    GeForce 9900 GTX & GTS Slated For July Launch

    The first 2 models from the GeForce 9900 series will be 9900 GTX and 9900 GTS instead of 9900 GT we reported earlier. It seems Nvidia has decided to launch them as early as July to counter RV770 and steal the performance crown away. Nvidia has earlier confirmed GT200 existence and revealed that the GPU has about 1B transistors. Our sources are suggesting a 512-bit memory interface with GDDR3 memories for GeForce 9900 GTX using P651 PCB and a 448-bit memory interface for the GeForce 9900 GTS.

    More info:

    Today Nvidia released a statement with changes to their G9 roadmap. This announcement includes specs of the GT200 based cards as well as their real names. Release dates for these cards and some low-end cards have also been released.

    The GT200 core will be placed in the 9900GTX and 9900GTS, because of this the 9800GTS has been canceled. The major difference is that the GTS will have two less memory chips. The GT200's build consists of 240 shaders, 32 ROPs and 120 TMUs. The 9900GTX has a 512-bit bus and up to 2200MHz GDDR3 memory. The 9900GTS, due to the two memory chips being removed, has a 448-bit bus and 896MB memory buffer

    These cards are expected to be released in July 2008. The low-end cards, the GeForce 9600GSO, 9500GT/GS and 9300GE/GS, are expected to be released between May, June, and July.

    The GT200 is quite an interesting card due to its specifics as it only has 16 shaders less then the 9800GX2 which means it could perform as well or better then its predecessor. With production of the 9800GX2 to end in June, this could mean that the 9900GTX is truly stronger then the 9800GX2 and Nvidia is making rooms for its tangle with AMD's R770.

    It is a good thing that I have waited before purchasing my new cards :)

    I guess nVidia was just waiting for info on AMD's 4800 series before dropping their bomb. It will be an interesting showdown.

    I got a BFG 9800 GTX OCX card.. a very nice and powerful card! If you always wait for the next and best thing to come out you will never upgrade anything. The good thing about this is that those of us that got the cards I have..now have 100 days to step up from the purchase with the difference paid which is great..another good reason why BFG is better than eVGA ;)

    Don't eVGA have the same system? Only it has been out longer?

    Awesome news. I'm going to bump up when they come out -- and buy a new monitor so I can play above 1024 with a decent display.

    are you sure about that? if im not mistaken, bfg will take your credit of the current retail value of your older card, not what you paid for in their trade in program. for example: if you paid 359 for an 8800 GTS 512 three months ago and today they sell for 259, you lost 100 bucks. whereas evga will give you full credit for what you paid for within their step up program. i traded in my old 8800 GTS i paid for 359, paid 10 bucks shipping, and now i have a new 9800 GTX virtually cost free.

    120 TMU'S with only 32 ROP'S, huge gap there. I will believe it when I see it. If its all true then you shall become my avatar. Look to the left. WHAHAAA VRROOOM. XTREEME BOY, BURRP! EXCUSE ME.

    Will definitly slap a 9900 GTX onto this system, as planned (well depening on pricing anyway)

    Regardless if this is news or just random bull****, it's in my own roadmap of upgrades :p

    With the specs below the chip would be a size of a half-dollar and use probably 300W for the chip alone.

    More resalistic specs are 160-180 Shaders, 20-24 ROPs, and 80 some TMU's.

    b4 it was like 16 ROPs and 64 TMU's? so why not 32 ROPs and 120 TMU's 240 shaders wouldn't be so bad :p

    It better be 32 ROPs. Been waiting so long for a real powerhouse release for DX10.

    Hmm..good supposed specs but I don't see how the GTX will have 240 shaders. Surely it will be 256 for the 9900GTX and 224 for the 9900GTS - otherwise 'only' a 16 shader gap wouldn't justify a £100 - £200 or so price difference?? (going by 8800GTS G80 and GTX original prices)

    Really will just have to wait and see though.

    HyBrId

    P.s. Or do they mean 240 Shaders for the 9900GTX and 224 for the GTS.. ?? Either way, would be a substantial improvement oer 9800GTX's imo.

    Maybe buying an Evga card earlier this month will payoff.
