The Inq writes the upcoming NVIDIA G80 will stay on the 90nm process.
Nvidia doesn't want to risk the shrinkage to 80 nanometre. Its experiences with its own NV30 taught it not to take the unnecessary risks with chip shrinkage on such important chips.
It all makes sense now. The G80 is taped out. The first silicon is back and the company is about to get it in production. The announcement is imminent and the new chip has every chance of outperforming ATI’s upcoming R580+ based Radeon X1950 XTX.

Yep and then the G81 or whatnot will be the respin to 80nm, much like the 7800 to 7900 series. Now some of us are waiting patiently to buy one, so hurry up NV! :)
