Nvidia GeForce GTX 400 Series Graphics Cards

Nvidia’s internal name for the GeForce 400 series architecture is “Fermi”, named for Enrico Fermi the Italian Physicist who was critical in the development of the nuclear reactor. The name is appropriate because this video card series represents the state of the art technology in PC graphics rendering. With 16 Streaming Multiprocessors, each capable of 32 simultaneous single-precision operations, 64k of on-board cache / shared memory and 768k of L2 cache this processor goes beyond the merely impressive to deliver sheer jaw dropping performance. Any serious PC gamer will want to get their hands on one of these cards.

Previously high performance users largely had been using cards using Nvidia’s G80 architecture, like the Tesla series of general purpose GPU’s. Fermi graphics cards represents the next evolution in cutting edge performance and delivers even more power. The 400 series begins a new age in performance video card architecture and what home computer graphics cards are capable of. Available with anywhere from 1GB to 4GB of RAM for each of the GDDR5 controllers, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 400 Series Graphics Cards will offer high performance users up to 6GB total on board memory dedicated to graphics processing Geforce RTX Series wholesale. Nvidia has taken their previous breakthroughs in video processing architecture and used them as a building block to get to the next level with the 400 series.

The 400 series is also the first chip from graphics card guru Nvidia to work with Microsoft’s new DirectX 11. This new system paves the way for a new generations of hyper-realistic games and extreme 3d rendering. Taking lighting and shaders to the next level, the 3 dimensional environments which can be rendered on the fly by Nvidia’s GeForce 400 series are simply breathtaking. Nvidia’s new architecture also includes better support for C++ programming language and Microsoft’s Visual Studio. In brief, this means the architecture is more straightforward for computer programmers to get maximum performance from.

One of the first of the new line of video cards released with this new architecture is the Nvidia GeForce GTX 480. This card offers a core clock speed of 700MHz and a shader clock speed of 1401 MHz, plus 1. 5GB of on board video RAM. This unit, along with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 470, is just the tip of the iceberg for the new architecture. Nvidia has a long history of pushing the envelope with their graphics processing technologies and while cards like the GTX 480 blow away the graphical capabilities of cards that have come before, later models in the GeForce 400 Series will deliver performance even beyond that. More. Better. Faster. That’s what the Nvidia GeForce 400 Series Graphics Cards delivers. The Nvidia GeForce GTX 480 is one of the first of a new generation of video cards based on Nvidia’s new 400 Series “Fermi” architecture. The GeForce 400 Series is the new flagship line of video processors from the leader in PC computer graphics technology. This line of GPU’s is designed with high performance PC enthusiasts and gamers in mind. Nvidia has developed a chip that outperforms everything that’s come before and will leave you breathless.

Using Microsoft’s new DirectX 11 platform, the GeForce GTX 480 Graphics Card can handle incredible geometric model complexity through tesselation, which it is designed to deliver optimized performance for. This means game developers can create extremely detailed and realistic game environments which the GTX 480 can render on the fly. Compelling graphic environments are something game developers have always striven to achieve but limitations in graphics card technology consistently sets the upper boundary on what is possible to do on a home computer. With the release of the GeForce GTX 480 that upper limit has now been pushed significantly higher than it has ever been.

With never before seen features on home PC graphics cards, like Nvidia’s 3d Vision Surround (for fully immersive, widescreen 3 dimensional gaming)and ray tracing in real time, the GTX 480 Graphics Card will take your home computer farther than you ever thought possible. This new paradigm heralds an era of hyper-realism in PC gaming. Traditionally PC gaming has always been a few steps ahead of console systems when it comes to graphics processing but the capabilities of this new line of cards brings the PC capabilities leaps and bounds beyond even what the next generation of consoles is expected to offer.

Stereoscopic gaming has been slowly gaining traction for a number of years now in the PC gaming community, but has always been limited by factors ranging from graphics card capabilities to LCD computer monitor technology. Now all the stars seem to be lining up for 3d gaming to really start to take off. For Nvidia’s part, their new line of GeForce cards is now able to produce stereoscopic 3 dimensional images on the fly that are more complex and real looking than ever before. For perhaps the first time, you will really be able to feel like you are In the game.

The Nvidia GTX 480 performs more than 25% faster on average than any other GPU currently on the market when running any of the newest DirectX 11 apps. The Nvidia Polymorph Engine gives PC gamers the power of a geometry engine that scales and has been specifically designed for DX11 Tessellation. Through and through, this is a graphics card unlike any you’ve seen before and it is bringing the future of PC gaming into the homes of hardcore gamers around the world.
