its still 65nm? wtf
I think its possible.. the cards not due out till end of 2008.. thats when games will prob be able to use this kind of power.
they could use this power now? look at crysis!
Still, 2GB of GDDR5 512bit bus, AWSOME.
I'm no NVidia fan, but if thats true thats really nice, although ATI had 512bit bus already and 1GB of GDDR4.
I excpect ATI to come out with 1024bit bus lol, with 4GB of GDDR6 RAM jk obviously
That's an a$$-load of raw processing power...256 Shaders!!!. So this is why NV never really adopted GDDR4.
there was a site I seen telling how much video ram crysis uses at certain resolutions with AA enabled elc.. 2gbs would be overkill.. maybe not if your using a 20" monitor thoguh.. I dont remember the site that I seen it on thoguh but for a 24" monitor it used like 700 and something mbs of video ram.
check this out it s a program that tell you how much video ram you've used http://forums.legitreviews.com/about8247.html
kinda off-topic but you have to remember there wont be any back breaking engines like Crytek in 2008 your more likely to see publishers like Sega, Capcom, EA, THQ, Ubisoft, Activision, Square Enix license the unreal warfare engine 3.0 from Epic Games http://www.unrealtechnology.com/news.php with the likes of the new Americas Army 3.0, Brothers in Arms Hells Highway, Tom Clancys End War, Tom Clancys Rainbow Six Vegas 2, Tom Clancys Splinter Cell: Conviction, Turok plus about two dozen titles for the XBX. So when building a gaming rig for 2008 you should keep that engine as the bar.
Crysis should of been released in 2008.
so whats the price gonna be like. Maybe the cost equivalent of to quads
while nv is doing high end cards ATI's doing low end cards. Who'll be succesfull?
Bolded = impossible
256MB (2Gbit) GDDR5 chips are well in 2009... And anyways, GDDR5 is x32 wide, not x64 as the source claimes 8 chips are required for 512bit bus.
So, the claimed memory config is the first fictional piece of info here...
Wonder what turns out to be BS next?
It all turned out to be just speculation.
You could restructure your question this way: "Who's gonna make more money end of it?"
My answer: ATI. Looking at their X-Mas 2007 sales, irrespective of product categorization.
You're right, even I thought there was something fishy with the memory banks.
Indeed if those specs would've been true, ATI would've needed like 800 shaders or something to get there with their ''R700''.
Funny how the guy at VR-Zone conveniently used the word "speculation" instead of "lies"
Wrong thread. XD
i bet this is fake....idk yet.
if it is true though, that will be pretty sweet.
I agree. It being 15-25% lower TDP than the 8800gts is just a false claim, seeing as though it has 1.5gb more memory than MOST cards, 512 bus, and still on 65nm even if its only a rumor.
I by no means implying this is true. However, Nvidia and ATI already have samples of GDDR5
Will we see this in 2008? The nvidian camp believes that G100 will not use GDDR3 nor GDDR4 so that only leaves GDDR5. Is it true? It's just rumors right now IMO. I only hope that R700 uses GDDR5 but we have to wait and see what develops. They've already been given samples but who really knows what that means in the long run...
