Post G92 gunning for 800 MHz+ clock

Source

"When it comes to performance, even if this chip was just a shrunk-down G80, the clock would give significant benefits in performance thanks to increased clock of the GPU itself. Luckily, for future owners, that is not the case - Nvidia reworked quite a lot of things from the original marchitecture to make this thing work faster.

We managed to learn that GPU clock has surpassed 800 MHz and that company plans to deliver the boards depending on yields they will get. So far, launch clock could be anywhere between 800 and 850 MHz, with 812/3, 824/5 and 830/5 being usual suspects. This time around, there is no hurry and Nvidia knows they can afford the launch of GTS/GTX and wait for R680 to show up and launch the Ultra version as a counter attack.

There is quite a lot Nvidia has to support with the G92 series of chips, and what yours truly wonders the most is will the G92 support just Open GL 3 (Long Peak), or will the chip support Mount Evans as well (upgrade of Long's Peak). Of course, DirectX 10.1 is also a moot point at this time, and worst case scenario would be support for DX10.0+, but somehow we don't feel that source was right on target.

Overall, one thing is certain - G92 will deliver significant performance boost at 8800 price standpoint."

Sounds like AMD needs to pick one thing and stop trying to do 2. They're getting stomped on both sides, gpu and cpu.

I wonder how ATi's multi-core R700 will do...

They won't be getting stomped in the CPU area when K10 releases.

In fact, they're not really getting stomped right now in the CPU area. They don't have the performance crown, but they're often better in price/performance.

what are the nanometer specs on those k10's?
intels 45nm quads are coming out in the next 6 months

Agreed.

With AMD's K10 along with the R700 series, they'll give Intel competition.

they will be 65nm. Though smaller die size does not necessarily mean better.

The smaller size does bring production costs down as they get more chips out of the wafers.

Intel's 45nm process should guarantee higher clock speeds, lower power consumption, and higher overclocking potential.

And the first 45nm Quad core extreme edition will be out on Q4 2007 (About 2-3 months from now)

The mainstream 45nm Quad and 45nm Dual core will be out on Q1 2008
