The ASUS GeForce GTX 470 graphics card (ENGTX470) has 448 CUDA cores operating at a 607MHz core clock speed, 1280MB of GDDR5 memory, and a 320-bit memory interface. Will this be enough to compete with the ATI Radeon HD 5850 graphics cards series in the $350 price range? Read on to figure out how the ENGTX470 does when we put it to the test!
The ASUS GeForce ENGTX470 graphics card proved to be a slightly better performing graphics card than the reference designed Radeon HD 5850 graphics card that we tested it against. When compared to the factory overclocked Sapphire Radeon HD 5850 Toxic Edition, the ASUS GeForce GTX 470 traded blows in a benchmark battle too close to call. Since a Radeon HD 5850 can be purchased for $299.99 shipped without rebates, the ASUS GeForce GTX 470, priced at $349.99 plus $8 shipping has it work cut out for it, however, NVIDIA has always had a loyal customer base.
