NVIDIA: GT-200 has 1 billion transistors

Posted on Friday, April 11 2008 @ 15:35:54 CEST by

Yesterday NVIDIA held a press conference in Munch regarding their Quadro workstation graphics cards but they also shared a couple of interesting new details about their upcoming high-end GPU.

Golem writes Jeff Brown from NVIDIA confirmed the existence of the next-generation GT-200 architecture and said this chip will feature a massive 1 billion transistors.

The last time NVIDIA talked about a 1 billion transistor GPU they said it would be out before the end of 2007 but it seems they've ran into some problems or perhaps they delayed the chip because of weak competition from AMD.

The latest GeForce 9800 GTX GPUs have about 754 million transistors so we wonder what the purpose of the extra 250 million transistors in the GT-200 will be. Some rumours indicate this chip may have 200 shader processors, which would be a significant update over the 128 stream processors of NVIDIA's latest GPUs.

Brown says more information about the GT-200 GPU will be released in May.
