NVIDIA announces GeForce GTS 450 Fermi-class GPU

New GeForce GTS 450 Delivers 2.4X Geometry Processing Performance Over Previous Generation Products

NVIDIA today announced the latest addition to its Fermi-class of graphics
processing units (GPUs), the NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 — which was designed to
deliver the best DX11 price/performance in the $129 USD price category.
According to the latest Steam survey, a leading indicator of the hardware used
by PC gamers today, 56 percent of gamers play at mainstream resolutions,
typically between 1600×1050 and 1280×1024. The GTS 450 was specifically designed
to excel at these resolutions, delivering awesome DX11 performance with 4X
antialiasing turned on, enabling more gamers than ever before to experience
incredibly detailed characters, terrain and game environments with blazing fast
performance and awesome visuals.

For games and applications that feature tessellation the key
feature of DX11 the GTS 450 is up to 65% faster than the closest
competitive product. Even in last generation DX9 and DX10 games, the GTS 450
is faster by over 30%, including in the blockbuster PC title StarCraft II.
This makes the GTS 450 a terrific GPU for playing this year’s hottest games
including the upcoming holiday titles like Civilization V and Hawx2, both of
which feature support for DX11 and tessellation, and other games, such as Dead
Rising 2.

"The GeForce GTS 450 makes huge strides in expanding DX11 capability to the
masses," said Sid Meier, Director of Creative Development, Firaxis Games.
"Civilization V plays beautifully on the GTS 450 and looks even more amazing
with 3D Vision technology."

"We are excited about the GeForce GTS 450, which brings awesome performance
to a very affordable price point," said Shinsaku Ohara, Producer of Dead Rising
2 at Capcom. "By delivering a great gaming experience mixed with some
cutting-edge features such as support for 3D Vision, we are confident that fans
of Dead Rising 2 will have a great platform to play on."

With full support for NVIDIA 3D Vision technology, the GeForce GTS 450 also
provides the graphics horsepower and video bandwidth needed to experience games
and high definition Blu-ray movies in eye-popping stereoscopic 3D. And with
NVIDIA SLI technology, the industry’s most scalable multi-GPU platform, gamers
will be ecstatic to almost double their gaming performance by adding a second
GTS 450 to their PC, when budget allows.

The GeForce GTS 450 is available starting today from the world’s leading
add-in card partners, including ASL, ASUS, Colorful, ECS, EVGA, Gainward,
Galaxy, Gigabyte, Innovision 3D, Jetway, KFA2, Leadtek, MSI, Palit, Point of
View, PNY, Sparkle, Zotac and others.
