Nvidia has Geforce „475“

Written by Fuad Abazovic
geforce

The new one is based on new GF104

We have a few details about Nvidia's new plans that we want to share with you. Recent Geforce GTX 470 price drops have alerted many of Nvidia partners who now believe that the new GF104 chip with more firepower is just around the corner.

The new GF104 has eight Streaming multiprocessors (SM) while the old GF104 had seven. This could very easily be the same GF104 chip with one streaming multiprocessor disabled, as Nvidia simply didn’t need that more power back in July time when it launched Geforce GTX 460 cards. Now, since they might need some more power, they simply enabled the eight SM unit.

Each Streaming Multiprocessor(SM) within GF104/106/108 GPU architecture contains 48 SPs and 8 SFUs. The new card could end up with 384 Stream processors and 32 SFUs. So, the Stream processor number is up by 48.

The texture units are likely to get a boost from 56 to 64. All in all it's an eight Streaming Multiprocessor (SM) part that is likely to easily outperform Geforce GTX 470, but bear in mind that GTX 470 at €200 or below is one hot but great buy. And when we say hot, we mean the GTX 470’s 215W TDP hot.

To understand Geforce 400 architecture better, you can read the Wiki part here.

so there is no informamnion but you love to post that? maybe also some "485" djr full gf100? at least provide ANY sources, please. And i mean at least some quotes or links. Anything

A full Gf104 chip with a 10% clock bump, could turn out to be about 20% faster than the vanilla GTX 460 1GB. This would put it at the same play field as the GTX 470. Not bad, but not too great either. Still, if the price and thermals are good, then it will be good card.

Please God, tell me i can flash the bios of my 460 to a full cluster gf104.

Yeah, God's an AMD fanboy!

If you put a fanboy on a graphic card heat sink would he help cool the card.
Just having a surreal moment :lol:

"just around the corner." So that's next summer in English.

loadwick nvidia would never allow that because you would have a faster product by paying less (making 475 obsolete).
Also note that the worst cluster is disabled to help lowering the voltage to minimize power consumption.
Enabling a 460 cluster should increase power consumption not by just 14% but roughly by 20%. Also bumping up the clocks by 10% increase power consumption at least by 10% (lets say 15%)
So if you could "configure" 460 to perform like an 475 it would consume 35% more power (approximatelly ) that is 217 watts. But then again you would have 20% more performance. On the contrary 475 should have several optimizations to make it more efficient and drop power consumption bellow 200w.

Sounds great. Can't wait to see the price and performance of such a card if they do launch it. Frankly i wouldn't be surprised as such refreshed cards have precedents for both companies(GTX 275, 285, HD4890 etc.).
