GeForce GTX 480M 

Released May, 2010
  • 425 MHz
  • 2 GB GDDR5

These chips are still based on Kepler (600-series), but feature more CUDA cores, more memory, a wider memory bus, and faster clockspeeds.

Efficiency is quite impressive considering the GPU is still based on the 28nm manufacturing process.

Though the Radeon RX 480 was released last month, based on AMD's latest Polaris, we are bringing in our first board partner.
Ed Crisler, NA PR/Marketing Manager for Sapphire will be joining us in studio to talk about the RX 480 and Sapphire's plans for custom cards.

Report: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070M and 1060M Specs Leaked

by Sebastian Peak |
The report comes via BenchLife, with the screenshot of GPU-Z showing the higher CUDA core count (though VideoCardz mentions the TMU count should be 128).
Specifications for the upcoming mobile version of NVIDIA's GTX 1070 GPU may have leaked, and according to the report at this GTX 1070M will have 2048 CUDA cores; 128 more than the desktop version's 1920 cores.
The product name doesn't really have much associated with it, but it does have video RAM and display outputs.
Lastly, ignoring the RX 480 that we already know about, a “RADEON 490” (which an earlier leak by AMD called the RX 490) will be available in just an 8GB version, with one HDMI and three DisplayPorts.
If you asked me right now what I recommend for 1440p and 4K gaming (with 60FPS being the target average FPS), then I would recommend NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1070, which is an amazing card performance/dollar wise.
Wrapping things up, AMD has impressed me with the results here with the Radeon RX 480s in CrossFire - with some of the best performance at $400-$480, and some damn good CrossFire scaling at 1440p and 4K.
