Nvidia tapes out G70 silicon

Head to head with R520 'Fudo'

By Fuad Abazovic: Tuesday 19 April 2005, 13:06
WE JUST LEARNED that Nvidia taped out its next-generation graphics chip codenamed G70.

Whispers say that it's in good shape and that the first silicon is up and running nicely. Our pro-Nvidia sources believe that it will end up faster than ATi's R520, but ATiers will pooh-pooh that claim, for sure.

We don't have much information about specifics but we strongly believe that the G70 will be released very close to the R520's shipping date.

And we're told that this should happen sometime in the autumn but we don't always believe what we're told. Shipping and announcement dates have slipped too many times in the past so we like to take a large portion of salt with our regurgitations. Engineering is hard work and is very unpredictable.

We will fill you in when we learn more. ¬Ķ

Sweet! Pooh-Pooh ATI
