Gainward - GeForce GTX 480/GTX 470 GDDR5

Gainward - GeForce GTX 480/GTX 470 GDDR5

 

Taipei, March 26th, 2010

 

Gainward GeForce GTX 480 1536MB GDDR5

 

"THIS IS IT!" Long anticipated Gainward flagship finally unveils its mask. Massive die-cast alludes its potent power lying beneath it. The GeForce GTX 480 - a tribute to world enthusiastic PC gamers, thrust by revolutionary Fermi-architecture GPU (codename: GF100), with stunning realism thanks to NVIDIA PhysX & CUDA parallel computing engines implanted into gaming graphics. It is technically the world fastest DirectX11 future-proof graphics card, adopting Hollywood-grade rendering techniques - tessellation & ray-tracing, generating too-good-to-be-true geometric realism, pumping level of detail up to film-like Extreme High-Definition (XHD) image quality. What's more, "3D Vision Surround" is now supported with GF100 GPUs in SLI configuration. With wireless shutter glasses, the technology takes 3D gaming to another dimension by delivering near-realistic IMAX illusions across 3 monitors in full stereoscopic 3D. Not only the characters coming live right in front of you and debris from explosions passing by your eyebrows may scare you! The scenes are so immersive, like you've been sucked into the gaming warp. This is the way you reach

 

gaming nirvana! It's simply beyond your senses.

Revolutionary GeForce GTX 480/GTX 470 technologies

 

GF100 GPUs are based on scalable array of Graphics Processing Clusters (GPCs), Streaming Multiprocessors (SMs) and memory controllers. GTX 480 implements six 64bit GDDR5 memory controllers (384bit in total) to facilitate high bandwidth access to the framebuffer, with 480 CUDA cores, organized at 15 SMs of 32 cores each. Each core is a unified processor that executes vertex, pixel, geometry and compute kernels. Operating in revolutionary technologies highlighted below,

 

Microsoft Windows 7 & DirectX 11 supported

 

DirectX 11 arrived with Windows 7, is compatible with older version of DirectX. New features including GPGPU support (DirectCompute), tessellation support, and improved multi-threading support to assist game developers in developing games that better utilize multi-cores processors.

 

NVIDIA PolyMorph Engine: The Gold Standard in tessellation

 

With the PolyMorph Engine, GTX 480/470 implements the world's first scalable geometry pipeline with up to 15 (14 for GTX 470) individual tessellation engines on a single GPU.

Note: Tessellation rendering technique boosts level of detail by tessellating millions of triangles shown in wire-frame mode.

 

32X Anti-Aliasing: Faster and the highest image quality

 

GTX 480/470 implements a brand new 32x anti-aliasing mode for the highest level of image quality.

 

Real Time PhysX

 

The GTX 480/470 compute architecture was designed to take NVIDIA PhysX technology to the next level - making games more lifelike than ever before with advanced effects such as turbulence and fluid dynamics.

 

Dynamic Cinematic Effects

 

The next generation CUDA architecture accelerates advanced gaming effects for crisper, more realistic visuals. Effects like motion blur, soft shadows, transparency, and depth of field are performed with incredible speed through full Microsoft DirectCompute support and atomic operations that execute up to 20 times faster than prior generation GPUs.

 

Interactive Ray Tracing: The future of gaming

 

GTX 480/470 brings interactive ray tracing to the consumer market for the first time, providing a glimpse into the future of visual realism in games.

 

Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics

 

GTX 480/470 is the first GPU to deliver the performance required for high fidelity fluid simulation, and together with an improved SPH solver to incorporate high quality SPH fluid throughout game environments.

 

3D Vision Surround
