Default More NVIDIA Nvidia GT300 Details - Fermi Codename Revealed

The codename is Fermi, after the renowned nuclear physicist, Enrico Fermi, the man behind Chicago Pile-1, the very first artificial nuclear reactor. While AMD have gone for green, Nvidia have gone explosive - perhaps indicative of their respective strategies.

It is clear that Nvidia are concentrating as much, if not more, on parallel computing rather than gaming. GT300 is expected to be a revolution, rather than the evolution Cypress was. GT300 will be large and hot, and is rumoured to be faster than the HD 5870. It is unknown as to how the GT300 will compete with Hemlock (5870 X2) - although Fudzilla suggest a dual-GT300 version is being planned. That could mean - a) A significantly cut down version of GT300 x 2; b) GT300 is more efficient than we are expecting; c) World's first widely distributed >300W TDP card. (Asus Mars is the only one thus far, though it is very much a limited edition) or d) Nvidia have to wait till the next half-node die shrink, like they did with GT200.
