Company's first Fermi-based GPUs
NVIDIA will officially launch the GeForce GTX480 and GTX470 graphics cards next month at the upcoming PAX East gaming conference, according to a Twitter post. The components are the first to integrate the company's Fermi architecture. The technology is said to improve graphics performance while expanding support for other standards such as OpenCL and PhysX
The GTX470 and GTX480 are believed to offer more shader cores than the current GTX275 and GTX285 components, along with support for DirectX 11 and OpenGL 3. NVIDIA has yet to announce a full set of specs, however.
The official unveiling is slated for March 26th, coinciding with NVIDIA's GeForce LAN event at PAX 2010.
