Nvidia has announced the latest addition to its Fermi-class of graphics processing units (GPUs), the Nvidia GeForce GTS 450 -- which was designed to deliver strong DirectX11 price/performance in the US$129 price category.

For games and applications that feature tessellation -- the key feature of DirectX 11 -- the GTS 450 is up to 65% faster than the closest competitive product, Nvidia stated. Even in previous generation DirectX 9 and 10 games, the GTS 450 is faster by over 30%, Nvidia added.

The GeForce GTS 450 is available from the company's add-in card partners, including ASL, Asustek Computer, Colorful, Elitegroup Computer System, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte Technology, Innovision 3D, Jetway, KFA2, Leadtek, Micro-Star International, Palit, Point of View, PNY, Sparkle, Zotac and others.
