    Nordic Hardware reports that NVIDIA's next generation GeForce 9800 will be aiming for speeds of 3 teraflops, three times the speed of ATI's R680. The R680 is planned on having two RV670 chips side by side on a single PCB and be able to output around only 1 teraflop. Both NVIDIA and ATI's next generation graphics cards are slated for launch in the Spring of 2008.

    Ha I would have renamed it... now it sounds like 9800, if I just said that, well... it would be like ATI's card. Sad...

    i think Intel has a big surprise in store for both Nvidia and AMD. 2008 should be an interesting year for the discrete end of the vga market.

    Remember the R600... we were like OMG ITS AMAZING. Now it seems it is "ok" so time will tell, but it is just another stunt.

    humm maybe they wanna pull what c2d did to amd.. get a jump ahead of the game.. I dont see why we would need all this power right away.. there could be a couple card releases before they hit 3tflops.. but this 3tflops is music to my ears.

    With the Tesla CPGPU thing they got going on, its very possible they can hit that on consumer cards.

    somehow 3 teraflops sounds a little too much.. i wonder if this is with quad sli? maybe then its believable lol

    With the use of the 9800 moniker, nVidia will be sure to remember how ATI's 9800 wiped the floor with the GeForce FX line harhar :nutkick:

    Keeping that in mind this may be some sort of savior card for nVidia :confused: Who Knows Lol

    Nvidia has been doing well enough ever since the 6 series, the 8 series they really mowed ATi down. Maybe it's ATi's turn, or maybe Nvidia will keep dominating.

    //I want a dual-core GPU!!

    3 Tf....that'd be awesome. Imagine using that thing for folding.

    ATI put up some good competition with their X1K series against the 7 series. I hope this will be true as well, 3 TFLOPs would be awesome :D

    ATI and Nvidia do seem to be pretty neck and neck. I do have a really hard time in believing that they're going to hit 3 terraflops though. I just wish they would hurry up and add more software support for folding when it comes to the new gpu's.

    First its 1 Teraflops and now 3 TF. Doesn´t sound right to me. I mean they are using G80 architechture on this thing, just don´t see that kinda performance increase possible. We will see.

    btw about the folding, yeah that would be awesome, if only Nvidia would invest some effort into it. I understanded adding up folding support is quite easy on behalf of 3D card manufacturers.

    This is probaly just refering to tri sli which would make sense each card would be 1 teraflops
