    Last week some photo's already showed up on NVIDIAs GeForce GTX 480 with the full 512 Shader processors / 64 Texture memory units. You guys know that at the initial launch one SM shader cluster was...

    More...

    Lol at people who called "fake" on the last news.

    Anyway, I think they'll just name it GTX 480 Core 512 (like the older GTX 260 Core 216). The GTX 485 naming will most probably be reserved for the die shrink (if that ever happens). Knowing nVidia though, they have a tendency to mess up naming schemes so I could be wrong.

    the 480 cuda cores of my GTX480 is plenty tbh besides if the benchmarks above are true then the difference is far too slim so not worth it, it only make sense to people who are upgrading from older generation cards.

    my next upgrade will probably be Fermi 2 or something, in other words a single card that doubles what i currently have... but no SLi or dual gpu, i don't want that anymore. ;)

    Looks cool, but a dual GF104 with a full shader count of 384 each would be way cooler - literally as well as figuratively - lol.

    Too slim an improvement. I'd rather see a 512-core GF104.

    meh they need to pimp up Texture fillrate, >> 42Gtexels/s looks weak.

    that is not huge difference in power, but i willing to bet there will be huge difference in price

    and if it based off the GF100 dont that mean it still gonna produce wait more heat and consume more power then the 102 and 104?

    If you read about Fermi architecture you can see that texture fillrate does not matter due to how efficient it is. Each Texture "unit" 2x as powerful as the previous generation on its own.

    I'm super excited that I bought a 480 S.P card....especially when the 512 one is coming just now, and even more so that a large portion of my upgrade is unseen due to an unnexpected CPU bottleneck...so by the time I remove said bottleneck and get the most of my card...the 512's will not only be out but they will be cheaper than my 480 was...and the only game I was anticipating that would make use of my card in the near future, was delayed until next year. :D :D

    Now i'll go and play more 3 year old RTS games on my 480 to totally convince myself that it was worth the upgrade...

    May just wait till 500 series. But we'll see what the end of the year has in store.

    nVidia is kinda blowing their wad into a sock as of their firing the dude last year. Shoulda kept him and let the good times roll. Instead it seems heartbreak after heartbreak. I may go AMD on the next upgrade. We'll see.

    Those Vantage results are margin of error stuff. If I do ten runs with the same card, I could get similar results.

    Waiting for the 500 series, if that's what it will be called, means waiting at the very least another year. Yet I'm in the same boat as you, I want to upgrade and initially wanted to wait for a 512 SP fermi but I don't think they made any improvements at all heat and power wise and on the other hand I don't want to wait another 6-12 months for the next cards... bleah! :cussing:

    So nvidia is going to make a graphics card now that uses more power and runs even hotter wow ! And for what a 1% gain in performance ? duh !?!?! Only good card nvidia makes right now is the 460

    Yeah, I am waiting for the 580 GTX

    5 is my favorite number.
