Nvidia GeForce GTX 480 Review: Games not ready

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 480 is a little late to the DirectX 11 graphics card, party, as ATI has had one for a while now — so how will this latest GPU fair? One thing is certain, this is a beast and has so much to offer, but we worry that current games are not ready for all the power that the 480 offers.

This new card from Nvidia is based on the Fermi architecture, so what can this video card with its 3 billion transistors and twice the amount of processing units as the previous version offer?

The GTX 480 has clock speeds of 1401MHz and 700MHz on the core, the GDDR5 memory runs at 924MHz. There are four GPU clusters housed in this unit along with 60 Texture units and 15 streaming multiprocessors — so we know that Nvidia mean business.

Overclockers Club thought that this card needed a closer look, which is why they have an extensive review and have even tested it on a few of the best selling games, such as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare2, Far Cry 2, Batman Arkham Asylum and a few more.
