“Whilst navigating through the tech-filled halls at CeBIT 2010, keen to spot NVIDIA’s next-generation graphics architecture, we were told that board partners would be wheeling in the high-end GTX 480 card in closed PCs, limiting the press’ chances of getting hands-on with the GPU that’s due to launch on March 26th.
As the launch draws near, NVIDIA’s partners are busy readying retail boxes.”

Unboxings and sneak previews might not be your favourite thing, as they do tend to be a bit light on content but HEXUS may have found one you might like. A lesser known partner of nVIDIA, Colorful, has let their GTX 480 box design slip out. That box helpfully lists the stats of the card inside, giving us a good look at what to expect. 1,536MB of GDDR5 comes onboard, the card will require a 6-pin and and 8-pin PCIe power connector and you are recommended to have a PSU of at least 600W with 42A on the 12V line. Also of note is the back of the card which only has twin dual-link DVI-I connectors and a mini-HDMI port, no Display Port.
