Nvidia driver lists new cards

Written by


GTX 580, GTS 455 and GT 555M
Let's keep it brief and with as much speculation as possible. Expreview has found several new cards listed in Nvidia's 261.00 driver.

As expected, the GTX 580 is one of them and we're guessing you know by now that it's a high-end board slated to replace the largely unsuccessful GTX 480.

The GTS 455 was first mentioned a few months ago. We don't much about it and although it sounds like an improved GTS 450, which is based on the GF106 core, rumour has it that the GTS 455 is actually based on a somewhat crippled GF104. If this is the case, it might be a rather interesting mainstream card.

The GT 555M is somewhat of a mystery as we've never heard of it up till now. It appears to be based on the GF108 core, but we still can't confirm anything about this upcoming mobile part.

Another PR stunt. nVidia are really nervous about the 6970.

You will not be able to buy any nVidia card faster than then 480 in November and i would be very surprised if you could buy anything at all in 2010.

renaming??? again??? wasnt that enough that g92 shown its face in 5(FIVE!) generations of nvidia cards from 8xxx and 9xxx to 1xx and 2xx and even 3xx..fuuu

LOL either this is a slightly altered architecture meaning it will come out in Q2 2010 OR its a typical Nvidia re-badge, how ridiculous for them to go to 500's just because ATi went to 6000's... Seriously pathetic.

I agree. I think it's kinda sad actually. Just take your time and do it right Nvidia! FFS Re-evolutionize for once instead of rebranding!This kind of milking is worse than what Activision does with the COD series! ROFL! :D I just might stay away from them for along time if they keep this crap up. :-|

If the most recent benchmarks are true, the 6970 will end up only slightly faster than the GTX480.

It will have no chance against the GTX580.

Let's wait 4 more weeks and then let's see ... but my bets are on Nvidia 8)

So 20-30% faster is slighly faster for you.
And you expect 580 to be twice as fast as 480. How many transistors do you think it will have 4.5 billion? It is not possible on 40 nm.

@Tr0y

Not sure where you are getting your numbers from. Every leak i have seen the 6970 is at least 20% faster than 480 and that is with non optimised drivers. And i hear that the most people are hoping from nVidia's "next generation" [LMAO] is about 20% and we all know that AMD will do it cheaper and cooler!

But i am still pretty sure AMD will do the treble, cheaper, cooler and faster!

And that 8 months after the 480 launch. Deja vu.

So this means that Nvidia will win again?

and that they as always have the fastest card on market. :D

and AMD will fail with their bad drivers again :sad:
