GeForce GTX 470 & 480 review

Similar to the GTX 480 on the next page, you will see two dual-link DVI connectors supporting all high-resolution monitors and all the way to the left you can see a mini HDMI connector. Mini HDMI was chosen to be able to position the connector at the lower half, so that the top half can exhaust hot air. You will need a special HDMI cable due to this.
No more S/PDIF cables btw, audio is now routed over the PCIe bus allowing native audio over the HDMI connector thanks to an updated video processor inside the GPU (VP4). We'll have a chat about VP4 later on.
The GTX 470 needs only two 6-pin PCIe PEG connectors, and power supply wise you are looking at an average 550W PSU.
And as you can observe in the upper left corner, two SLI fingers allowing up-to 3-way SLI as well. At roughly 300~350 USD, this probably will be the most interesting card for the most of you with a price hovering inbetween 300 and 350 USD. But let's have a look at some sheer muscle power -- the GeForce GTX 480.
In this article we review the ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU Mini edition, a compact performance graphics card designed primarily for small form factor PCs with mini ITX motherboards. The dual-slot card measures just 17cm and features the NVIDIA GTX 670 GPU. ASUS has re-engineered the DirectCU cooler to fit small form factor cases. While shorter, it introduces a copper vapor chamber placed directly on top of the GPU for faster heat spreading and dispersal with 20% lower temperatures than reference GTX 670.
MSI GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST OC review
In this article we review the MSI GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST OC edition review with that OC for a factory tweak. The product is customized with a new PCB, cooling and a few tweaks, it has 2GB of memory with both that memory and the core base-clock slightly overclocked. Overall an interesting product at an interesting price in the lower segment of the mainstream market.
