GT/GTS/GTX 4XX Mainstream
 
What kind of facts do we have on this so far?



128, 192, 256, 384 bit memory interface?

Core and memory speed?

Stream processors/CUDA cores?

Performance relative to HD 4770/4850/4870/5750/5770/5850?

Re: GT/GTS/GTX 4XX Mainstream
 
Nothing as far as I know. Just that they will be available in Q2.

Nvidia GF104 details tip up

GTS 450, 440 and 430 in the works

The guys at 3dceter.org managed to dig up some rather interesting info on Nvidia's upcoming GF104. Nvidia will launch the GF100 card in less than 12 hours, but it will be a couple months before we see Fermi-based mainstream and entry level cards.

According to 3dcenter, the performance GF104 core will feature 256 shader cores, 64 TMUs, 32 ROPs and it will utilize a 256-bit memory bus. The chip should appear in three cards, although we're not sure about their designation. The purported GTS 450 should end up slightly faster than the HD 5830, but it will probably cost a bit more as well, probably somewhere in the €200 to €230 range. The GTS 440 should end up around 20 percent slower than the GTS 450 and it will cost between €160 and €180. It is expected to outperform AMD's HD 5770.

The third card, apparently branded GTS 430, will pack 192 shader cores, 48 TMUs, 24 ROPs and a 192-bit memory bus. It should match the HD 5770 in terms of performance and it will cost between €130 and €150.

Mainstream and entry level versions, based on GF106 and GF108 cores, should follow soon. GF106 cards will sell between €60 and €100, depending on the SKU, while the GF108 will take care of the entry level market in the €30 to €40 price range.

However, bear in mind that these cars should launch in June at the earliest. The specs and brands could still change, so we caution you to take them with a grain of salt.

Mainstream Fermi should come by June

You never know with Nvidia and time

The Fermi architecture was always destined to bring more than just one big 512 (480/ 448) shader chip and since the architecture is quite flexible it should not take that long before you see the chip that has for example, 256 shader cores or 128 cores. These numbers are pure assumption at this point, but mainstream and entry level Fermi derivatives, including a mobile chip, are in the pipe.

Last time we talked to our well informed sources we learned that cheaper version of Fermi architecture should be coming this summer, most likely June, but since Nvidia keeps slipping its schedule it might happen even at later date. One can only hope that Q3 2010 will be the latest launch deadline, in case if they don't make it in June.

Let’s hope that Nvidia can address TDP issue that exist with its soon to launch Geforce GTX 480 and GTX 470, but again ATI has been shipping its 57x0, 56x0 and 54x0 generation mainstream and entry level cards for a while now.

What a Fail. I see no sense in this mainstrem because 470 sometimes gets his ass kicked by 5850 and 450 wil be much slower than 470 what means they will be also slower than 5850 and €200 is not a good price. For €240 I can get HD 5850 N O W!

Um, the idea of mainstream is like the middle ground for people who don't have loads of money? How does that make no sense?

Hey, if what he says makes sense to him...

so, the gtx 480 has a 384-bit bus, and the 470 has 320-bit, yet the gtx 285 has a 512-bit bus, and the 8800 GTX has a 384-bit bus. hmmmm.....

The 4xx use GDDR5 though, which runs at twice the speed of GDDR3.

I may be a cheapo for saying this, but the GTS 450 sounds perfect for me. :) Won't break the bank, either! It's the waiting that's gonna kill me.

If you only going for a GTS 450, it's really silly of you not just to take a Radeon 5850 now :confused:

Can you find a 5850 for $200? Not only that, I need CUDA. And finally, once it comes out, everything should be getting even cheaper.
