Nvidia Corp., a leading designer of graphics processing units (GPUs), is unlikely to present a new graphics processing this year targeting this marker. Apparently, Nvidia only wants to present the forthcoming code-named GF100 graphics processor.

“Fermi GF100, a graphics processing unit (GPU) architecture for compute, tessellation, physics, and computational graphics,” a description for the chip reads of the description of a presentation at the Hot Chips conference in late August.

It is quite remarkable that Nvidia plans to describe its graphics processor units that was first unveiled last September in early August this year. Maybe, Nvidia’s GF100 flagship chip is likely to receive high awards at the conference designed for high-computing solutions, but is also rather clear that the code-named GF100 is the highest performance solution for high-performance computing (HPC) and eventually graphics processing at Nvidia this year.

ATI, graphics business unit of Advanced Micro Devices, said earlier this year a new GPU would provided higher performance compared the current ATI Radeon HD 5870, which would allow to keep the keep single-card performance crown-ship in 2010.

So after release a pile of hot, low perf shits, they feel good?

Shut up troll!!! Have you ever played a game on a Fermi? Also, an OC'd gtx 470 outperformes an OC'd 5870. So I don't think that Fermi are a "low perf shits". A little bit hot yeah, but with water cooling system they have no match.

So nvidia have a talk about the GF100 at an HPC conference in August and from that you infer no new high end graphics chips for the whole year?

1) August is a long way from the end of the year. They won't necessarily bring up a chip for release in say November - that would impact the current chips sales, and if the architecture for the new chip hasn't changed (e.g. if it's just a faster lower power version) then anything they talk about in August will still apply for this *new* chip.

2) HPC does not equal high end graphics cards. In particular the GF104 is meant to be lower power/heat because the took some of the HPC functionality out of it. If they were for example to do a high end version of that with 512 cores then that would be great for graphics, but no good for HPC because it'd be missing a stuff that requires. Hence it would never get discussed in an HPC conference.

Hey grishnakh, the 480 outperforms the 5870, so it is hardly a POS, and in fact the newer drivers are bringing big gains. It
s new tech, but it will mature brilliantly over the next year or so.

Fermi is a good card and an interesting architecture but .. as a nVIDIA project, is a failure. Very expensive die, very hot card, expensive cooling system, expensive PCB , expensive PCB components that should withstand this functioning regime. FERMI is a great architecture but a failure as a project. Good performance though
