Default NVIDIA GPU Roadmap Outline for 1H08

So as it looks right now, we should not expect anything out of NVIDIA in terms of next-gen technology at least until mid-2008. Don’t be confused by the new “98XX” model numbers as they don’t signify much more than the die shrink to 65nm. You might agree or disagree with this naming scheme, but the entire NVIDIA card market is getting confusing and this might at least help things be a bit not-as-confusing to consumers looking for a newer product, but most likely is being done for the big system builders needing “new” specs for new system builds.

Assuming that is true... curse them both! I'm for the first time been looking for a new generation of high-end cards to buy and Nvidia is playing holdout. I hope ATI's R700 creams whatever they eventually do launch.

ATI "said" their R700 will be faster than 8800 Ultra, now it that turns out to be 30% faster, and the product is cheaper than 9800GX2, we have a new winner

Where do ya get that info from, I wasn't aware R700 was already alive and being benched yet??

I was hoping that due to the modular design ATI could keep adding "cores" until they were close to double the Ultra's performance.

INQ reported that AMD/ATI had already spun silicon, but was as far as I had heard. Since the design was based on adding/subtracting modular "cores" as needed it would be much less complicated to add a few extra to boost performance. Or at least more so than usual.

Was linked to from here: http://www.theinquirer.net/gb/inquir.../31/r700-taped
