Hope this makes some people feel better

Bias fan boys stay away. Just some "alleged" update on the GTX 480/470. Hope its accurate.


However, that speculation is over 9000 times we've heard but that should be the truth.

lol ya I just hope that the closer to release, the more accurate it gets. Before, people were talkin about the 480 being $700 which hopefully is total bull shit.

How is this any different from earlier speculations?


I am a raging homosexual!

500$ is like nothing : 3 (well converted to Norwegian kroner, but do I know Norway right, the price would be like 600-700$ but seen in NOK... )

Apparently the GTX 470 is $350.
If so i guess I'm going to be $350 poorer.

To repost what I said before, since someone edited mine...

I'm disappointed to see the CUDA Core count reduced, I see that as a bit of a failure. On the other hand, the core clock is nice.

I think Nvidia will recover from this pretty fast.

The GTX 480 seems a little overprotected in NZ because the price tag for this (in NZD) is well over $1000, but hopefully that ain't true. When the 5870 came in stock the price tag for it is near $1000, later the store dropped it to somewhere between $800-900.

Even though that might be the situation for the 470/480 I might be well over $300 poorer when they're in stock in any shops.

Btw... holy shit high TDP.... That shit better not be idling at 90c

Waaiting for some reviewes so I can choose between 470 and 480..

Yeah, but look at those heatpipes man! Four 8mm heatpipes! Not to mention that the whole middle exterior of the card is heatsink, so that'll emanate heat like a boss. I don't think temperatures will be an issue as much as freaking power consumption.

Yeah power consumption could be a problem.
Almost 300w, thats a low-mid range pc alone lol

I don't think I'll buy one... I'll wait until the next series, which I think they've been working on since Feb. Just an assumption though.

Not to mention, you'll have an all-in-one heater, not for you since I think it's summer in Norway, but NZ will need it, sorry. :3

You'll save on the heating bill.

But you'll be fucked on the energy bill.

Fuck dat!

I won't be able to run my pc 24/7 if I get one lol

nice picture facebook stalkings real cool im sick of this site cya guys on the new site

wont be able to look at pictures of prawn without taking my pants off



I second that. Nah but seriously, I'm glad the 470 will be the same price as the 5850 (or a few bucks more), just because if I were to choose between the two at identical prices, I would have to go with nvidia, just because I've always used Nv, and have never had good luck with ATI card's working. But thank God, I just bought an 850 Watt PSU.
