ASUS ENGTX480-2D1-1536 Geforce GTX 480 Videocard Review

ASUS ENGTX480-2D1-1536 Geforce GTX 480 Videocard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: NVIDIA does stress that the Geforce GTX 480 is more than just a gaming card however. It's the first videocard to use NVIDIA's Fermi architecture, which is a radical departure from the design of previous Geforce videocards.

GPGPU Videocard Benchmarks: Sandra 2009

SiSoft Sandra 2009 - GPGPU Processing Source: Sandra

Sisoft's Sandra's GPGPU (general purpose graphics processing unit) benchmark analyzes the ability of the GPU to perform Mandelbrot equations to generate fractals. These same types of equations are used in tasks like image processing, video encoding and scientific simulations, giving an index of how well a GPU can perform in this test.

ASUS ENGTX480 2DI/1536MD5 151.8

SiSoft Sandra wasn't able to take full advantage of the CUDA cores inside of NVIDIA's Geforce GTX 480. Given how much emphasis NVIDA has placed on double-precision shaders for its GPGPU processing, this is a little dissapointing.

The second part of Sisoft's Sandra's GPGPU measures the videocard's memory bandwidth, which will directly affect the overall performance of GPGPU applications.

The numbers here are much more in favor of the ENGTX480-2D1-1536. Even through the Radeon HD 5870 has faster GDDR5 memory (5GHz vs. 3.7GHz), the ASUS ENGTX480-2D1-1536's wider memory bus interface (384-bit vs. 256-bit ),tips the scales in NVIDIA's favor.

Now let's wrap this massive review of the GeForce GTX 480 up.
