March 19, 2010, By Radimir Bobev

Computer gaming enthusiasts fans of Nvidia are probably already readying their wallets for the upcoming announcement of the new GTX 480 and GTX 470 video card models. Even though they’re supposed to be announced about a week from now, some details about the two devices were already released.

The GTX 480 will cost $499, and will feature a total of 480 shader processors, a 384-bit interface working with 1.5 GB GDDR5 RAM, and the whole thing will be clocked at 700 MHz, 1.401 MHz, and 1.848 MHz for the core, shaders, and the memory.

The GTX 470, on the other hand, uses 446 processors, somewhat slower clock speeds, and a 320-bit memory interface. This will be the more budget-sensitive model, costing $349, a significant drop from the GTX 480. The cards have pretty good TDPs too, sporting 225W for the lesser model and 295W for the high-end one.

Reviews are bound to flood in very shortly, so you should get a good idea of whether or not the cards are worth the money soon.
