NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 Fermi Video Card.That's right! As you should be all be aware of (it's been advertised for weeks & weeks) today was the official unveiling of NVIDIA's brand new high-end DirectX 11 graphics cards, the GeForce GTX 470 and GTX 480. This is almost certainly the most important product launch of 2010, so owe it to yourself to check out some of these reviews:
---In summary: The GTX 480 is faster than the HD 5870 pretty much across the board, but it uses a fair bit more power too. The GTX 480 is slower than the HD 5970 in most instances, but it uses a fair bit less power and the 5970 is a dual GPU, no one expects a current gen single GPU to beat a current gen dual GPU. It was allways the 480 vs the 5870. The GTX 470 offers a respectable performance increase over the HD 5850, sometimes even surpassing the HD 5870 depending on the game and resolution.
Those who want to buy either card will have to wait untill April 12th. Price-wise you are at $500 for the GTX 480 and $350 for the GTX 470.
