Nvidia core G80 emerges
NVIDIA'S NEXT generation graphic remains a well protected secret. We still managed to get some information about it, despite that. We confirmed that G70 is the real thing and we learned that Nvidia has one more chip down the road codenamed the G80.
We expect it to be based on 90 nanometre and have more pipes than NV40. We don't think that it will be dual graphics core stuff but you never know, you kow.
We suspect this card should be ready sometimes in September time even some people suggested April as a possibility. But we believe that April is just a poisson d'Avril, or mayhaps a red herring.
Nvidia and its partners are quite confident that they have the right thing but ATI has strong R520 horse for race. Let's see what the future brings. µ
