Holy crap.

lmao @ the reviews....

yea i think it will end up @ 900. this means the 5870 might drop in price a bit, also the x2 version as well.

And the performance of the gtx480 has to be at least double of a single 5870 to make that price of $900.

Good news is that i will be going ATi this time as well, only thing that will change my mind to go for the GTX480 will be the performance justify the cost.

Price for preorder is high but I think the launch price for GTX 480 will be $599 MSRP and $499 MSRP for GTX 470.

The only problem with that fact is that the top-end Fermi chip employs a 384-bit bus, while the GTX 470 employs a 320-bit bus, an identical configuration to the G80 GPU and its two launch products, GeForce 8800GTX and 8800GTS. As such, neither GTX 470 nor GTX 480 cannot facilitate a 2GB quantity of memory. It has to be either 1920MB or 2304MB in order to jive with this requirement. Either the distributor is dead wrong, or the retailer has not been informed of the correct specifications.

Either way, this is a fishy looking listing. Not to mention the price. SabrePC lists the price of this card at a hefty $699 USD with a "discount" of $20 to $679. What a steal. Currently, we nor anybody else really know the pricing of such a card... given that nVidia hasn't finalized the prices. We know that the prices will be firmed this week, as the production batch of boards with the changed PCB and heatsink will leave Flextronics and head to nVidia AIB's in order for the March 15th sampling deadline and the subsequent launch on Saturday, March 27th with the reviews and availability being released on the 29th.

This whole pre-order story looks like one of the distributors has indicated to their resellers like Sabre PC that they will be sold for $700, then things might not look so bright for those looking to get their paws on a GTX 480 card. If the price of $699 stands, that will confirm that the yields of the parts are in dire straits indeed.

They got the framebuffer size wrong, but I'm sure, they're right about the price

I dunno. To me it just seems a good way to get a lot of people on the site. It's too early for pre-orders, especially without knowing the specs. Smells like BS to me.

http://www.shanebaxtor.com/2010/02/2...u-requirement/

Price : $299
"Which means from a price stand point it’s going to compete directly against that model (HD5850), no doubt NVIDIA will be aiming the performance of the model more around the HD 5870 area though."

Very interesting

Btw, that SabrePc site appears to be fake according to some of my sources.

On the other hand, that seems too cheap, but I guess it depends how capable the card is. Hope it's right, tho

That seems too good to be true. I was expecting something more like $359-399 for GTX 470 and $499-549 for GTX 480.

$299 for GTX 470, that's as fast as HD 5870 and faster with tesselation, hmmm, would love to see that, just because of Charlie and his worshipers

I guess cleaning crews would be really busy with all the
