Yes,especially on 1 gb cards.

If the above Crysis test is real,then 1280 mb vram seems to be enough considering that the average fps is close to the minimum fps.

Also if that stalker test(which generally favours ati cards/5870 destroys previous gen nvidia cards on that one) is real,the gtx 4xx is looking better than i thought.

Stream isn't a competing technology in the GPGPU space by any stretch of the imagination.
Stream support is non existent....just try finding a AVI transcoder that does what you want (for me it's making ipod touch movie conversions) with stream support.....

If they are just going to make 15,000 total for the GTX470 and GTX480 ,Good luck in ever getting one and I look for The price to be real high ,why would nvidia sell them for such a low price if they know they are not going to make very many ,even if the GTX 480 is $800 some nvidia person will pay that much for it just to have it.Really think about it 15,000 cards world wide,they will be almost impossible to find .ATi said back when there cards was'nt that good they were going to focus on the main stream cards and was'nt worrying about haveing the fastest video card.Now that they made a good card starting with the 3800 series and got better with the 4800 series and has a real winner with the 5800 series.I look for nvidia to turn it around after a few bad parts ,at least in power usage and heat,and being a 3 billion transistor card that on paper should have destroy the HD5870 IMO.By next year they may have it turned around or they may not care if they want to focus on smller graphics like phones and note pads.They have money ,they not in the red like ATI was .I went with two HD5870's this time around and I don't understand why people says there drivers suck,I don't like how the CCC is set and never have but I have not had any problems playing games.I really have no more problems with ATI drivers then I did with nvidia drivers.It just that I am used to nvidia control pannel.I know why but nvidia should let you use there card for physX and ATi card as your main card.Intead of makeing them where they want work, unless there is a hack I don't know about.

Where has it been posted they are only making 15,000 470's. I would find that impossible to believe considering all the money they would have pumped into getting Fermi up and running. Not from semi inaccurate I hope.

Well,suposedly,and again this is just a rumor of course,seems there's a B1 revision of Fermi in the works which is the one Nvidia will produce in high volumes in Q2,so it doesn't make sence to make the A3 stepping in large volumes


Now what are the changes in the B1 revision i have no clue,but it's a given that we can assume higher performance compared to the A3 revision(higher clocks perhaps?),since ATI has a refresh lineup coming out soon,and has even EOL'd their current lineup,meaning brands carrying ATI cards,can't order any more of the current ones,only the refresh versions due out in april.

Yah, I would love to know as well.

This just seems an arbitrary number

Nvidia usually has good product availability.

Regardless, it is almost D-day Getting excited.

If you look at the heaven bench nVidia ran in DX11 with the 480 the card never falls below 32FPS the entire time @ 1920x1080. The 5870 dips below 20 at least 5 times. Sometimes we may be talking as low as 15FPS, hard to tell with the chart.

http://www.engadget.com/2010/03/06/n...i-hd-5870-per/

However on the other hand, if you ignore the heaven bench and look at DX11 titles currently out, you'll see something as weak as a 5830 can push them fine @ 1920x1080.

For me it's going to come down to how much faster the 480 is than a 5870 and of course, the asking price.

Sounds good. I just hope I can manage to grab at least one, hopefully two though.
