NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 Video Card Gets Official

NVIDIA logoNVIDIA is unveiling its latest video card officially today called the GTS 450. It is a DirectX 11 card that promises some impressive performance with NVIDIA boasting that the card is good for 2.4 times the geometry processing performance of previous generation products.

The new GTS 450 is a Fermi-based video card that will sell at a low price of $129. Big green states that the card is good enough for the average gamers that play at 1600 x 1050 or 1280 x 1024 resolutions. NVIDIA claims that the GTS 450 is 65% faster than the closest competitive offering in tessellation.

In specific games like StarCraft II, NVIDIA claims 30% more performance than the competition. NVIDIA is already positioning the GTS 450 for the mainstream gamer looking forward to some of the big games landing this holiday season like Civilization 2.

"The GeForce GTS 450 makes huge strides in expanding DX11 capability to the masses," said Sid Meier, Director of Creative Development, Firaxis Games. "Civilization V plays beautifully on the GTS 450 and looks even more amazing with 3D Vision technology."

The GTS 450 supports 3D Vision tech and can be used in SLI. AnandTech got hands on the GTS 450 for a full series of benchmarks and compares the card against the Radeon HD 5700 series. The GTS 450 has 192 stream processors, 16 ROPs and the stock clock speed is 783MHz on the core, 1566MHz on the shader, and 902MHz on the memory with a 128-bit memory bus. The card has 1GB of RAM and 1.17 billion transistors.

One of the things that NVIDIA is really pushing with the GTS 450 is the ability to overclock the card. That is good news for the enthusiasts and will mean a robust lineup of factory overclocked cards as well. AnandTech was able to overclock the core clock on a stock clocked reference card from 783MHz to 985MHz.

At the end of all the tests, AnandTech finds the card fast enough to not completely write it off as an option. However, the card isn’t aggressive enough on performance or price to make it a clear winner in the publications opinion.

NVIDIA also recently unveiled new mobile GPUs called the 400M series.
