GeForce GTX 480 

Released April, 2010
  • 726 MHz
  • 1.5 GB GDDR5
6.9 Out of 10

Please also note that this cooler uses a direct touch heatpipe design that we have first seen on CPU coolers.

board power of the card is 250 W - our readings say more like 320 W. Either way, a dual 6-pin design wouldn't be possible as that design is specified for only 225 W maximum power draw.

Reviews Word on the street for the GeForce GTX 480


8.4
Our card came without bundle, but we hear that AIBs will be including Mini-HDMI to HDMI adapters, DVI to HDMI adapters and software like NVIDIA's Rocket Sled Demo or Car Garage.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Power

Mar 29: NVIDIA just sent in a statement regarding the power consumption:"NVIDIA lists the TDP as 250 Watt.
by techPowerUp! (Mar, 2010)
In all scenarios, except maximum power, the card draws considerably less power than the reference design GTX 480, despite running at higher GPU voltage.
by techPowerUp! (Oct, 2010)
This configuration is specified up to 450W power draw.
by techPowerUp! (Oct, 2010)

Performance

Edition offers a solid performance improvement over NVIDIA's reference design.
by techPowerUp! (May, 2010)
You may combine two or three cards into SLI configurations for increased performance or image quality settings.
by techPowerUp! (Mar, 2010)
You may combine up to four GTX 480 cards in SLI for added performance or improved image quality settings.
by techPowerUp! (May, 2010)

Applications

GeForce GTX 480 SLI makes the ropewalk even tighter, where a $1000 graphics solution that draws the power of three office PCs by itself, meets awe-inspiring levels of performance.
by techPowerUp! (Apr, 2010)
This value is the maximum value measured during PC gaming.
by techPowerUp! (Mar, 2010)
CUDA helps speed up video encoding, image fixing, among other media acceleration features, and that is a nice addition.
by techPowerUp! (Mar, 2010)

Gaming

It's a pleasant 22 degrees this time of the year being Spring, but the GTX 480 still scores a scorching 96 degrees Celsius on typical gaming load.
by techPowerUp! (Mar, 2010)
In this review we will take a look at a dual-card GeForce GTX 480 setup which should provide enough power for all games at any resolution and detail level.
by techPowerUp! (Apr, 2010)
As normal user who just wants to run games, there seem to be better alternatives out there.
by techPowerUp! (Oct, 2010)

Memory

Desktop clocks are not a typo, based on all data we have, these are the clock speeds the card is running.
by techPowerUp! (Mar, 2010)
At this time the PCB design remains unchanged, but ZOTAC has increased the clock speeds to 756 MHz GPU and 950 MHz memory.
by techPowerUp! (May, 2010)
This is the first time that NVIDIA is using GDDR5 memory on a high-end card, while ATI has been using GDDR5 for years now.
