GeForce FX Q&A with nVidia posted

| Video Cards News | Posted: Jan 27, 2003 5:11 am

We have just posted our GeForce FX Q&A interview with nVidia where they were kind enough to answer our questions regarding their upcoming GeForce FX.

 

TT - Over the last few days several companies released specification and system requirements for the GeForce FX. Most notable is the 350 watt power supply requirement - will the GeForce FX actually require a minimum of 350 watts to operate in a stable environment or is this just a precaution?

 

nV - You hit the nail on the head. The card itself needs less than 75W but when combined in a typical enthusiast system with high performance CPUs, multiple hard drives or DVD/CD players, the total system requirements will tend to need a 350W supply. There may be individual configurations that could get away with less but when you buy your Ferrari you don't want to forget to fill up the gas tank.
