While some pictures similar pictures of the GeForce GTX 480 have already appeared online, this is the first to place it next to ATI's chart-topping Radeon HD 5970 for a comparison.

In terms of putting them head-to-head in a benchmark competition, you'll have to stay tuned for the official unveil coming this Friday evening.

    There is far too much hype behind this launch.

    Does the size really matter? If it fits your case, who cares. Anyone else sick of these little tidbits of news? Save it for the review please.

  • I don't understand - does TH actually read the comments, ever? Every single little "sneak peak" has been met with a steady stream of we-do-not-care. Why do you keep posting this stuff?

    Are you under the impression that a handful of vocal malcontents expressing their "we-do-not-care" attitude despite posting 3-4 pages of comments could really represent the majority of the readership?

    People do care about this; be it bits of gossip or the newest pictures, anything to appease the burning anticipation for the release has been getting massive hits.

    I'm not going to be getting a fermi card but I still thought this was a good tidbit of news because we already know the size of the 5970 so this gives us a good idea of its length, which I was wondering about

    The site belongs to those who own Toms Hardware and they can post whatever they want. I will still come and read their news, and besides....why are people seem so anxious to click on a title of news they "DON'T CARE ABOUT" just to complain when what does it really hurt for Tom's to put up anyway? It drives me insane when people waste their time to complain about something so small an insignificant thinking they are the only person in the world who reads Tom's.

    Looks like it's maybe a tad long than the 5870. Isn't the 5970 about an inch longer than the 5870?

    If the performance is 5 percent better than a 5870 (if the rumors are true) then a 5970 would trounce on the 480. Especially since the cards will most likely be about 500 dollars because of high demand and low stock. I dont see what all the hype is over these cards. In 6 months ATI will hopefully be rolling out 6000 series cards.
