NVIDIA 65nm G81 to replace G80?

Posted on Thursday, January 25 2007 @ 17:02:24 CET by

NVIDIA is rumoured to be working on a 65nm G81 GPU, which will be the new high-end part in their GeForce 8000 series lineup. The Inq says it will probably not arrive until the end of the second quarter of this year:
Nvidia holds the crown with G80 and the R600 is still over a month away. R600 won't win in all categories, so Nvidia might still be fine with an overclocked G80. Overclocked G80s are coming in volumes and we got a hold or few that we are testing at press time. Unfortunately, EVGA doesn’t offer overclocked G80s in its step up programme.

G81 might not show its face that soon, but Nvidia is at least experimenting with a new process. We would be very surprised if we see high end 65 nanometre before the end of the second quarter but more realistically later than that. However, Nvidia has surprised us more than once in the last few quarters. Both Nvidia and DAAMIT need to shrink to 65 and we know that this step is a difficult one. AMD barely managed to move its CPU production to this shrink up and GPUs are far more complex and difficult.

Honestly I don't want a G80 till they shrink it down. 90nm was just too hot for the G80's complexity.

I can wait. Or just take a 600 instead if they take too long.
