GeForce 9900 GT and GTX to use GT200 GPU

Posted on Monday, Mar 31 2008 @ 23:30 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Rumour has it that NVIDIA will release its GT200 GPU in the third quarter of this year. This chip will be used in two graphics cards: the GeForce 9900 GT and GeForce 9900 GTX:
GeForce 9800 GX2 and GTX will have a short lifespan since they will be replaced in a couple of months time. Nvidia has positioned GeForce 9900 GTX to replace 9800 GX2 and this gave a clue that a single GT200 card will actually outperform a dual G92 card. Likewise for GeForce 9900 GT, outperforming and replacing 9800 GTX. CJ revealed to us that Nvidia will have a hard time fitting GT200 onto the PCB since the GPU is gonna be large and very power hungry so we can probably assume it is still 65nm based. The PCB for GT200 will be P651.
