GeForce GTX 480, GTX 470 Prices, Details Leaked?

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 139 comments

Web source reveals supposed TDP, SP count, clock speeds and pricing for the upcoming Nvidia "Fermi" graphics cards.

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

    GeForce GTX 470 : 448 SP, 320-bit, 225W TDP, US$349

    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!

    5-10% increase over 5800 performance? That seems completely expected, since it is technology being released 6 months AFTER the 5800 cards. Still though - 600MHz ranges on the clocks?

    I think these new cards will do alot better than what is expected.

    Assuming that everything is right, the 470 will be decent competition for the 5850 and the 480 will be not too decent competition for the 5870 (a bit better then the 295)
    And that's without the ATI price drops and the 5890 to come.

    Why would anyone get a GTX480 over a 5870 and pay a hefty premium to get 5-10% increase in performance? You can get a 5870 for ~410, while the MSRP for a GTX480 would be 499$, but we all know the real price would be 530$+ when it hits the market.

    So why anyone would pay around 110$ more when there clearly is a better option, not to mention future price drops of the 5xxx series due to competition?

    295w tdp! WOW!

    so needless to say there will not be a dual gpu part from nvidia for a looooooooooooong time. . . . . like 1.5 years or more.

    and im thinking a 5870 @ 1ghz gpu and oh 5200mhz mem will take the green boar down with ease.

    well, the card looks awesome for starters. given specs are meh, but we all know nvidia and ati's architecture is so different specs comparison is useless. time and benchmarks will tell....

    I'm I the only one very disappointed with those numbers? and for a while there I though I might regret buying a 5870, nope!

    5-10% faster than a 5870 at 295W TDP? That's the same as the 5970 which i'm sure is much more than 5-10% faster than the GTX 480.

    Just thinking about it, wouldn't it make sense for ATI to lower costs BEFORE nvidia rolls their cards out? Then people will see the price/performance value with lower priced ATI cards VS high priced Nvidia cards. Just a thought...

    Looks like there will be no fermi x2 cards.

    Requiemsallurelol that picture is bs, why would either the 470 or the 480 have only two DVI ports, no HDMI? DISPLAY PORT? i think this is a hoax.


    Mabye no standered Hdmi port, although it has mini HDMI port....

    ATI's cards are more energy efficient and have a better bang for the buck if that information is accurate.

    Nvidia blasts other companies about unfair practices yet it can't even deliver competitive products with an extra six months. Karma.
