Palit GeForce GTX 470

Product image Product image
Palit may not be the most well-known brand in parts of the world but they are actually part of a large NVIDIA partner with huge resources and their GTX 470 comes in a box which emphasises this fact through showing that they have their own unique design for this card. Inside we have a bundle which includes the GeForce GTX 400 series tech demos and the dongle required to add VGA connectivity to the card.

The card itself features a dual slot cooler with twin, 80mm orange fans that sit above aluminium heatsinks and copper heatpipes. These combine to effectively cool the GPU which sits on a custom PCB which is approximately 10mm shorter than the reference GTX 470.

The reference GTX 470 design incorporates Dual-link DVIs with a mini HDMI which could cause connectivity issues for some users. Palit on the other hand do not have this problem, ensuring that all users are catered for through the use of Dual-link DVIs, DisplayPort and HDMI with support for 7.1 audio. Along the top edge of the PCB we find the two 6pin power sockets and dual SLI connector which tells us that 3-way SLI is supported.

Underneath the cooler Palit use a 40nm GF100 GPU which is a DirectX 11/Shader Model 5.0 part with support for DirectCompute 5.0 and PCI-Express 2.0. Within the GPU are 40 ROPs with 448 unified shaders and it connects to 1280MB of GDDR5 via a 320-bit memory bus. Palit clock this card at 608MHz core, 837MHz memory and 1215MHz shader which matches the reference specifications.

As with the other GeForce cards in this review this version supports PhysX, CUDA, 3D Vision, OpenCL and acceleration of Blu-Ray content.
