ATI RV870 GPU to be 40nm

Posted on Tuesday, August 12 2008 @ 01:06:54 CEST by

FUD Zilla believes AMD's next performance GPU - the ATI RV870 - will be a 40nm part.
The next generation chip codenamed RV870 is going directly for 40nm and not 45nm as many have expected. This might be the first time in history that GPU manufacturing process actually gets smaller than the CPU one. Intel is at 45nm with CPUs, while AMD has yet to get there and 45nm is the smallest they can do through most of 2009.

The new GPU has a lot more transistors and a higher clock, but we are currently not aware of the main architecture of the chip. This new baby comes in 2009, but it might just happen less than a year after the RV770 debut.
