    G100, an upcoming graphics core from NVIDIA, supposedly supports CUDA 2. CUDA, an acronym for "compute unified device architecture", allows programmers to offload complex mathematical functions onto the GPU for processing. It takes advantage of Unified Shaders for these mathematical calculations. This is a new way to do demanding science computer calculations, as a graphics chip is much faster than a CPU.

    The differences between CUDA and CUDA 2 are to be seen. The G100 core is scheduled Q1 2008 and it might be even smaller than 65 nanometre.

    There is no 9 series because ATI Took it; i.e 9800GTS will not exist :roll:

    G100, as in Geforce X800?!

    If so, then what happened to G90? Surely they cannot release G90 AND G100 by Q1 2008.

    For a minute, I didnt understand what you were talking about. Then, well it dawned on me. So they will have to go 8900 or something and then bump to 10000GTX ::rofl:: How is it a GPU is much faster than a cpu? GPUs are running at most 750MHZ right? Well a cpu can get up to 3.8GHZ (Older P4 standards). Can someone explain this to me>

    Everyone should know by now that clock speed isn't the only magic number.
    Why don't you read this:

    In the end of the article, there is also something interesting mentioned about Vista ;)
