    70% of GT200's in Q4 are expected to be 55nm?

    Life is like a box of chocolates .....

    http://www.fudzilla.com/index.php?op...10499&Itemid=1

    We've told you that Nvidia said to its investors and the rest of the world that they are shipping 55nm in volume, but we were surprised to learn that Nvidia expects that more than 70 percent of GT200 chips shipped in Q4 to be 55nm.


    Nvidia plans to do this quietly, as it doesn’t plan to change the specification of the existing GTX 260 216 Shaders and GTX 280 cards. Nvidia counts on the Jack in the box effect and you might be surprised that the card you buy in December will come with a 55nm GT200 chip and likely overlclock better.

    The 55nm chip will be a bit cooler and smaller, and the first cards based on them are expected in early December.

    And ... Geforce GTX 260 192 reaches end of life

    http://www.fudzilla.com/index.php?op...10497&Itemid=1

    Nvidia has stopped producing the 65nm-based Geforce GTX 260 with 192 shaders and all GTX 260 that are coming from now on are 55nm and have 216 shaders.

    These cards will be available in early December and we are quite sure that they will overclock much better than the old ones. Nvidia doesn’t want to let ATI walk away without a fight and it's preparing a surprise or two for this month.

    The old GTX 260 with 192 shaders, the one that is clearly slower than Radeon HD 4870, is going for retirement and it will be replaced by the new GTX 260 216 shaders and most of these cards will end up with 55nm chips.

    Another tidbit ...

    On the other side, NVIDIA recently authorizes its partners to design non-reference GeForce GTX200 card on their own, which will help reduce price and improve marketing share. Relative products will be shown at the beginning of 2009 if everything goes well.

    The last two weeks have been hit or miss for me ordering the 260's. My supplier just now told me 0 stock for any 200 series, and showing no ETA for any as well. I am hoping these 270's are real near.....

    Possibly the hold-up is that the old GTX 260 65nm stock is running out now and they'll have to wait on the new 55nm GTX 260 cards to start rolling out.

    More GX2 news, the GTX 260 GX2 may be showing up in January of 2009....

    http://en.expreview.com/2008/11/19/n...up-jan-09.html

    Yesterday we reported that GT200 to go 55nm silently? Non-ref Card hits early 09, and what we’re even more interested is whether NVIDIA is going to unveil a flagship dual-GPU card after the processing upgrades to 55nm. It’s known that AMD Radeon 4870X2 has become the most powerful “weapon” in its important meetings such as financial report.

    As informer tells, NVIDIA has decided to release GeForce GTX260 GX2 to hit back in January next year. Anyway, we know the emergence of such a product is really the way to go.

    The World’s First Image of 55nm GT200 Exposed .....supposedly

    http://en.expreview.com/2008/12/02/t...0-exposed.html





    According to the image we have on hand, the mark of GT200b on GeForce GTX260 graphic card will change from 65nm “G200-103-A2″ to be “G200-103-B2″. The “B” means latest 55nm processing technology, and its production cycle happened during the 33rd week of this year (August 11th to 17th), only 5 weeks after G200-103-A2 which was manufactured in the 28th week. Therefore, obviously NVIDIA had prepared for a long time.

    Remark: The earliest version of GeForce GTX260 utilized GT200 with 192SP, and it was marked as “G200-100-A2″.

    The first of new GTX260 graphic cards will hit the market in January next year. The number of its stream processors will maintain as 216, and its memory frequency is unchanged as well. The reference and non-reference versions cards will be on sale at the same time. Thanks to application of new processor and the circuit designed by manufacturers themselves, the price will hopefully keep declining. The GTX260 card is already available at $264 at the lowest right now.

    More high-end products based on G200b, including GTX280 and dual-core 260GX2 will also emerge in Jan 2009.

    2009! crap. I just went from a 19" LCD to a 22" and the drop in FPS is noticable. The horsehair glue on my 8800 better hold a few more weeks....
