GeForce GTX 480 Tortured by FurMark

by on April 1, 2010

The GeForce GTX480 is still pretty difficult to come by, but that hasn’t stopped the few lucky benchmarking sites that got one from putting it through some pretty grueling tests.  Over at Geeks3d, they push it with FurMark to discover just how much the card can take.  A full load, the card draws 300W (more than the 250W stated by NVidia) and emits an annoying 45dB of fan noise.
