Default GTS450s at newegg, go get'em!

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...D=3332167&SID=

I...errrr....MIGHT...know something about these cards....ummmm....

Yep, I'm thinking two of them might be a pretty powerful budget set up. It is just a hunch I have......

Dang that's cheap... really making me question that recent purchase of a 5770. Need to look up reviews on 'em...

No reviews as yet, another hunch I have says NDA has not expired.

Check out the range of core speeds- from 780-880MHz. It would appear these little beauties have some OCing potential.

Now, as the Fermi based cards have been getting monster 90% SLi scaling, anyone else think that $270 spent here may well blow away any $270 spent on a single card? Looks to me like we have the new "bang for buck" enthusiast rig.

I also have a hunch- that you are under NDA.

won't hurt to ask though- will a single 5770 outpace the GTS450? Simple yes or no answer.

No over clocking, no SLi or CrossFire... single card only.

Dang!

Well, so far I'm very pleased with the 5770.

Can you say when the NDA will be lifted? I mean, if I can buy a card now, what's to stop me from blabbing all over what performance I'm getting?

I can say, and the answer is no, your 5770 is faster. Slides have been leaked from china, NV is placing the 450 against the 5750 because it doesn't beat the 5770. Considering the 5770 is the same price as the 450 and the 5750 is cheaper, I'm not sure what the plan is, other than marketing BS.

Default Re: GTS450s at newegg, go get'em!

interesting... they do seem to run kind cheap huh. Still I don't think I would run out and buy 2 for sli. Sli is quite unreliable in performance gains.. and usualy dosn't exceed a %60 increase. It's like SLI'ing 2 8300 gts cards so you could have the power of an 8600. ^^

It would be nice if they could poot one of these out at the $99 level for that family computer thats capable of running all your fav MMOs and online games.

So do the very reliable "leaked slides from China" take into account the wide range of clock speeds on these parts NP?

Or DX11 performance?

Superior SLi scaling?

Just asking.

For what it's worth, GTX 465 and 460 SLI scaling averages 90-99% for today's popular titles.
