What AMD and NVIDIA will unveil next month (RV670, G92)

Posted on Wednesday, October 10 2007 @ 14:16:33 CEST by

With all sorts of rumours floating around the web there's still quite a lot of confusion about the GPUs that will likely be launched in a couple of weeks by AMD and NVIDIA.

Unfortunately, one of the things we know almost for sure is that both firms are not going to introduce a new high-end graphics card. So don't get your hopes up for a GeForce 9800 GTX or something like that, you'll have to wait until somewhere in 2008.

What we can expect from both firms is a new appealingly prices mid-range graphics card which should give you a lot of bang for your bucks. These cards will be slower than the current high-end models from AMD and NVIDIA but they will be much cheaper, probably priced somewhere around $249.

The NVIDIA G92 will be launched by the end of this month or in November as the GeForce 8800 GT and will have a 600MHz core, 900MHz memory and 256-bit memory bus. This will be NVIDIA's first GPU made on a 65nm process and also one of the first cards with PCI Express 2.0.

Rumours indicate the AMD RV670 GPU will be launched as the Radeon HD 2950 Pro and that this PCI Express 2.0 card will be made on a 55nm process. Details about clock speeds aren't really know, AMD told the press at the World Cyber Games in Seattle last week that no final clocks are set yet.

But remember, almost all of these details are based on rumours so take it with a grain of salt. More details should appear on the web as we get closer to the launch of these GPUs.
