NVIDIA Skips G81, Goes Straight For G90

i got surprised by this , we arent getting new vid cards because they are delaying to be better expect a new 8600 ultra in 2008 :lol: 

btw first post i love this forum :D 

More about : nvidia g90

February 24, 2007 4:51:46 PM

NVIDIA is planning to produce 65nm G9x chips based on G80 architecture with much higher frequencies and powered with GDDR4.

It'll have a different name, but architecture same.... They should do G90 totally new, but whatever, it's just name.

More of a marketing gimmick..

Still it might have DX11c support :lol:

Good first post!

Of course they are going to announce this much faster card coming out now, because I just ordered an 8800 this morning. :oops: 

Oh well no sweat, I am sure I am still going to be satisfied with the 8800 for a good while. 8)

we should be, i mean 8800 cards have a lot of juice (opinion :)  )

too bad i cant afford those g80 babys here in my country the dollar its 2x i could only get a 7600gs for 400$ :roll: well i think i got to wait for a mid-high dx 10 card to get out :|

G90 is the 8900 GTX?

Well the Inq wrote it so you KNOW it's true. :lol:

This may be Nvidia's ace in the hole in case R600 wipes the floor with G80. Remaining complacent while holding the performance crown is a critical, AMDish mistake to make.

HHmmm sounds like the G70, errr.... NV47/48 launch. :twisted:

It'll be awhile if it's on a 65nm die shrink; good thing I just ordered my 8800GTX because it looks like ATI's going to take awhile, and Nvidia is in no rush to compete with themselves at the moment. :?

True, but 65nm should decrease power consumption and heat significantly. My X1900XT is only6 months old, hopefully by the time I decide to upgrade it the G90 will be available.

It seems like INQ has insider scoop that NVIDIA mulling the successor to G80 but still would like to produce GX2 if they managed to solve the thermal and power issues.

i think those things are too much power hungry and too big ,even my shoe its less big :lol:  imagine a 8800Gx2 min psu required a 650W 8O

cpu and ram are a good example they are getting less power hungry and getting more performance at the same time.

Right, it SHOULD decrease power and heat quite a bit, unless they really crank up the clocks. Seeing as ATI/AMD is still on 90nm and everyone is used to high power reqs and heat output, my guess is that they'll really push that clock up on their high end cards to create a bigger performance gap between themselves and ATI/AMD. Should be interesting.

AMD/ATi are at 80nm with their latest products (including the upcoming R600), not 90nm. Which is why the news of nV skipping 80nm is of interest.

waiting for amds r600, considering the fact that they hav continuously beat nvidia tech wise

Both companies constantly leap frog, and the R600 has to be better than the G80 seeing as it'll be released 5-6 months later. The GPU industry seems to move a lot faster than the CPU industry.

Yep, I meant 80, sorry, typo.

Yes, the two companies have leapfrogged one another in the past, the last really big jump was the 9700pro, but Nvidia has more than made up for that with their G80, which will have dominated DX9 and had a monopoly on DX10 for nearly 9 months by the time AMD answers. AMD will definately be playing catch-up for a time now. Bad news for those who like close competition, AMD is certainly getting it on all fronts lately. I, for one, hope they pull something out, both in the GPU and CPU arenas. Won't do the consumer any good to let Nvidia and Intel rest on their laurels.

the 9700 pro definitely shocked everybody, but is far from the last big jump. Do you forget the performance increase of the nv40 over the 9x00 series? I about fell out of my chair when I first saw the difference, and the g80 numbers over the previous generation reminded me of that.

Yes, the nv40 was a big jump, but ATI was much quicker in answering and managed to regain the lead by most measures. The 9x00's ruled the roost for quite some time, and now the g80 class is doing the same.
February 25, 2007 3:17:10 AM


If you compare the companies business, and I mean Intel, nvidia, and AMD stock prices over the last year, nvidia has beat the pants off the other two in stock price and earnings.

I almost turned down the offering due to my former preference for ATI products, bu the 7900 -8800 series of power AND quiet sold me.

Competition is good for both parties, here's hoping the R600 is a ballbuster from this 8800 GTX owner.

I truly believe amd's (and by association ati's) financials will be in the toilet until they are able to clear the books of the post-merger expenses. We all know that mindshare and recognition is earned at the high end, but not real dollars. And it pains me to say it due to my ati preference but even when ati retakes the performance crown at the high end, they usually still lag in the mainstream arena and that's what really pays the bills. That and they merged with the evil empire, and are now sinking with that ship sadly. :( 

Ok, getting off my soapbox now... :oops:
