Via AnandTech kwam ik op deze site die een artikel heeft geplaatst over de nieuwe NV10 chip van nVidia. In het artikel wordt gezegd dat de NV10 al zo'n beetje in productie is gegaan:
As a good reporter I couldn’t let NVIDIA go unquestioned about their NV10 product even though I suspected I wouldn’t get a straight answer. My simple question? Is NV10 a chip or chipset? To my surprise Derek Perez answered that it was indeed a single chip. This is important because NVIDIA made a special press release saying that they would have on-chip geometry before the end of the year. Clearly you can still be "on-chip" if you are using a chipset but that definitely would be a prevarication on NVIDIA’s part. This is indeed quite an accomplishment to combine a minimum TNT2 level of performance and geometry on the same chip. I also questioned Chris Hoberg about their fab process and she informed me that NVIDIA won’t be utilizing .18 micron this year, and that .18 micron will be used for another product in first quarter next year. This is very contrary to almost every NV10 preview on the net that was doing more speculation that actual fact finding. NVIDIA’s most advanced process right now is .22 micron. Since NV10 is now in production this is undoubtedly the process they are using. Also of note is the fact their CEO mentioned in the quarterly conference call that there will be two product announcements coming soon. Obviously one is the NV10. I’m curious as to what else NVIDIA has up their sleeve.
Zeker de moeite waard om dit dit 3 pagina tellende stukkie te lezen.
