NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 Fermi

techPowerUp!
26 March 2010
  • Summary: The first comparable thing to the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 that comes to the mind are the powerful yet gas-guzzling SUVs that are used for cross-country drives with heavy loads, comfortably. Often stereotyped with fuel-inefficiency, those vehicles don't compromise one bit on performance, space, passenger comfort, loads of accessories, utilities and features. Same is the case with GeForce GTX 480. The card sports solid overall build quality.
  • Pros: Fastest single GPU card to-date, DirectX 11 support, Substantial performance improvements in DirectX 11, GDDR5 memory, Software voltage control seems possible, Native HDMI output, Support for NVIDIA 3D Vision Surround, Support for CUDA, PhysX and 3D Vision, Improvements to integrated HDMI audio device
  • Cons: High power draw, Noisy cooler, High temperatures, Fairly high price, Paper launch, High temperatures and power draw makes SLI and triple SLI difficult, Limited availability, Only 480 shaders, DirectX 11 won't be relevant for quite a while

  • Excerpt: Is the GeForce GTX 480 fashionably late, or just plain late? ATI has been tooting the DirectX 11 horn for quite some time now, while its competitors laboured on a rebuttal.

  • Conclusion: The new fastest single-GPU card - just - but it's too expensive to tempt us from the HD 5870

Nvidia GeForce GTX480 - brza i vruća

PC Ekspert
4 March 2014
  • Conclusion: GF100 u GTX480 kartici je definitivno preuzeo vodstvo kao najmoćniji GPU, a pripada mu i titula najkompleksnijeg. AMD-ov Cypress ovdje ipak mora potpisati kapitulaciju i za sada se povući. Po tome pitanju stvari dakle izgledaju lijepo za Nvidiju. No, GF100 ima i svoju mračniju stranu. Preko 3 milijarde tranzistora smještenih na površini od oko 500 kvadratnih milimetara su kao prvo vrlo skupi a kao drugo gutaju enormne količine električne energije.
  • Pros: Performanse.
  • Cons: Potrošnja, zagrijavanje, buka.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 : DirectX 11 chez NVIDIA

Clubic
16 August 2010
  • Conclusion: À l'heure du bilan, force est de reconnaître que le très attendu GeForce GTX 480 fait le job, et qu'il le fait relativement bien. La nouvelle architecture proposée par NVIDIA semble sur le papier assez intéressante alors que les premiers tests confirment de bonnes prestations d'ensemble. L'arrivée de DirectX 11 est bien entendu salutaire, on l'attendait tout de même chez NVIDIA depuis plus d'un semestre !
  • Pros: Prise en charge DirectX 11, Carte mono GPU la plus rapide
  • Cons: Prix élevé, Chauffe importante, Consommation importante, Ventilation bruyante

Recenze: nVidia GeForce GTX 480 - Uspěje Fermi v souboji s ATI?

GameStar
22 July 2010
  • Summary: Celkově vzato se nám novinka od nVidie zamlouvala. Architektura Fermi má rozhodně co nabídnout, obzvláště pokud jde o AA, či teselaci. Nicméně v určitých případech se zdá být Radeon HD 5870 výhodnější grafickou kartou. Spotřebuje méně energie a většinou je srovnatelně výkonná. Navíc některé nadstandardní funkce, jako možnost připojení třech monitorů současně, u nVidie nenajdete.
