NVIDIA’s Fermi-Based GeForce GPU Name Confirmed

According to our reliable source, NVIDIA’s first Fermi-based GeForce graphics cards will make their debut late in March in the name of GeForce GTX 480 and GeForce GTX 470, instead of GTX 380 and GTX 360 that we believed.

We don’t know yet about the frequencies, and it remains to be seen if they’re going to replace the current GTX295 and GTX285. The only thing for sure is they will be anything but cheap, considering the expensive cost.

It’s a bit confusing that the company skips the branding of GTX3xx – perhaps they want to leave it for the mainstream Fermi products? Stay tuned for more information at Expreview.

    nah. they’ll come out as 360 and 380 and then in a year they’ll rebrand them as 480 and 470.

    I guess the question begging an answer would be: What is 460?

    I would think 450 would be the 1/2 part, 256sp and 256-bit, but I could be wrong.

    Could they be releasing a 384sp part with one whole Gaming Processing Core (Damn you marketing!) disabled?

    It would be interesting to see a 384sp part competing with the 5850. Certainly wouldn’t rule it out either.

    That would sure be an interesting couple of battles to watch if true:

    5830 vs. GF104?
    5850 vs. GTX460?

    We shall see.

    Please, pay attention!

    You won’t see or be able to get one single Fermi card until June/2010!

    Cut the crap! And show everybody the card!

    Wow,
    That’s a new low even for Nvidia, re-branding a card name even before the original named card was ever released.
