    Default Colorful's box spills more details on NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 GPU

    http://www.hexus.net/content/item.php?item=22654

    Whilst navigating through the tech-filled halls at CeBIT 2010, keen to spot NVIDIA's next-generation graphics architecture, we were told that board partners would be wheeling in the high-end GTX 480 card in closed PCs, limiting the press' chances of getting hands-on with the GPU that's due to launch on March 26th.

    As the launch draws near, NVIDIA's partners are busy readying retail boxes.

    One such partner - and we confess that the name hadn't crossed our radar too many times before - is Colorful.

    NVIDIA remains tight-lipped over the card's specifications, but we can confirm from the box that it will have 1,536MB of GDDR5 memory.

    The rear outputs will comprise of twin dual-link DVI-I connectors and a mini-HDMI port (v1.3a). No provision for DisplayPort, then?

    The power requirements are such that it needs more juice than twin 6-pin plugs can supply, and the setup is the same as a Radeon HD 5970's.

    A chunky PSU is recommended, pitching in at 600W - 42A on the 12V line - for a single-GPU system. Add at least 250W for a second card.

    Now all we need is a card to test NVIDIA's claims of upcoming high-end graphics hegemony.

    600w minimum PSU requirements is a steep requirement

    I never thought 1000 watt PSUs were necessary until now..

    I never understood why companies like this don't invest just a little amount of funding on a translator to their audience's language. It must be tiny in comparison to their production costs, heck, I'd do it for a free card.
