NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 480

The NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 480 is a graphics processor that is ideal for a gaming computer. It is designed to provide users with optimized tessellation performance, a component of Microsoft’s DirectX 11 development platform for PC games. Tessellation takes advantage of the GeForce GTX 480 GPU’s ability to increase the geometric complexity of models and characters for realistic gaming environments. As part of NVIDIA’s Fermi line of consumer products, the GTX 480 is available in mid-April.

Features

The NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 480 supports real-time ray tracing and NVIDIA 3D Vision™ Surround for widescreen, stereoscopic 3D gaming. Designed with an architecture that provides users with optimized gaming performance at maximum resolution and quality settings, the GPU provides users with an increase of 61% speed on 19x12 4xAA/16xAF resolution. It also features NVIDIA® PolyMorph Engine, a scalable geometry processing engine built for DirectX 11 tessellation, which gives detailed game characters and terrain. It also has up to 32x anti-aliasing optimized visual quality; interactive ray tracing for photo-realistic scenes; 3D Vision™ Surround technology that provides stereoscopic 3D sound that spans across three monitors; compatible with NVIDIA 3D Vision wireless active shutter glasses; 3D Vision Surround technology capable of rendering more than 746M pixels/second at full HD 1080p for 5760x1080 gaming experience; software which automatically converts more than 400 games to stereoscopic 3D without the need for special game patches; and gives the users the ability to watch Blu-ray 3D movies, view 3D photographs, or stream 3D content over the Web. The NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 480 also features NVIDIA PhysX® technology that supports dynamic game effects, such as turbulence, fluids and smoke; NVIDIA® GigaThread™ scheduler which allows up to 10-times faster switching between graphics and physics processing, allowing more complex effects to be rendered in real time; CUDA™ architecture for multimedia applications; complete language and API support, including CUDA C/C++, DirectCompute, OpenCL, Java, Python, and Fortran; and full support for GPU computing under Microsoft Windows 7.
