NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 is a high-end desktop graphics card that was introduced in 2010. It is based on the GF100 Fermi chip which is produced in 40nm at TSMC. The GTX480 uses only 480 of the 512 shaders of the GF100 silicon. The mobile GeForce GTX 480M (see here for information and benchmark) is clearly slower as it offers only 352 shaders and a slower clock rate.
