GTX 470 replacement is near
already written here that GF104 has eight clusters and 384 shaders in total, but this time we have confirmed some further details.
Nvidia plans to launch a GF104 card with all eight cluster and 384 shaders enabled as long as it sells what’s left of the Geforce GTX 470 cards. The 470 cards are not selling that great but they are still selling, and as soon as they run out, Nvidia will simply announce the new card, let’s calling Geforce GTX 475 for now.
We are quite sure that the card will end up faster than the Geforce GTX 470 based on the GF100 Fermi chip, but at this time we don’t know any exact details.
The new card based on the fully enabled core with 384 shaders is planned and now its just a matter of time before we see it in retail.We expect to see this card by the end of summer, but this is also to be confirmed. Also read
