Penstar Systems heeft haar artikel over de 3D accelerators momenteel op de markt ge-update. Ook kijken ze vast naar de toekomst, zoals de NV-10 van nVidia. Goed artikel en handig om "up to date" te blijven. Check het artikel hier. Hier heb je een stukkie over die NV-10.
The TNT2 was not announced until it was near final silicon and features and performance could be accurately predicted. nVidia is doing the same thing with its next-gen product, the NV-10. Very little is known about this chip other than it will support onboard transform and lighting calculations. Reports have it that it is behind schedule and was originally supposed to be announced by early fall. It now looks like it will be announced sometime in December. Rumors state that it will have many advanced features including S3TC, environmental bump mapping, quad-texturing, and an advanced memory architecture that will support up to 256 MB of memory (OUCH!). It will be produced initially on the .25 micron process with speeds up to 200 Mhz, and will then be produced on the .18 micron process 6 to 8 months later with some optimizations (NV-11). This monster supposedly has over 15 million transistors. With this amount of transistors and the huge die size, it will cost a LOT of money and most likely require a lot of power, perhaps more than most AGP slots can give it.
