Default NVIDIA's new High end expected to arrive Q1 2008

The whole new high-end is codenamed D8E. Enthusiasts will have two chipsets on two PCB's with two huge power connectors. Most of you remember the 7950 GX2, and this will be a similar card. We still have to confirm if the chipsets on this card are two G92s, but we heavily suspect that Nvidia can enable the eight cluster of this 65nanometer chip and make the current 8800 GT chip even faster. If Nvidia does that, the 8800 GT chip will become an 8800 GTS 512MB, just with a touch of a flash tool.

Nvidia also plans a new single chipset high-end card for mid 2008 codenamed G100, or D9E.
Is this real? Nvidia is going to push back their next generation by 6 months??

D9E is the correct codename for the next generation of parts in the enthusiast catagory... but never heard of G100 till now.

Exactly, but they shoot themselves in the foor because a lot will just get a 8800GT and call it a instead of waiting even longer.

so, if my 7900 gtx is a little too slow for my needs nowadays, I should just get a 8800gt and wait it out?

Yes, but if you get that you won't get the new 500$ highend card hence it isn't smart from NV.


It teaches their highend consumers that second best is enough.

the 8800GT would be twice as fast as my x1800XT, yet I still don't consider it a worthy upgrade because what I have right now is sufficent
