The number of Nvidia GeForce GTX 480 videocards in EVGA's stable now sits at four, the latest being the GeForce GTX 480 SuperClocked + w/ High Flow Bracket and Backplate.
Everything that sets this card apart from the rest is laid out in the uber-long naming scheme, starting with the SuperClocked+ frequencies. EVGA goosed the GPU clockspeed from 700MHz to 726MHz, the same as on the vanilla SuperClocked version, and cranked the memory from 3696MHz to 3800MHz, also the same as the standard SuperClocked model.
Unique to this particular card, however is the backplate slapped to the underside of the card. Along with the high flow bracket, EVGA claims temperatures are reduced by up to 7C.
No word on when it will ship, only that it will run $550, at least if purchased direct from EVGA. The graphics maker also sells a reference GeForce GTX 480 for $520, SuperClocked model for $530, and the Hydro Copper FTW version (for water cooling setups) for $650.
Dutch website Tweakers.net posted what they claim are honest-to-goodness pictures of Nvidia's GeForce GTX 480 videocard, otherwise known as Fermi.
The pictures were taken during the CeBIT exhibition and show Fermi unmasked. The site says it's an A2 revision GPU, though identifying marks have been blacked out. You'll also notice 12 memory chip, 128MB each, for a total of 1.5GB of memory.
While the cooler has been removed and is visible from the underside in just one of the pics, you can see heatpipes extending upwards. Tweak.net says this will be Nvidia's standard cooler, adding that you'll likely see AIB partners add their own cooler to cut costs.
