GTS 450 comes out to play

Written by Fudzilla staff


What a difference a year makes
Nvidia has officially launched its third DirectX 11 card, the GTS 450 based on the new GF106 core.

We will post our review shortly, but it’s clear that the GTS 450 can match ATI’s HD5770. However, the HD5770 launched on October 12 last year, so been on the market for a year and one day. (Uhm, you missed a month. sub.ed.) Clearly, the GTS 450 is just late to the party. Mind you, it’s still a not a bad choice, as it sells for as little as €115 in the European market, so it costs about the same as a 5770.

As you probably already know, the GF106 features 192 cores, 32 texture units and 1GB of memory on a 128-bit bus. The reference clocks are 783MHz/900MHz/1566MHz for the core, memory and shaders. It’s power consumption is rated at 106W which is about the same as an HD5770, rated at 108W.

The GTS 450 also delivers good overclocking performance and several partners are already offering OC versions with core clocks near the 900MHz mark.

Basically it’s a nice effort, but AMD’s 6000 series is just around the corner and Nvidia will face even stiffer competition in the months to come.

Stay tuned for our review.

It is still September guys! :P

As for the card, seems nice enough, especially at 115 euros (linky please). In SLI it kicks butt.

"GTS 450 can match ATI’s HD5770". LOL. It can't even match HD5750. Check Tom's or Techreport.

I'm really more interested in the upcoming GF108. We are going to have to wait 2 more months, though.

This card won't put whole market upside down, but it's good to finally see some competition on side of NVidia. For me, this is first tempting product coming from green team, since GTS 250.
Lets wait and see AMD response.

I guess AMD "responded" enough 11 months ago with 57xx series ;-)

So you say nvidia can't make decent enough launch drivers that would harness the card's potential? I thought the polished drivers were nvidias speciality. Current results/reviews are here to stay and its too bad for nvidia if they provided less than good drivers.
