German tech site Hardware Infos claims the GT300 GPU from NVIDIA will arrive in Q4 2009 and that it will be a major improvement. The site claims the GT300 will offer the same kind of evolution as the NV40 (GeForce 6) and G80 (GeForce 8) GPUs.
The NVIDIA GT300 will be made on a 40nm process and will offer support for DirectX 11, additionally, it will also introduce CUDA 3.0.
Details about the GT300 are slim but the German site claims NVIDIA will start using Multiple Instruction Multiple Data (MIMD) units instead of Single Instruction Multiple Data (SIMD), which will result in more computing power. The clusters organisation will be more dynamic, there will be additional buffers and NVIDIA will use a crossbar for faster data communication.
Hardware-Infos further claims that the GT300 will feature radically different power and memory management.
It's said that the GT200 was just an improved G80 with better GPGPU computing, while the GT300 will be the real successor of the G80.

Too bad the N10x mobile 40nm is only going to be a GT200 derivative and not a 300 derivative. It'll take them 2 years to put the GT300 on a mobile platform, as is always the case. Means that notebooks with DX11 support are either going to come from the Red Team, or else not come for years.
