Product Description

Built for DirectX11 Tessellation The last innovation that fundamentally altered 3D realism was pixel shading. The next great breakthrough is tessellation. The central feature of DirectX 11 and used in critically acclaimed games like Metro 2033 and Civilization V, tessellation allows the game designer to pack an enormous amount of geometry in the scene without sacrificing performance. PhysX PhysX is the only physics engine that taps into the power of the GPU for physics computation. Used by the ubiquitous Unreal Engine, PhysX has been at the forefront in bringing physically simulated effects to games. In Mafia II, PhysX was used to create fluid flowing character clothing. In Batman: Arkham Asylum, PhysX introduced interactive smoke, GPU rigid bodies, and debris. In Dark Void, PhysX modeled the complex turbulence effects of the jetpack. NVIDIA 3D Vision Surround NVIDIA 3D Vision Surround dramatically expands both the width and depth of the gaming experience. NVIDIA 3D Vision combines high-tech wireless 3D glasses and advanced software that automatically transforms over 400 PC games into full stereoscopic 3D. The added third dimension breathes new life into classic titles such as Unreal Tournament 3 and completely transforms new, 3D optimized titles such as Call of Duty: Black Ops and Battlefield Bad Company 2. Realtime Raytracing Considered by many as the holy grail of graphics, ray tracing produces images with perfect reflections and refractions, accurate shadows, and photorealistic lighting. It is the rendering technique of choice for graphics professionals, but up until now, it has been limited to non-realtime applications. Thanks to Fermi's advanced compute architecture, GeForce GTX 400/500 GPUs are able to perform raytracing in realtime, at up to 15 frames per second. For even higher visual realism, the GPU can also perform pathtracing for true global illumination.

Verified Purchase
I bought the GTX480 after seeing a chart on Toms Hardware ranking it the best in price/performance (at $200). Though I paid a little more than that, it has performed very well.
I am not a gamer, but I want to have the power there if needed. The GTX480 definitely delivers.

I purchased this card after a great deal of research to get an affordable high performance solution. It is not the best, the most expensive, but I didn't need that and its performance rating got me far more than I had before. The card is large and required some cutting and snipping to get it to fit into the case and in my motherboard's only PCI-express 16 slot as I also had to move the Sata disk cables around because they interfered with this double slot max length card. I also got a new power supply to gain the power needed and a new 27" monitor to complete the upgrade. After several hours of hardware work, then software work and everything works just great! I feel like I've got a few more years out of my system, now.

I needed more vram for creating video movies. The card has 2 DVI ports and 1.5gb of vram. The factory card in my Mac had 1 DVI port and .5gb of vram. I am running dual monitors with Final Cut Pro on a 24” screen and all my source windows (4) open on another monitor.

This unit has its own fan and takes up 2 slots on the computer. Its been working great and I love the results.
