NVIDIA: Fermi to show up first as GeForce and Tesla

Posted on Friday, February 26 2010 @ 13:09:17 CET by

NVIDIA revealed Fermi will show up as the GeForce and Tesla first and it will definitely be aimed first at the highest-performance configuration. Lower-cost versions are expected to arrive for Quadro and Tesla sometime in the mid-part of the year.
“Fermi will show up as the GeForce and Tesla first and it will definitely show up first in the highest-performance configuration. Sometime in the mid-part of the year we will see a lower-cost version of that come out both for Quadro and Tesla,” said David White, chief financial officer of Nvidia, at Goldman Sachs Technology Conference.

Traditionally Nvidia released its Quadro graphics accelerators considerably later than the GeForce graphics cards for consumers, hence, there is no surprise that there will be no new Quadro at the launch of the GeForce GTX 400-series on the 26th of March, 2010. Still it is a surprise that Nvidia, perhaps, even decided not use its flagship GF100 graphics processor for the next-generation Quadro graphics boards. Of course, Nvidia does have very good positions on the market of professional graphics accelerators and can allow itself to postpone the launch of a new Quadro in case it has issues with software or thermals. However, Nvidia has had the GF100 (NV60, G300, GT300) chip for over six month now and the drivers should be more or less polished off.
