I'm in love with those PC-Q07s - if only I could find a DDR3/775 mITX board.
Yesss...germany based Heise.de has just a bit more info, but not a lot.
Read if you know more German than "ich-bin-ein-bit-techer"
Heise Fermi article
They received Benchmark values for the GTX 470
Bios set to:
Shader Core 1255Mhz
GDDR5 (read-write-clock) 1600Mhz
3D Mark Vantage (X-Mode)
GTX 470 7511 points
HD5870 8730 points
HD5850 6430 points
GTX 285 6002 points
3D Mark Vantage (Performance mode)
GTX 470 17156 points
HD5870 17303 points
HD5850 14300 points
Unigine benchmark 4x AA
GTX 470 29fps
Unigine benchmark 8x AA
GTX 470 20fps
I don't know what benchmarks these are (never heared of unigine before) but I'm sure you do.
Good find Xir
Liking the look of the new Antec cases in a slightly unusual OTT way.
Antec discovers fugly - which of course they are allowed to do when they are already at the top of their game...
So i guess they are going to have to price these at around £275 since it performs between a 5850 and a 5870 as that would be between the prices of those two cards
2.5" hot-swap SSD bay in the top? Why not just put a sticker on it that says "STEAL ME" ?
Nice work Antec!
tweakers.net is not "Scanadanavian (sic)" but Dutch!
Top of the antec bit, says "Reed" instead of Red.
I am not really too excited about any of the stuff, I don't even think I like computers any more
The 5970 Ares has 4GB of GDDR5 in total just for reference.
Only 2GB effective though so you are both correct (just depends on how you read it - although I agree the article aludes to the fact the card is only 2GB).
Those Antec cases are fugly.
If those Fermi 470 results are anything to go by it will be interesting to see what the 480 can do, but until we get some real world benchmarks here on bit-tech my money will be staying with me.
I did have my eye on the Radeon 5850 since it would only just fit in to my Antec Fusion case and I hope nvidia's offering sports shorter cards or I'll be limited in my upgrade options or will have to wait for one of their board partners to do a custom board and then have to pay a premium for the privilege.
Oh well, c'est la ve
IF those GTX 470 benchmarks are accurate, then their not good at all given the huge delay for them.
I was expecting something much much better , not something that is bettered by a card that isn't even ATI's fastest, makes me glad I brought a 5850 now and save the extra £200+ pounds that it will no doubt be.
darn it I was trying to get people interested in my case design the meccase (like mechano for cases) but no one was biteing.... now antec release one - though not as cute as what I had in mind...
Well my guess (guess have to emphasize that) the GTX 470 is put against the HD5850, and the GTX 480 is put against the HD5870.
If that's the case, than the performance figures for the GTX 470 are okay (but only so)
My second guess is Nvidia will want to get the performance crown back, so the GTX480 will (barely) beat the HD5870.
I was hoping for something ....more impressive though.
I agree, if they are correct and nVidia can't eek a ton more performance out of those cards with some driver updates, then nVidia hasn't just dropped the ball, they dug a six foot deep hole, dropped the ball in and buried it.
The thing is those figures (which semiaccurate et al have had since Tuesday) are just bench mark tests and not real world useage. But given they only just look semi respectable and with no price tag against which to judge value, after a six month delay, they actually look pretty awful!
Cue Nvidia fanboi rage!
Given Nvidia's past launches, we expect the *proper* driver to drop about 3 days before release. If we're unlucky, 12 hours (it's happened before) :/
Looks like by the tone of some of these posts that a few ATi butts are already twitching! Whats up girls, gonna have nothing to say come 26th March?
