The EVGA GeForce GTX 480 is a high-end graphics card released in March, 2010. This card is a step above the GeForce GTX 470, and is designed to compete with the ATI Radeon HD 5870. The GTX 480 features DirectX 11, PhysX and Nvidia 3D Vision Surround technologies. This card is compatible with 2, 3, and 4-way SLI configurations, allowing for a wide range of options when it comes to potential computing power. This GPU’s core clock runs at 700MHz, which is complimented by 480 CUDA cores and 1536MB of GDDR5 memory. The general consensus among expert reviewers indicates the GTX 480 is a faster product than the competition’s HD 5870, however it uses more energy and produces more heat in the process. Video output includes two Dual-Link DVI-I ports and one Mini-HDMI 1.3a connection. Included software includes EVGA’s Precision and OC Scanner tool, which allows users to fine tune and customize their gaming experience.
