April 2, 2009, 6:06 am
In response to the release of graphic adapter ATI Radeon HD 4890 NVIDIA Corporation today formally announced the withdrawal on the graphics card market NVIDIA GeForce GTX 275, which is positioned as a worthy competitor to this high performance solution from AMD. The new accelerator is built on the base created by 55-nm chip technology GT200b, with 240 stream processors, 80 texture units and 28 units rasterizatsii (ROP). The product uses the PCI Express bus 2. 0 x16, and lowering the temperature of the main hotspots dvuhslotovaya system is active air cooling. The model is equipped with GDDR3 memory with a volume of 896 MB of bandwidth 127 Gb/s and 448-bit interface that operates at a frequency of 1134 MHz, while the frequency rates of graphic core and Shader blocks is 633 MHz and 1404 MHz respectively. New supports DirectX 10. 0 Shader Model 4. 0, is friendly with innovative technology NVIDIA CUDA Technology, NVIDIA PhysX Technology and NVIDIA SLI Technology, fully compatible with the NVIDIA GeForce 3D Vision, and is ready for effective work on Windows 7. Yet it should be pointed out that the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 275 is the level TDP of 219 Watts, while supplementary feeding for a couple of special 6-pin connector (by the way, the ATI Radeon HD 4890, with a maximum load consumed power does not exceed the mark of 190 W). As for the video communication capabilities, they are presented aside on its back cover the two ports of Dual-Link DVI. How to emphasize the developers themselves, their offspring performance ahead of ATI Radeon HD 4890 in many popular 3D-games to 10-35%, and Mirror s Edge nimble competitor already two and a half times ! is curious that in the Folding @ Home a new video card model calculates the winding down of proteins, too, much faster than the above graphic solution from AMD. However, in fairness, I should say that in their test simulation using NVIDIA representatives of ATI Radeon HD 4890, removing to the extent necessary, ATI Radeon HD 4870, so make a final verdict on the real balance of forces between the two rivals so far even sooner. All the above i put only independent testing of the original copies of both products. In conclusion, reported that the recommended price for the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 275 product developers promise sound in the near future, and the massive sales of the product should start April 14 or even earlier.
