Geforce „475“ is GF114 based

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Aims for GTX 560 brand
Only yesterday we wrote about the „475“ card and now we can tell you that most likely this card comes with a Geforce GTX 5x0 name. You can read it here. Nvidia has self-leaked Geforce GTX 580 in the high end and this card is based on GT110 chip, the successor and improved version of the original Fermi.

The „475“card is codenamed GT114 and it is likely to become the new Geforce GTX 560. Nvidia believes that their new cards deserve GTX 5x0 names, and this is what is supposed to happen.

This chip will put much more pressure on Barts based Radeon HD 6870 and 6850, but we are not certain when Nvidia plans launch its GF114 based parts. This launch could happen this year, or early next year, and it is clearly a management decision, as the chips are ready.

It all comes down to the current fight with Barts. If the price cut of GTX 460 and GTX470 doesn’t help and AMD manages to make and sell enough Radeon HD 6870 and 6850 cards, we can bet that GTX 560 will appear later this year.

At this time, this is something that Nvidia has to figure out on its own.

Nvidia HAS to bring this new card as soon as possible!

475 doesn't sell. Zero. Nada. Nothing. Quite understandable because it really IS high priced AND crappy.

470 and 480 account for maybe 0,5% of all graphic card sales.

460 - surprisingly! - sells not too good either. Surprisingly, because it really is a good card for the money.

I would like to see Fermi go for a die shrink to 28nm, then maybe it will hopefully shine without the heat loads and excessive power draw! Perhaps then Nvidia can produce a monstrous dual GPU card without the heat and power draw issues! This GTX 580 is what Fermi was meant to be, 512 CUDA, 16SM!

So true!

Nvidia should just take the silicon wasted on all those 465, 470 and 480 rubbish - melt it, and make lots of 580 :D

How naive! If the chips were already ready nvidia would have launched them the same time with 6870.

GTX 560? Wtf?

The way Nvidia and AMD are advancing series naming, they will run out of numbers.

IMO this was a bad launch plan by AMD.

You know why Nvidia isn't releasing a GTX560 right now? Because AMD was stupid enough to release a card slower than a GTX470. Hell its slower than a vast majority of GTX460 OC models.

AMD just let Nvidia steal their launch thunder completely with a $260 price point on the GTX470 which some sites have moved down into the 6870s range or lower with rebates. Now they get to move products that were sitting; generating revenue they weren't getting at all.

So it will be the second change branding campaign ? 4xx will be throw as 5xx. Like the other time...

no it isn't fool, it isn't 512, nor is it a GF100 refresh

You seem to know everything, so what is the CUDA core count if it's not 512? Children not need for name calling, aren't we all mature enough here? Geez

people freaking out about the amd 6000 naming change should be even more pissed off at nvidias 500 naming change......
