Ready for a bit of Friday-morning conjecture?

Good, because the rumour mill is suggesting that NVIDIA is all set to follow up on this month's award-winning GeForce GTX 460 with another Fermi-derived GPU; the GeForce GTS 450.

The entry-level card will be the first to carry the GTS nomenclature, suggesting that both performance and price will be lowered another notch. In terms of the latter, we reckon NVIDIA would be positioning the card up against AMD's ATI Radeon HD 5770, suggesting a £120 - £130 price bracket.

Keeping the guesses flowing, word on the grapevine is that the GTS 450 will make use of a new GF106 core, paired with perhaps 1GB of GDDR5 memory via a cost-cutting 128-bit interface.

NVIDIA has yet to comment on the speculation, but we're hearing whispers of an August launch, and the pictured PCB shots - leaked in Asia just hours ago - suggest the card will sport a six-pin power connector and SLI capability.

Oooh, silkscreens!
Hopefully this will be faster than an HD5770 1GB and have similar power consumption.
Still too large for Lian-Li Q07 :(
Guess my Powercolor HD5770 will not be replaced any time soon.
Awaiting custom design with shorter PCB.
£130? Entry-level? :p
Yeah that should probably be “entry level enthusiast” :p

I don't hold out much hope of this beating the 5770 btw, assuming it's half a gf104.
