512SP? That makes me question the source, everyone else says 480SP on GTX480....

But still, rumours, tidbit's, here and there, taken with the appropriate spices (NaCl), are fun for the whole HWC community, no?
I'm still wondering what's up with the 480SP vs, 512SP thing on the GTX480. And how's that going to play out with the 470 so close? Real performance/TDP/heat/noise/$ numbers etc., and will it play Crysis?
Soon we will know.
i guess something along the lines of a cut down core , like gtx 280 failed>>gtx 260

First the rumours were 512SP, and now most say 480, but by lowering the GTX480's SP count, its performance (in theory) should be closer to the 470. But pricing seems fairly wide between the 480 and 470 so,...?
Just more speculation I know (which some don't seem to like) but I am quite curious and definitely looking forward to the 26th.

Well "sane" people look at price/performance ratio. If you are rich and don't care about money, all you want is the TOP CARD IN THE WORLD. Then sure I guess you can buy a FERMI

Yep. Perhaps you want Eyefinity at a certain resolution or performance level that an ATI card delivers. A well-performing Fermi may push that performance level down to your price-range.

I don't game but I fold, and if the rumoured performance in folding is true, then $500 US will be an acceptable price for the amount of points you will get for that price. That being said, I hope the gaming performance is close to ATIs offerings, in the hopes the price will hold accordingly.

If it's just a post on a forum, why take it personal?

File all this stuff under "Speculation" and put it in a single thread.. It's all the same conversation anyways.

Here's the topics I found on the FIRST page of the rumours sub forum. It's also all the same 10 people having the exact same conversation. Typical forum etiquette is to do a search on a given topic and add to the conversation with your new info.

More problem with Fermi [SA]

we may have a price for the 470 and 480 [bsn*]

again more delay with the Fermi

Final Specs and Prices of Geforce GTX 480 Confirmed?

Nvidia 470 vs ATI 5870?

GTX470/GTX480 pricing is gonna hurt

First PIC of the GTX 480

Pre Order GTX480 ? [BSN]

Possible fermi performance figures [Guru3D]

Nvidia: GF100 (Fermi) to be shown at CES Jan. 2010! [Twitter]
