As some of you may know the GTX 480 and 470s have been released. Upon inspection of the stat sheet it turns out that the 480 will not have the 512 cores it was orginally thought to have instead it will only have 480 cores enabled running at 1401 Mhz.

For anyone that is curious that should give you 1.605 Billion hashes/sec single hash speed. Compare that to the 480 core GTX 295 running at 1242 Mhz your only talking about 183 Million h/sec difference.

The nice thing is that if you can happen to get 7 of these working in a single machine you can hope to get around 11 billion h/sec, the much more likely result is getting only 4 in a single machine resulting in 6.42 Billion h/sec. What a let down Nvidia :(
