GeForce FX Previews

Posted on Monday, November 18 2002 @ 13:12:42 CET by

Well it's now official, the name of the NV30 will be the GeForce FX. Today there popped out a few previews on the web of this new chipset from nVidia.
Here's a snip from the preview of Bjorn3d :
Today NVIDIA is announcing NV30. This greatly anticipated DirectX9 Graphics Processing Unit (GPU), the first to include technology acquired from 3DFX, is finally being released. It cones by the name of GeForce FX. Bjorn3D was lucky enough to receive a press package from NVIDIA covering, in detail, the features of this new GPU. With this preview, we’ll look at the extensive features of this next generation product and a take a quick glance at the card.

The GeForce “FX” name was purposely chosen for two reasons:
1. The GeForce FX takes great steps to bring the home user closer to cinema style effects seen on the large screen capabilities,
2. The second reason, which may not have jumped out at you upon seeing the name, is that “FX” is taken from “3DFX”. As I mentioned in the introduction, NVIDIA has been working long and hard on integrating the wealth of knowledge (and patents), which they’ve acquired from 3DFX.
