NVIDIA GT214 GPU to have GDDR5? - details found on LinkedIn

Posted on Friday, December 26 2008 @ 18:30:58 CET by

Zhenggang Chen, a Senior Signal Integrity Hardware Engineer at NVIDIA, accidentally leaked some details about the upcoming NVIDIA GT214 GPU at his LinkedIn page. The info has already been removed, but Chile Hardware took a screenshot which lists Cheng is currently responsible for GT214, a graphics chip we haven't heard about before:
The information not only reveals a code-name of a future graphics chip from Nvidia, but also points to its GDDR5 support. It is highly likely that the GT214 is aimed at mainstream market, based on the fact that Mr. Cheng used to work on code-named G84 (GeForce 8600) and G96 (GeForce 9400) products.

The fact that Nvidia wants to support GDDR5 with potentially inexpensive graphics processing unit may mean that the standard will quickly become widespread and the chips will get inexpensive enough to get installed onto mainstream products, which will inevitably drive their performance considerably up.
