    yup, theres a GT340 too, and its an exact copy of the GT 240

    and also a GTS 350 which still unknown but will more than likely be another G92, hopefully the G92 makes its last stand in the G300 series and dosen't make it to the G400

    I love those G92's but they need to die already, they're like the nemesis from resident evil 3

    Maybe they invested a lot into Fermi (which is a 'radical' new idea - at least to consumers), and are not going to go out on a limb on multiple sectors? Honestly I wouldn't expect them to have the revenue to do such things.

    Sounds smart to me. Sounds like someone's going to keep their job :D.

    Lets just hope the R&D Sector can afford them.

    We'll see how this Fermi unfolds, sounds awesome if it works!

    Personally I'd like to see more unified/shared cache, but wtf do I know.

    Anyone know what manufacturing process Fermi will be made under?

    That was last year dude.

    Reports put it as low as 20% and as high as 55-60% for "Fermi" chips. Now, which does the GTX 480 and 470 fall in to I don't know, but 2% is way in the past from everything that is out there.

    Ah, so that is why they are delaying fermi because they produce so damn much... Now i understand
    Why didnt they delay it last year so much? Because you would say they had low yelds AHAHAHAHA

    Now seriously I am asking kindly from whoever moderators 'territory' this is, to take much harder line with offtopic spam.

    It is not tolerated anywhere else, so why is it tolerated in this thread?

    Oh and pelase don't say there isn't news atm about Fermi, then don't spam here, go talk something there is something to talk about and well get on track when NVIDIA shows something interesting again.

    I completely agree. The spammers have been shut up before, but without fail when things get slow they beat the dead horse.

    You guys are right. I suppose when there is new information, give a moderator a PM and we'll reopen this thread. Fact of the matter is this thread is useless right now. Since "spammers" like to post on this frustrating Nvidia matter, it's more fair to the moderators not to have to deal with this crap in one thread over and over again.

    Thread closed untill ?.
    roast, HammerON, eidairaman1 and 3 others say thanks.

    Fermi/GTX 480 unfixable, broken

    GTX 480 broken/unfixable

    That's the final 3 paragraphs. It's a long read but well worth it to understand whats being said and i think its quite possible that they're correct.

    I see nvidia slacking bad over the Next 2 Years. If they don't get Fermi out soon they might fail
    I see AMD/ATI and Intel Starting to build market share. I see intel and AMD/ATi Selling a lot more Low-Mid range Cards in Starter Systems at good old Walmart PC(dell HP ect). With 70% of these people be happy with the Intel or AMD intergrated Graphics so they will not upgrade.
    AMD/ATI and Intel with there stronger earning Will slowly phase out Nvidia. Nvidia with it's Loss of sales from chipsets and Lower end graphics cards will start bleeding cash. So when it come down to it Fermi is all they will have. "IF" Fermi is Broken unfixable or very bad yields We might get to see them Start bleeding cash Soon. lets hope that R@D turns off the lights at night, or wait maybe the power was shut off months ago.

    interesting read.

    even if its not accurate, there was some good insights into GPU manufacturing in there.



    erocker: gah,i was replying to A_umps thread and wondering why it spazzed out on me o_O

    Even if most of it is true, it's still "told by Charlie" with all his anti-nVidia bias, so all the bad parts are certainly exaggerated.

    Notice it is GTX 480 and not 470.

    There are a few on B3D that are suggesting that GTX 470s are not the hard parts to get but the full 512 GTX 480 is (per TDP and clock targets). If you give me a few I'll see if I can find a few posts to quote.
