Nvidia GeForce GTS 450 specs leaked, listed online

By on September 6, 2010, 9:16 AM
Nvidia still hasnít made an official announcement but their next mainstream desktop product, the GF106-based GeForce GTS 450, has already been fully exposed and put up for pre-order by various online retailers. The card will be positioned as the successor to the GeForce GTS 250 in the sub-$160 market featuring 192 Cuda cores, 1GB GDDR5 and a 128-bit memory interface.

Stock configurations come with a core clock of 783MHz while the Cuda cores and memory run at 1566MHz and 3600MHz, respectively. AIC partners will be free to make their own non-reference designs at release, though, so you can probably expect models with clocks running a few MHz higher. Other specs include 4 Polymorph Engines and 32 Texture Units, DVI and HDMI outputs, and a dual-slot design.

In terms of power consumption the GTS 450 is said to draw a maximum of 106W through one 6-pin PCI Express connector, which is roughly the same as what the Radeon HD 5770 consumes. Itíll be interesting to see how these two compare when it comes to price and gaming performance Ė going by some early benchmarks posted at Xtreme Systems, which includes numbers for a slightly overclocked Asus card, it looks like a tough fight for Nvidia. A firm launch date hasnít been confirmed yet but rumors suggest the GeForce GTS 450 will arrive September 13.

VERY late as usual for the 'fermi' cards but it will be good to see the HD5770 1GB getting some good competition, hopefully for Nvidia it won't be too late because of the AMD 6 series cards =/

It's debatable that the GTX 460 can be considered a competitor to the HD 5770. I know here in Canada the 460 is only around $10CAD more than the 5770. So here the 5770 is complete garbage now that the 460 is out.

The GTX 460 is $200+ here and the 5770 is 130. In the US they are pretty far apart

128-bits... come on, that can't be the best replacement for the mighty GTS250!! I'm probably buying an Evga GTX460 1GB 256-bits, which here, in Argentina, can be found for the price of U$S375... Kinda expensive compared with newegg... but not bad =S

130!!!!? You lucky bastards. You get the cheap 5770 and the $200 i7-930s from microcenter!

Seems like GTX460 Redux...

Stock frequencies effectively underclocked to meet a friendly TDP, while simultaneously garnering a reputation as an overclockers dream if EVGA's base oc model is any indication (882 core/ 1764 shader/ 3800 memory, as opposed to 783/1566/3600 ).
