The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 400 Tech Report

After floundering against ATI's formidable Radeon HD 4000 series and getting upstaged by their rival's Radeon HD 5000 series, NVIDIA is back in the fight again with their new GeForce GTX 400 series of graphics cards! Let's take a look at why NVIDIA thinks they finally have a GPU capable of wresting the performance crown from ATI.

At the forefront of their counterattack is the new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480. Based on the new GF100 (Fermi) GPU, NVIDIA claims the GeForce GTX 480 is up to 3.5x faster than the GeForce GTX 285!

To be more accurate, the GeForce GTX 480 is roughly 50% to 100% faster than the GeForce GTX 285 in DirectX games. It is also up to 2.5x faster in PhysX calculations and up to 3.5x faster in ray tracing operations. With this kind of processing power, the GeForce GTX 480 will have no problem tackling 8x anti-aliasing or better.
