Then there's this:


GTX470 is supposedly 25% faster than the GTX285 card,and that the GTX 480 gets close to the HD5970 cards,but also prices:


GTX470 comes in at ~500$.
GTX480 comes in at ~600$.


GTX480 uses as much power as the HD5970 card supposedly(294 watts).

Custom designed HD5970's running at 850/1200 using custom coolers,but this time,having 4GB of GDDR 5 onboard(2GB per GPU basically).








Picture of the cooler and the projected increases over the stock HD5970 card.
I bet that card will make the Asus GTX 285 Mars look abundant... and cheap.

I'll just wait for the ATi refresh if thats the case....or the MSI lightning. I'd rather spend the extra money on a Gulftown.

Based on this, the GTX 480 might be positioned just right, not to mention it offers single GPU performance. The GTX 470 seems too expensive for what it is speculated to offer in performance.

Doesn't really mention if it's a limited edition card like the GTX295 MARS was,but the difference between it and the regular HD5970 is the cooler and extra memory as far as i can tell,and i can easily run both my HD5970 cards at those clocks easily,but the stock cooler becomes very noisy then,especially on demanding benchmarks like the unigine heaven demo.


If i was looking to overclock them on a permanent basis,i'd seriously look into water cooling them,and the blocks are already available from koolance...About 140$ a piece though.


The GTX295 MARS sold for about 1500$ a pop,and Asus only made 1000 cards anyhow,though in all fairness Asus had to design a custom PCB for it,since the regular GTX295 used a 448 bit memory bus for each GPU,while the Mars had the full 512 bit bus for each GPU.

At this point,with rumors are going all over the place depending on where you look,and to be honest,it's not the first time that fake information is intentionally leaked to see who can't keep their mouth shut,before a given NDA is officially over,take everything you read with the usual pile of salt.

That won't be a great response to the GTX480 because:
1. 5970s rely on driver profiles ATi has to create. They're usually MIA when games launch.
2. Scaling is variable, so performance with multi GPU cards is a mixed bag.
3. Purists will point to "microstutter" as the factor that prevents them from buying multiGPU
4. Variance in functionality of vsynch and triple buffering with multi GPU

OTOH. it would be nice (although surprising to me) if the GTX480 is as fast as a HD5970. I expect them to be faster than 5870s, but that would be a leap forward in performance beyond any prior. 5970s are very fast cards.

Except in the only game that actually needs the added power of a second GPU.... Crysis.

That would be part of the "scaling is variable" I mentioned.

I don't know that a GTX480 isn't as fast as a 5970, but if it is, that will be EPIC. I don't know if there's ever been that big of a leap forward in GPU tech that I can remember.

If that is the case, no one would have any reason to purchase an ATi card at all.

True, unless the 480/470 has heat issues. That's one of my worries about this card. In that past I've always gone for two of the second fastest cards (8800GTS/GTX260) because they ran cooler and the price/performance ratio was better. I'm hoping the GTX470 is going to continue that trend. If so I'll have two .

wysiwyg; no idea yet. Well, I don't, others might . I'm hoping same or slightly faster. Might be asking a bit much there tho.
