The launch of NVIDIA's DirectX 11 capable GeForce GTX 400 series is drawing every closer, so it was perhaps inevitable that we'd see some leaked presentation slides floating around sooner or later. That time has now come, courtesy of Turkish web site Donanimhaber, supposedly laying bare the specifications of the GeForce GTX 480 for all to see.
The slides don't provide as much details as we'd like, but they do give us the first image of NVIDIA's reference design - complete with protruding heatpipes.
The brief spec sheet confirms that 1,536MB of GDDR5 memory will be on board, connected via a 384-bit interface, and that the card will consume anything up to 300W of power.
Measuring around 267mm in length, the card sports both six-pin and eight-pin power connectors, and will feature dual-link DVI and mini-HDMI outputs.
HEXUS has posted up the slides in question. Meanwhile, VR-Zone also claims to have a scoop on specifications for both the GeForce GTX 470 and 480, along with recommended pricing details:
GeForce GTX 480 : 480 SP, 700/1401/1848MHz core/shader/mem, 384-bit, 1536MB, 295W TDP, US$499
GeForce GTX 470 : 448 SP, 607/1215/1674MHz core/shader/mem, 320-bit, 1280MB, 225W TDP, US$349
