More NV35 rumours

  1. Just because we can't have enough, The Inquirer has posted a few "facts" from NVIDIA's upcoming NV35 part, some very bold claims that we suggest taking with a grain of salt but still a good read for a slow weekend...

    0 It's already up and running in Nvidia's labs!
    1 It wil use DDR - not DDR2 (!) memory because of the lower price of memory and PCB, more stability and availability in high volumes
    2 It will have 256 bit 400 MHz (may be more for ultra) DDR1 memory interface. And there will be cards with 256 MB of memory, m'boys
    3 It will have the same features set and probably near as damnit the same core clock.
    4 It will be as twice, and and sometimes a bit more than that, faster in raw shader power for 1.4 and 2.0 pixel shaders whereas the NV30 was not such a strong performer as we wished - so this aspect is pretty tuned up, lads!
    5 It shows from 1.5 up to 2.0 thimes performance of NV30 depending on the tasks and the final frequency specs.
    6. It will be definitely faster than RADEON 9800 PRO
    7. Other side specs like RAMDAC freq are the same as for NV30

    Looks VERY nice, although I am a little concerned of it just having DDR memory and not DDR2. The fact that it is faster than ATi's 9800 PRO is a great plus for NVIDIA, this could very well be the card that will regain their performance superiority over ATi; and with IBM working with NVIDIA for this, well, it speaks for itself doesn't it? All I can say is that ATi better be prepared for this beast of a card or they will suffer the consequences.
