    Did everyone bite too soon on the GTX 480? (GTX 485)

    http://www.kitguru.net/components/gr...y-in-the-sack/

    If this is true, it's certainly good news, even for ATI fans, because it means they're gearing up for more comp from the red team.

    Personally, I'm a little let down from both sides. ATI were quick off the mark but I think they could of done a better job, and NV just had nothing for a long time. Field went stale.

    Regardless of the source, take what you read with a pinch of salt. Some of it is just journalist spatter, some just fanboyism, and the rest tends to just be PR exercises. The only true time to get excited about something is when theres hard numbers.

    A GTX485 is inevitable, given that parts of the Fermi core are disabled on all current products except Tesla/Quadro parts (and those are downclocked to compensate). I just think it's too soon for one yet, given they still haven't got the heat and power issues nailed.

    Its a freaking joke. And the picture







    Its from evga's GeForce GTX 470 SuperClocked+ w/ High Flow Bracket and Backplate ....


    Kitguru is a freaking joke, with made up news to steal web traffic.

    Created like 3-4 months ago from someone trying to make some quick bucks from this domain.

    And from so called "article":
    KitGuru has heard that nVidia’s been through the first iteration of the GTX480 with a fine tooth comb, to create a GTX485 product that can run at least 20MHz more on the core clock, with improved cooling and performance. It’s also worked through some neat driver improvements that will also help. Nice.
    Are those guys making those news, stupid or what?


    Pathetic hoax site.

    they never said that picture was the 485, they simply made a joke using the picture.

    Yep, they bit too soon, can't see a reason why people buy one other than benching and bigger e-penis, still on GTX285 and does the job just fine.

    yeah but with fermi you can do so much more!

    ok that was a bit fanboyish

    with fermi you have DX11 and you might just be able to play Metro 2033 at max settings 1920x1200

    The card sucks, DX11 is just a sad excuse to invest in a Fermi right now, end of story.

    The 470 is actually a pretty good card in performance to price. If they can manage the 28nm revision, a GPU in that price range on that die size would be sweet. I'm a bit skeptical Nvidia can pull off 28nm though being as Intel, the best manufacturer at die shrinking, is still only working on 32nm. As for the GTX285, meh, not enough performance at high res on some games IMO and I happen to think DX11 support DOES matter. There's not many DX11 games yet, but now that both camps have DX11 GPUs, it will be very prevalent in AAA titles to come.

    They're getting far more publicity than they ever should.

    so... anyone thing we might be able to flash from the 480 shaders to the 512 soon, or at least when they release a 512 version ?

    I had already assumed that there would be a 512 core card and that's why i have not pulled the trigger on 480 core cards

    If the memory bus is 384-bit same as GTX480, its non-significant. Because the GTX480's bottleneck is memory clock, not core clock. If the GTX485's memory bus is 448-bit or 512-bit, its worth.

    Unless you plan on an extreme LCS, I wouldn't even consider that, esp if you have a brand of card that doesn't use a tier one binned chip.

    The 480s are much too hot to handle 512 without it even if it's possible to do that. The 512 core cards are going to be MUCH better suited to 28nm.

    I don't think so. Heat issue with Fermi is exaggerated. I never saw mine go over 90 while gaming/folding with fan speed controled by AB profile.
    BTW I'm used to heat, can't have top performace products without heat. Now, on water cooling (non-extreme, res - pump - EK - EK-vga - rad - back to res) I never saw it go over 50.
    I would try 512 cores BIOS if I could find.
