All G80 GTSs had 96 SPs...
no he is right, there was a 112sp model
No mention of GDDR5. Wasn't the big rumor that NVIDIA was going to switch to it with this refresh?
That won't likely be until the new arch (40nm) is launched next summer.
They would have to do a lot more of a redesign to use GDDR5 on the current cards, even with a die shrink.
Yea I dont think the new 55nm ones with have DDR5, I wish they would, but I dont see it.
I'm personaly interested in the 280 GX2.....if it really exists. I want to see what Nvidia does with the GX2 this time around.
My next video card ... GTX 290
It's obvious there won't be a 280 GX2. The new GX2 will be a 55nm GPU and the first one will be the 270 GX2 and then later on the 40nm 290 GX2.
The 280 and 260 are way too hot and use too much power to be a dual GPU on a single PCB solution.
Aren't they going with two 55nm 260s for the GTX 295, which is the two GPU card?
From VR Zone:
GeForce GTX 295 & GTX 285 To Launch @ CES 2009
NVIDIA is preparing the GeForce GTX 295 and GTX 285 cards for launch on January 8th at CES 2009. According to the official data VR-Zone has seen, GeForce GTX 295 card has dual 55nm GT200 GPUs and 1792MB GDDR3 memories on 896-bit memory interface. The rest of the specs like number of shader processors and clocks speeds are listed as TBA. As for GeForce GTX 285, it is a replacement for the current GeForce GTX 280 card with a 55nm GT200 GPU with higher clocks. Therefore, GeForce GTX 280 cards will reach EOL in a month time. As for GeForce GTX 260, Nvidia has released design kits to the card makers and you should be seeing some self-designed cards in Q1 next year.
Link-adoodle Edit: can't link directly, but just go on their main page and it's there.
There is alot of false rumors and photos floating about right now, so I would take this with a pinch of salt. But usually when VR say it's a trusted source, it's pretty accurate.
1792mb GDDR3 memory is a bit too weird dont ya think? Still i'd like to see how it performs with that much memory
I can see it right now, GTX 285 totally owning the radeon X2
..that's 896MB *2, but the memory bus width looks a bit odd. It seems as if they're quoting an SLI rig instead of an X2 card.
It's the same for both, they state twice as much as what will actualy be effectively usable.
Yeah, I assume this is marketing speek for 2x 896MB on a 448-bit bus. At adequate memory speeds, this could be the sweetspot!
But will it be enough to compete with ATi's next generation ? :S
ATI is still getting trounced by Nvidia. It takes an ATI Dual GPU solution to equal a single Nvidia one.
ATI is in the back seat (unless you are talking about price).
I ain't talking about power.
What are you talking about?
I guess that from a price/performance viewpoint this new baby won't be getting good marks. Just like the 4870x2, it'll be the most expensive kit on the block while being somewhat faster than the competition.
Doesn't matter. I've had the GX2 since March and that means I can almost pretend that I had the card for one year when the 295 comes out. Long enough to warrant an upgrade!
I've had the 8800GTX since December 06
It's been a while.
Still can't decide on whether to upgrade to the new 55nm (or is it 40nm) GT200s... I want to see GDDR5 on a 512-bit bus.
