Angry G80 Dual Core GPU!!!!!

I am already kicking myself in the *ss for buying the 7900gt!
G80 will be in time for launch in June during Computex and the process technology is likely to be 80nm at TSMC. In the recent statement, NVIDIA has said that they will be backing the 80nm "half-node" process by TSMC where it allows reduction of die size by 19%. We have previously mentioned that G80 is likely to take on the Unified Shader approach and supports Shader Model 4.0. G80 is likely to be paired up with the Samsung GDDR4 memories reaching a speed of 2.5Gbps. As for ATi, the next generation R600 is slated for launch end of this year according to the roadmap we have seen and the process technology is 65nm. It seems that the leaked specs of the R600 that surfaced in June last year is pretty likely.

According to Xpentor, NVIDIA G80 will make ATI stumble on April. Quad SLI itself can be implemented on a single card with two chips solution because it will carry the first dual core GPU ever with the support of DirectX10 and Shader Model 4.0. The development of G80 is also mentioned as being running very intensive since NVIDIA's acquisition over ULi.
65nm
64 Shader pipelines (Vec4+Scalar)
32 TMU's
32 ROPs
128 Shader Operations per Cycle
800MHz Core
102.4 billion shader ops/sec
512GFLOPs for the shaders
2 Billion triangles/sec
25.6 Gpixels/Gtexels/sec
256-bit 512MB 1.8GHz GDDR4 Memory
57.6 GB/sec Bandwidth (at 1.8GHz)
WGF2.0 Unified Shader

Ouch!!!

WHOA!!! 64 shader piplines! 1.8GHz GDDR4 Memory! 800MHz Core! 57.6GB/s Bandwidth! MY GOD! im getting kinda aroused here....

EDIT: for those of you who take everything seriously, im was just joking about the aroused part....

SHIIT! Nice, I think that I'm going to wait until that series comes out before I buy. Depending on the price I'll either buy the 7900GT or the 8800GT.

G80 will not be based on unified shader:

R600 will:

I'd say ATi would, since theirs is coming out later, they'll have more time to tweak it.

Well I can try to sell my video card while I still can it's still one of the best cards out there but I can easilly see the value of it dropping by half in a year.

Yeah, fair enough.

I didn't think that the release of G80 would be so soon. Now I dunno if I should buy a 7900GT, or just buy a 6600/GT and wait for G80.
