The GeForce GTX 470 X2 was a graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in January 2010. Built on the 40 nm process, and based on the GF100 graphics processor, in its GF100-030-A3 variant, the card supports DirectX 12.0. 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 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 placed 2,048 MB GDDR5 memory on the card, 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.
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.
