Announcing NVIDIA Fermi GTX 470 and GTX 480

Posted on March 26, 2010 by Jon Bach

NVIDIA Fermi has been a long time in coming, and we are happy to announce the availability of the GTX 470 and GTX 480 with our computers. We expect availability on April 12th, and pre-sales begin today!

Fermi represents a new approach to how to build video cards, which essentially puts the cores and memory on a shared bus with something akin to a network switch linking them, instead of needing a direct link between each piece. They launched today at 4pm PST, so you should see a slew of reviews pop up right now! With Fermi, NVIDIA is pushing the limits of today's tech, so while it has been a tough road getting to launch, we look forward to where this technology will bring them over the coming year.
