Few weeks back Nvidia announced that they are going to launch GTX480 & 470 with company’s next generation CUDA architecture, code named “Fermi”, is the most advanced GPU computing architecture ever built. With over three billion transistors and featuring up to 512 CUDA cores, Fermi delivers supercomputing features and performance at 1/10th the cost and 1/20th the power of traditional CPU-only servers.
The GeForce GTX 480 will be the high end video card using the highest clocked speeds, while the GeForce GTX 470 will be a more affordable card with lower core and memory timings.
According to engadget the price of GTX 480 will be around US$ 499 & GTX470 will be available with much reasonable price of US$349.
Nvidia GTX 480 will have bit interface to 1.5GB of onboard GDDR5 RAM, 480 shader processors, clock speeds of 700MHz core, 1844MHz memory and 1401 shadder. This Fermi graphics card has dual-slot fansink and graphics card has size of 10.5-inches which is as much as GTX 275.
Nvidia GTX470 specs will be 448 stream processors, 1280MB GDDR5 video memory with 320-bit memory bus interface. This card has thermal design power rating of 225W.
