Its cool the GTX 480 is slightly smaller, people with smaller casings can consider this one as an option.


its the 5970 which is compared in this pic, which is a dual gpu solution which is why the large size. the 5870 is comparable to GTX480 in size, hence the rest of the 5xxx series is fine for smaller casings.

yup my case is ATX spec and it still barely fits in a GTX 275. 5xxx series are larger still!

The 480 is a single chip card so it shouldn't be compared to a 5970..
The 5970 is a behemoth and needs a lot of space. I don't see that problem with the 480.

The ATI card is also a dual GPU card. Shouldn't they have put it up against the 5850?

champ214815d ago

they should put it up agaisnt the 5870.

GTX470 should be put up against the 5850.

A dual-chip Fermi card should be released soon after these single chip cards.

I want dx11, but not for 400 bucks lol.

champ214815d ago (Edited 4815d ago )

The GTX480 is rumored to be 500usd

If you must have DX11 and want it at a good price:

5770 150usd

Does 1080p in all games 60fps+

Highend cards these days are an overkill.

joydestroy4815d ago

the gtx 470 is supposed to be $349

dirthurts4815d ago

The 5830 will come down to affordable prices too.
