NVIDIA Corporation on Monday announced its new mobile graphics processor called the GeForce FX Go5700. The chip may be the fastest mobile GPU formally announced so far. The company plans to ship it in the Q1 2004.

The latest addition into the GeForce FX Go lineup is based upon the new GeForce FX 5700 technology – NVIDIA’s first silicon manufactured at IBM’s East Fishkill, NY-based foundry. Both desktop and mobile GeForce FX 5700 and 5700 Ultra graphics processors have 4 rendering pipelines, boast with improved pixel and vertex shader processing engines, dubbed CineFX 2.0, as well as NVIDIA UltraShadow capability.

Besides improved architecture to boost 3D performance, NVIDIA decided to address two more factors: power consumption and quality of HD, DVD video. The new GeForce FX Go5700 operates at 1.1V, a 0.08V decrease from the GeForce FX Go5600, will implement a new power-management technology called PowerMizer 4.0 and will offer more performance at 8W of typical power consumption in 3D applications. Some other measures to limit power consumption are also packed into the GPU.

The GeForce FX Go5700 is able to dynamically adjust its working frequency according to current actions of the user, but will have two general speeds – 350/300(600)MHz for core/memory in Performance mode and 450/300(600)MHz in Desktop Replacement mode. The former is the setting to achieve maximum performance on battery power; the latter setting is to attain performance level of a desktop graphics card when working on outlet power.

NVIDIA did not provide a lot of technical details, but we may bring you additional information about the new FX Go5700 once X-bit labs’ Editor in Chief Anna Filatova is back from the GPU launch at Comdex Fall 2003.

Today, the GeForce FX Go5700 is shipping to OEMs and ODMs worldwide, with production quantities available in December. Systems based on the GeForce FX Go5700 are expected to be available to end users in Q1 2004. The company said that Alienware, Compal, FIC, Toshiba, Quanta, Uniwill and some other OEM or ODM notebook companies expressed tremendous interest in the new mobile GPU.
