GeForce GTX 480, GTX 470 Prices, Details Leaked?

Website VR-Zone claims to have received what are supposedly the final specifications for the upcoming Nvidia GeForce GTX 480 and GTX 470 GPUs.

The site lists the following information:

GeForce GTX 480 : 480 SP, 700/1401/1848MHz core/shader/mem, 384-bit, 1536MB, 295W TDP, US$499

GeForce GTX 470 : 448 SP, 607/1215/1674MHz core/shader/mem, 320-bit, 1280MB, 225W TDP, US$349

Internal benchmarks reveal that GeForce GTX 470 is some 5-10% faster than Radeon HD 5850 and similiar for GeForce GTX 480 over the Radeon HD 5870. Interestingly, the TDP of GeForce GTX 480 is almost similar to Radeon HD 5970 which is a dual GPU card. Interestingly, our sources revealed that there are indeed plans for dual Fermi cards and the TDP of the card is probably gonna be mind blowing.

UPDATE: Above quoted information has been updated to reflect new information reported by VR-Zone.

Also found on VR-Zone's forums is a picture from Turkish website DonanimHaber of what is purported to be the first Nvidia-made picture of the GeForce GTX 480 card:

Nvidia reminds us once again to stay tuned for the official unveil of the GeForce GTX 480 and GTX 470 on the evening of March 26.

    " GeForce GTX 480 : 512 SP, 384-bit, 295W TDP, US$499

    Internal benchmarks reveal that GeForce GTX 470 is some 5-10% faster than Radeon HD 5850 and similiar [sic] for GeForce GTX 480 over the Radeon HD 5870."

    That is all fail, no one in their right mind would buy a GTX 480 with a TPD of 295w over a 5870 with a TPD of 188w for a 5-10% boost, especially since the GTX 480 wont be clocking very high at those power levels.

    I am taking this with a grain of salt, possibly a wishful one.

    Still just speculation on the performance, believe it when you see it.

    what is funny is that heatsink looks more like a bbq grill. BACONATOR IS GO.

    no mention of the 5970... I wonder if they have a competitor in the pipe or if they're conveniently ignoring it.

    Finally, some actual hard data. The box designs were getting annoying!
