Nvidia GT206 and GT212 Spotted in ELSA Roadmap

There has been some talk about Nvidia not releasing any new GPUs any time soon, but ELSA’s presentation slip could offer a peek at what’s next.

A recently leaked ELSA slide, if legitimate, indicates two new GPU’s scheduled to arrive on the shelves. The GT206 and GT212.

From what we can see in the leaked slide, the GT206 will be based on 55nm and the GT212 on 40nm. Pending the validity of this projection chart, the GT206 is slated to replace the GTX260 around the first quarter 2009, then with the GT212 replacing the GTX280 closer to the second quarter 2009.

Interestingly enough the GT212 is specified as TSMC’s 40nm manufacturing process. Other technical data and cost estimations are yet to be learned. If this leak indeed reflects what is to come, then we can more than likely expect more leaked data or publicized information shortly.

    Anything to say were coming in with something new. This doesnt show anything at all, at least until 40nm, and thats 1H not 1qtr

    40Nm?
    I already knew nVidia and ATi were both moving to that,so I'm not really suprised at all *shrugs*

    Is AMD's 45nm fab process come to come before or after TSMC's 40nm?

    Its funnt. They had the top cards for a long time. We got very little info before G200 was resleased, and by that I mean 5-6 months ahead. Now its seems, they cant stop all these "leaks" heheh

    eklipz this is just the gpu in house numbers... the product names are more likely going to be GTX270, GTX290 or GTX3x0

    Sounds like just a die shrink. Higher clocks same ammount of pixel shaders. The time to buy a GTX 280 has finally come. Thank you Nvidia

    If I were just a plain consumer who didn't know any better, I'd have thought that the GTX280 would certainly be faster than the GT212 (Based on the name).

    Except that GT212 will not be it's name =) I would expect GTX290. GT212 is chip code like GTX260-280 are GT200. Plain consumers won't know the new boards will be same as the GT212, they will see GTX290 and know it is faster then GTX280 (or should be).
