Multiple rumors indicate thab the launch of GeForce GTS 450 is pending, and real soon as well.
From what we've heard in the channel September 13th (on a Monday) this new mid-range product will be released. Though unconfirmed the GF106 GPU empowering this product will have 192 shader processors and as such will be competing with the ATI Radeon HD 5700 series, the Radeon HD 5770 in specific.
Reported clock frequencies seem to be nicely high at 783 MHz on the core, 1577 MHz on the shader processors and 1804 (3600 effective) MHz on the memory, the 1GB DDR5 will run a 128-bit memory bus with a bandwidth of 57.8 MB/s,
If you guys think along with me a little, the original GTX 260 had 192 shader processors but nearly half more bandwidth. It seems though that the high clocks on the GTX 450 will compensate for a lot of performance, indicating roughly GTX 260 performance, yet now with DX11 compatibility, more memory and a FAR better price tag.
The latest rumors (and these really are rumors) suggest that the entry level the GTS 450 cards will retail at only $129, though we find that to be on the very low side. Exciting stuff though.
