NVIDIA prepping 40nm GT216 for late Q2 2009?

Posted on Wednesday, October 22 2008 @ 00:15:42 CEST by


Nordic Hardware claims NVIDIA is currently working on at least three high-end GPUs. Soon we'll see the release of the GT206 (aka GT200b), which is basically a faster and cooler GT200.

The site writes we can expect a GT212 core in Q2 2009, this chip may be the first NVIDIA chip with GDDR5 memory but NH believes it's unlikely. Besides these two chips, NVIDIA is also said to be working on the 40nm GT216, this may be the firm's first DirectX 11 GPU:
Sources has informed us of another chips that is in the works. NVIDIA is also working on GT216 which is said to be the first chip to reach the market using TSMC's 40nm process. It will go up against AMD's RV870 chip and should hit the market at about the same time. That time is late Q2 2009, or early Q3. There are rumors that this chip will be DirectX 11 compatible, which would put it even with RV870 in terms of DX support.

If AMD gets their chip out faster, Nvidia could be in serious trouble.
