Nvidia Plans to Start Transition to PCI Express 2.0 This Fall.
All the CPU does is process given information and control things such as AI and variables, and calculate Psychics.
Those figures you've posted looks very awesome, but it seems to me that they are pure projections. Oh by the way, I can also project the numbers for R680 similarly...
R680 Core hardware:
Superscalar VLIW architecture
65 nm process
More than 800 MHz core frequency
957.4 million transistors*
425 Vec5 superscalar ALUs* (85 stream processing units)
631.125 GFLOPS raw shader power (1.485 GFLOPS per ALU)
512-bit memory ring bus (1024-bit bi-directional)
Samsung 1 GB GDDR4 (0.7 ns) @ 2450 MHz, max. 2 GB for FireGL
Memory bandwidth 313.6 GB/s
-> larger texture, vertex L1, L2 caches
-> 32 Raster Operation Pipelines (ROPs)
Higher hardware tessellation ratio (from currently 1:15)
7.1 surround sound capable audio controller on-die
UVD gen 2 on-die, offloads more formats besides H.264, VC-1, and MPEG2
upgradable to GDDR5 memory, 2 GB for desktop, maximum 4096 MB (4 GB) for FireGL in late-2008
Note: * figures projected by a 1.33x more transistors by the same die size as R600, I guess ATI will be better in sillcon scaling, thus maybe more transistors will be packed than those figures projected.
DirectX 10.1 and OpenGL 3.0 full compliancy and support
Full PCI-E 2.0 support
Dual/single DisplayPort and/or HDMI with dual decryption keys on-die, also in the options are DVI, D-Sub and TV out
Double precision FP calculations capable (FP64)
CTM 2.0, thin hardware interface
Folding@Home and distributed computing support through monthly-updated Catalyst drivers
CrossFire 2.0: allow at most 4 cards connected, one/two for Gamplay physics.
CrossFire 3.0: allowing more than 4 cards to be connected and codenamed "Lasso", external PCI-E cabling enclosure with more than 2 cards up to 16 cards running CrossFire, for professional graphics.
30x and 36x CFAA options, more filters
ATI powerplay 8.0
R670, mainstream version, with reduced features
Is that okay? Although that's not enough to beat G90, but considering it's only a half-generation product, that's enough eye-candies for now, bye. :)
TEHRE IS GONNA BE A 9800 GTX AND IT WILL BE AT LEAST 2 TIMES BETTER THAN THE ULTRA!
so shut the fuck up!!!!!
go researched on nvidia's website, THEY COMFIRMED IT DICKHEAD!
type geforce 9800 into google right now, i dare ya. EVERY page that comes up comfirms the awesome, raw gaming power the new gtx will bring.
So stop dissing the fucking card and accept it!
GeForce 9 is just a dream now.. a dream prolly on the paper and designed already but still a tiny bit far in future!!
rumors point all in same direction tho.. march or april 2008!
5 months...or more... who knows...
People who are trying to pu people to beleive this are just wasting their time.
But there will be a new series coming out in about march but it will have a totally new name. Some thought that it will have a chronological order and started the rumour of the 9800 and G92, but they will have a totally new look and new series.
ATI released 9800 7 or 10 year ago. you ar ol stupid I gonna get ATI insted for 50 bucks, same power many les dinars !
