the Fermi GPU is running 6.2 times faster, whether you look at interactions per second, or frames per second. Nvidia says that Fermi can run double precision up to 8x faster.

That means real world improvements up to 6.2 times faster than the previous gens cards!!!

Gaming vs Computing.

Even the article questions it.

The 6.2 number translates to gpgpu usage, not games

I know this from first hand that the Fermi is up to 6.2 times faster in resolution 3840x2160 with AA enable otherwise it doesn’t perform that good because the CPU is bottleneck the card.

Only on the N-body game tho

Right but what about multimedia and games. Hmmmmm. If this gpu cost around $800 just for the consumer variant then sales will be very poor while the version intended as a Tesla will cost a fortune. I bet one could buy several city blocks in Detroit for the price of this card.

actually they should bundle shares with this card just to make the price appealing

seriously, if youve been following trends inside the tech industry you'd already have a sneak preview of the fermi cards.

"remember the first phenoms?"

delayed product = fail

if it were 6.2 times faster at anything that matters, they would have engineering samples floating around all over the place to curb the 5xxx series sales. i don't believe it.

No need to, as the lack of supply is taking care of that already.

lack of supply is also getting a higher price too. the lack of anything credible has to be taking its toll on prospective buyers since nVidia is so tight lipped on the whole thing.

Actually, this is good news if true.
While games wont see this kinda perf increases, all nVidias plans outside of gaming look much better

If nvidia can get this to work with windows media encoder and pcsx2 then I'll look for a second job just to get it.

The GF100 will outpace the Radeon HD 5870 as the top single-chip graphics product of all time, assuming AMD doesn't release anything else in the interim, between now and January.


And with the dual chip card (codename Gemini?) taking on the 5970, there could be an interesting new year in store.

Problem with a gemini is, the 5970 is already power constrained, thus its lower clocks.
G100 is supposedly a 225+ watt card, so this leaves 75 watts for PCI compliane, minus the x2 scenario.
If in th best case scenario, the G100 is 20% slower than the 5970, a gemini card wont be any better due to power and cpu limitations

Do they mean their previous gen or the previous gen top end ? Because if its the first then fair enough but if its the later then they dont really know what the previous gen will have been by the time they actually release it :D
