Launch date announced for the GeForce GTX 470 and GeForce GTX 480

Ready to finally get your hands on the next GeForce card? Well, NVIDIA tweeted the release date and it will be March 26th. That will be the date the GeForce GTX 480 and GeForce GTX 470 will be available.

It's been a long time coming for the next generation NVIDIA cards. They will be the first DX11 cards for the company as well as a radical change in their architecture. NVIDIA's been making news with their other items such as ION and Tegra but for people like me who are PC hardware enthusiasts, this is very good news and one that I hope will deliver the goods for the company.

I saw the card in action at CES but didn't get any information or pricing at the show. To actually see the card work was a good step but we all know that NVIDIA's a little late to the game. They are playing a little game of catch up with AMD in terms of getting the next generation of cards out there but we'll see in a month if the wait was worth it.
