Bij iXBT-Labs staat weer wat sappige info over nVidia's NV15. Volgens hun betrouwbare bronnen zal deze namelijk een kloksnelheid van 200MHz hebben, in tegenstelling tot de 160MHz zoals eerst werd aangenomen. Wel raar, want The Register meldde gisteren zelfs dat de NV15 juist slechts op 135MHz zou gaan opereren. Hopelijk zaten zij er flink naast (zou niet de eerste keer zijn ):
As you remember we posted (and then removed) a small preview on NVIDIA's upcoming GPUs - NV11 and NV15 in January 2000. NVIDIA's feedback was "awful" (they not only asked us to remove the article but claimed that the info was wrong). So, what do we have today?†1. Some very "honest" sites posted HOT info on NV11/NV15 - the same words, the same numbers, the same features as we had posted in preview. What does it mean? It means that the info from our sources was absolutely trueDo you understand that there was no new or additional info posted by the other sites on NV11/NV15? Do you want really new details? No problem:
2. No reaction from NVIDIA followed. Why? There is not much time left till the official release of the newest GPUs, so the "leaks" are quite possible. And what does it mean? It also means - we've posted the TRUE info on the upcoming chipsAccording to the same source (it is very important because it guarantees that this info is also true) due to improvements in technological process NVIDIA's new GPUs will use a core running at 200MHz (not 160MHz as stated earlier). Besides, the source let us know that NVIDIA would use 128-bit (24-bit internal) DAC code-named Picasso integrated into the same package with the core.That is not the entire info and we'll certainly post some new details before the official release - so, stay tuned!
