GeForce GTX 470 Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce GTX 470 is a high-end GPU based on the 40nm Fermi architecture.
It's based on the Fermi GF100 Core and offers 480 Shader Processing Units, 56 TMUs and 40 ROPs. The central unit runs at 607MHz and the memory clock operates at 837MHz.
Compared to GeForce GTX 480, it delivers considerably worse performance due to the lower SPU count and lower clocked central unit and therefore also lower Shaders speed.
Most modern demanding games will run at the highest settings using a 1080p resolution. However, some will require reduced settings to be played optimally.

well, it lost its 9 rating. but at least it went down with dignity, since it took the GTX 900 series to drop it down to 8.

I don't recommend getting this card, there are way more power efficient gpus (kepler), I'd rather get a gtx 660.
