NVIDIA GeForce 9800 taped out - probably available in November

Posted on Wednesday, August 15 2007 @ 19:38:19 CEST by

The Inq heard NVIDIA has taped out its G92 GPU, which will most likely be launched as the GeForce 9800.
Nvidia is paying quite a lot of attention to thermals and performance of the chip in complex shaders.

G92 was not the only product that was taped out, but we're waiting to dig out more details of these. However, one of the chips is Nvidia's counter to RV680. When it comes to manufacturing, Nvidia moved away from 80/90nm manufacturing processes over at TSMC and opted for a new manufacturing process.

Knowing Graphzilla's brilliant record of accomplishment and 100 day "tape-out to retail shelf" policy, the new GeForce should debut in late October or early November. However, our sources told us that company is now devoting key time to fixing problems with the existing GeForce 8000 series of cards, caused by "buggy chips", as one source put it. This might impair the performance of initial drivers.

nVidia needs to fix the 'buggy chips' in the 680i motherboards!
