GeForce 9800 GTX speculation

Posted on Friday, Dec 28 2007 @ 21:36 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
VR Zone has some speculation about the specifications of NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce 9800 GTX (G100) graphics card:
- Codenamed G100
- 65nm process
- 256 shader processors
- 780MHz core clock
- 3200MHz memory clock
- 512-bit memory width
- 2048MB (256X8) GDDR5 chips
- GDDR5 @ 0.25-0.5ns
- Dual DVI-out
- Supports DX 10.1, VP3
- 15-25% lower TDP than 8800GTS
Some stuff seems a bit too good to be true so I'll guess we'll have to wait a bit longer till some more reliable specifications pop up.

IF this is even close to true (and that's a big IF), it smacks of a SLI in a single board design like the 7950. Each of those specs could be read as SLI 8800 GT specs:

dual 256bit memory paths
dual 128 shaders (think of it as dual GT+)
dual 1gb memory

You get the idea. Possibly (because of the lower TDP than the 8800GTS) they are using dual mobile chips, again like the 7950.

Of course this could be a fake composite of someone's "best guess" too!
