Several online sources (many of which are easily found), a few retailers I have visited and spoke to top level staff (Microcenter, Best Buy, J&R, etc...), various e-mails to online retailers/partners (Newegg, PNY, BFG, a few others) and two NVIDIA staff members members I have contact with (no don't ask me for their contact info). Yeah, I've been busy LOL.

VR has changed their leaked stats.

Quote:
GeForce GTX 480 : 480 SP, 700/1401/1848MHz core/shader/mem, 384-bit, 1536MB, 295W TDP, US$499

GeForce GTX 470 : 448 SP, 607/1215/1674MHz core/shader/mem, 320-bit, 1280MB, 225W TDP, US$349

* Sorry, it should be 480 SP. My source got a little mixed up. Updated with final clocks too.

Let me double check on that cause now that you point it out it does seem a little odd.

Wait, i just got his in an email from club SLI:

"If you haven’t heard, NVIDIA will be officially launching the GF100 graphics cards at PAX East 2010. We’d like to take this opportunity to get together with some of our biggest fans……the members of Club SLI. Here’s your chance to meet some of your fellow Club SLI members as well as some of the folks from NVIDIA.

If you are attending PAX East and would like to take part in this get together, please fill out the form at the link below. We ask that you do this no later than 5pm PST on Tuesday March 23rd 2010. We want to get an idea of who’s coming so we can nail down some final details. Just a reminder, you must be attending the PAX East event to be part of the get together."

IS it actually going to be released then? or just annouced, and then relaesed later making us wait really long.

I'm not sure if microcenter will even carry the gtx480 since the highest card we have are the 5850 and we get shipments of 2 every 2-3 weeks and they sell out instantly. But who knows, hopefully I can grab one/two if they do ship it to us.

thanks for Eyes' we appreciate your work looking into this.

Now I have about $500 saved for a new card, hopefully the 480 isn't to hot, if so I'll snag a 470 and a second later on and have the second best like I did with the 260's and get 2 of em.. They seem so old but they aren't.. lol

Here's to hoping I can get my order in asap!
