GeForce GTX 480 Gets Listed
An online PC hardware store, SabrePC.com, has listed a graphics card based on NVIDIA’s upcoming DirectX 11 compliant GeForce GTX 480 GPU. And the price: $699 before a $20 rebate. The listing is of a graphics card by NVIDIA partner XFX.
The specifications known at this point in time are that the GeForce GTX 480 is based on NVIDIA’s GF100 graphics processor. It is DirectX 11 compliant, and has 512 shader units (dubbed CUDA cores), a 384-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, and multiple tessellation units. NVIDIA is expected to announce the card along with a cheaper variant, the GeForce GTX 470, later this quarter. By early Q2, the company expects healthy inventories.
