Gainward GTX 470 tested

Written by Sanjin Rados


Review: Reference all the way

The GTX 480 and GTX 470 are Nvidia's first DirectX 11 graphics cards and at last, now they are widely available. Gainward, one of the leading Nvidia-exclusive partners, obviously means business. Apart from the GTX 480 and GTX 470 reference cards, Gainward is among the first partners to launch a non-reference card dubbed the GTX 470 GOOD. We’ve talket about the GTX 480 here, and today it’s time for the standard GTX 470. This graphics card is currently available in EU at around €320, here.

Gainward GTX 470 comes with reference clocks, meaning the GPU runs at 607MHz, the shaders at 1215MHz and the memory at 837MHz (3348MHz effectively).

GTX 470 and GTX 480 are aimed at high end market, and both belong to Nvidia’s only DX11 supporting Geforce series – GTX 400. These cards compete with AMD’s HD 5800, and come based on the GF100, which is the fastest, largest and hottest GPU from Fermi family.
