Nvidia is all set to scale a landmark. But then, will AMD let such a thing happen effortlessly? Plans going on as anticipated has brought Nvidia on road to unveiling the much its first DirectX 11-supporting graphics cards GeForce GTX 480 and GTX 470. By racing towards a launch date, it is also seen that Nvidia might have to battle resistance from AMD, which is already lining up a handful of new Cypress-based releases so that it could thwart any attempt at spoiling its play field.

The AMD threat could as well mean that the new GeForce 400 series cards could have a rough launch. It is being said that AMD will let bring to the marketplace its new Radeon HD 5830 on February 25. The unveiling just ahead of CeBIT 2010 will see the company follow up the Radeon HD 5830 with the Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 Edition on March 11th.

Seems like there could be a battle royale on the cards! Nvidia and AMD would in fact fight it out fro prime space in the chip mart with their own new unique innovations.

AMD’s Radeon HD 5830 would come sporting 1280 Stream Processors, a 750 MHz core clock and 1GB of GDDR5 memory @ 4000 MHz, while the Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 Edition will debut as a stock-clocked HD 5870 (with 2GB VRAM). This would have six mini DisplayPort connectors enabling a single card to control six monitors, making it clear that the DVI/HDMI/DisplayPort features would be given the miss.
