G84 is the next NVIDIA chip

| Posted: Dec 6, 2006 9:23 pm

With NVIDIA's G80 chips now released in the form of the top-end GeForce 8800 Series cards, there's already word spreading of "G84", this also being a DirectX 10 based GPU but for the mid-range market. According to the Inquirer it should pop up around the end of March next year.

 


NVIDIA is working like beavers to expand its DirectX 10 capable generation. It had and still has a great success with its expensive line of G80 chips known as Geforce 8800 GTX and GTS, as they are selling like veritable hot cakes.

 

Well they are hot cakes and there's no competition at the moment. But the DirectX 10 capable generation needs a mainstream contender and that's what G84 is all about. We only know that the chip is derived from G80 and will have less real pipelines and of course will end up smaller.
