X-bit Labs reports NVIDIA is happy with the performance of its upcoming GeForce GF100 "Fermi" graphics card:
“We expect [Fermi] to be the fastest GPU in every single segment. The performance numbers that we have [obtained] internally just [confirms] that. So, we are happy about this and are just finalizing everything on the driver side,” said Luciano Alibrandi, the head of Nvidia public relations department in EMEAI region, in an interview with DonanimHaber web-site.
It was untraditional for Nvidia to demonstrate capabilities of its forthcoming graphics card months ahead of actual release. It is generally believed that Nvidia showed off its Fermi product in late September in an attempt to slowdown sales of its arch-rival ATI’s DirectX 11 graphics processors. The company yet has to show performance numbers of its next-gen graphics products. However, according to Mr. Alibrandi, the company is not only working hard on the new chip itself, but is also developing “perfect” drivers in an attempt to provide ultimate experience for the end-user.
“We just want to make sure it is as perfect as we want it to be in both graphics and computing [performance and quality],” said Mr. Alibrandi.
