Product Reviews


"If raw performance is what you want, then the 480 GTX delivers, particularly at high AA and detail settings."

Maximum PC

“The GeForce GTX 480 is faster than the Radeon HD 5870 overall and its forward thinking design lays the foundation for future generations of NVIDIA processors moving forward, as the G80 did for much of the previous generation.”


“In the end though, the GeForce GTX 480 is a graphics card that kicks ass, it is without doubt the fastest single GPU based graphics card on the block.”

The Guru of 3D

“If you are a gamer, and you want the best performance you can get right now, GeForce GTX 480 SLI is where it is at.”


“The GTX 480 is a powerhouse, leaving ATI's fastest single-GPU card, the Radeon HD 5870, in the dust on our benchmark tests, and coming within striking distance of the dual-GPU Radeon HD 5970 in a few of our tests.”

Computer Shopper

“[The] GeForce GTX 480 and GeForce GTX 470 [are] generally-faster than Radeon HD 5870 and Radeon HD 5850. This is especially true when you turn on anti-aliasing, as the new GeForce cards take a much smaller hit than their competition.”

Tom’s Hardware

“Dominating” is the only word we can use to describe the GTX 480’s performance in Far Cry 2 8x AA. Not only does it leave the HD 5870 in the dust but it also manages to beat out the HD 5970. In addition, idle temperatures are actually quite good and fly in the face of previous rumours.”

Hardware Canucks

“The 3 Billion transistors stuffed on the 480 cores really churn out the eye candy and the newly restructured core is more efficient at Tessellation and Ray Tracing than anything we've seen to date. Performance remained high no matter what we threw at the GTX-480.”


“Its real strength however comes in its versatility with features such as 3D Vision, PhysX and CUDA combining to create a very well rounded product.”
