ELSA held a channel meeting in China and as usual nothing in Asia stays a secret. Based on the slides most of the things they talked about weren't that exciting, except a slide that unveils the firm's upcoming enthusiast products.
Based on the slide, NVIDIA's next high-end part will be the GT212. This GPU is expected in Q1 2009 and the slide says it will be made on a 45nm process, although there are some rumours that it might be a 40nm part.
The roadmap unveils NVIDIA has plans to release yet another GeForce 9800 GTX, the new part will be called GeForce 9800 GTX+ HDV but the slide is too blurry to make out what the new features of this card will be. I assume it has more shader processors and probably some other performance improvements to make the card more competitive.
Finally, the slide also reveals the GT206. This GPU is a 55nm version of the GeForce GTX 260 and it should arrive in Q4 2008.

Too late. By the time Christmas comes and goes, most folks will have 4870x2's who are in the high end market.
Because it's a 200 core, it will only be DX10. By spring, folks will be sampling DX11. Too late on all fronts.

It's not Christmas yet bitchface.
Nvidia are hoping to release these cards before Christmas for end of year sales. Still, I'm in no hurry to buy a GT206 core.
GT212 might be more my style, or just voltmod my 8800 GTX so I can hit 700 MHz on the core. Should do me until the GT300 is out.
