NVIDIA Leaks GeForce GTX 480 Unigine Benchmarks, 3D Surround Vision Demo

Tom Peterson over at NVIDIA gets all the chicks.  I mean with his technical know-how, witty banter and boyish good looks, it's easy to see why.  Okay, maybe that's not why.  Maybe it's because he gets daily hands-on time with the soon to be released but not yet, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480, otherwise known as GF100.  Not only that, he also has the ability to defy and breach NVIDIA's very own NDA embargo launch times for the product, well ahead of us here in the lowly Tech Press community.  I mean really Tom; do you have to steal all our thunder?  Well, there is still plenty more to see in the weeks ahead, as we take our turn at the test bench with the new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480, but in the mean time, take a look at what Tom has cooking in the NVIDIA lab.  You can almost hear the groupies up front chanting "Free Bird" and holding up lighters.  Wait, that's just his florescent green test rig...

Tom does a nice job of explaining Tesselation rendering at around the two minute mark and then proceeds to stick the knife in and twist it just a teeny-weeny bit, when he shows how the Unigine benchmark fares on the NVIDIA card versus an AMD ATI Radeon HD 5870.

There's also a little bit of 3D Surround gaming going on in there at the end.  Tom did as a favor and left out the numbers for any actual game titles thankfully, so you'll have to come back here in the next few weeks as we light up a GeForce GTX 480 of our own.  Wonder if the hotties will come running for us to?  Or maybe it's really just Tom's animal magnetism or that slight air of Aqua Velva man about him.  We'll find out and let you know for sure either way.
