected to the rest of the system using a PCIe 2.0 x16 interface.
