Nvidia Corp. and its partners among suppliers of graphics cards are showcasing the forthcoming Nvidia GeForce GTX 400-series graphics boards at CeBIT 2010 trade-show in Hannover, Germany.

The look of the higher-performance model GeForce GTX 480 is already well known, but in addition to that several web-sites have published the photos of the GeForce GTX 470, which is projected to offer lower performance, but also be less power hungry. The model GTX 470 appears to be much shorter than the older brother and will also need only two six-pin PCI Express power connectors. Still, like all GTX-series graphics boards, the novelty will support three-way SLI multi-GPU technology and will be able to power very high performance systems.

The GeForce GTX 400-series graphics boards use rather complicated cooling system with air intake from three sides of the card. However, at least the GeForce GTX 470 does not seem to have a too complex power supply circuitry, which may mean that the price of the product will not be too high.

According to media reports, at least some GeForce GTX 400-series graphics cards are marked as GF100-375-A3, which points to A3 revision of the chip. The configuration of the graphics processing unit is still unclear.

Nvidia did not comment on the news-story.

Any idea how long it's this?? Looks way longer than a 5870. That mean that the 480 will be longer than 5970
