Techwatch heeft een paar vragen richting het Design en Develoment team van Creative Labs in singapore gestuurt:
Will the 3DB GF GTS2 follow nVidia's reference design, or will it be slightly different (such as Asus' and Elsa's GeForce 256 products)?
"Since our first cards done with nVidia, Creative had always explored ways to reroute to optimise the card's performance. From end-user level, physical look may look similar, but at a schematic level, changes are definitely being made. This will apply to 3DB GeForce2 GTS as well."
Are their plans for a 64Mb version? Or a SDRam version?
"Creative will definitely look into the requirements of our target customers, the power gamers. Whether with the advent of new games, an additional 32Mb onboard card will deliver the extra edge. A SDRam version will not be able to fully tap onto the power of the GeForce2 GTS chipset, by still having memory speed limitation."
There you have it boys and girls, and straight from the horses mouth. So what does this mean? Who knows, but it is clear that there will not be an SDRam (ie, reduced cost) model (atleast under the Creative name), and it is possible that there will be a 64Mb variety, but to an extent texture compression nulls this.
Waarschijnlijk had ook niemand verwacht dat er een SDR versie zou komen van de GeForce2 en nu verwachten nog minder mensen dat .
