K-Bench heeft van haar 'bronnen bij nVidia' wat informatie weg geplukt over de specs van de NV11 en NV15 chip van nVidia. Als onderstaande verhaaltje klopt zal de NV15 3 keer sneller zijn dan de huidige GeForce (NV10) en 400MHz DDR Ram gebruiken:
According to the close source of Nvidia, NV15 is going to be 3 times faster than current GeForce256(NV10)
The source told us that NV11 is at least 1.5 x faster than NV10 and it is targeted at budget customer solutions against NV15.
NV11 has 2 texel/pixel, 2 pixel/clock rendering pipeline structure and supports both SDR & DDR SDRAMs. Memory clock of SDR SDRAM version of NV11 will be 166MHz.
As an option, NV11 card with additional DAC can do dual display like G400's DH.
In this case, primary displays at 2048x1536 @60MHz, secondary displays at 1600x1200 @100 is feasible.
NV15 will be 3 times faster than GeForce256 with 400MHz of DDR SDRAM. It has 2 texel/pixel, 4 pixel/clock rendering pipeline structure and supports 720P HDTV. NV15 can be configured with SCA(Scalable Cooperative Architecture) that 1 AGP + 1 Virtual AGP(PCI) can be set. 90 frames / second at 2048 x 1536 x 32bit color is expected, the source said. This chip will be manufactured with 0.18 micron process and will be available in late spring.
High-end version of NV15, NV15GL will be released also. NV15GL card will have 128MB of DDR SDRAM(400MHz) and uses AGP Pro 4x interface.
