GeForce 9900 GTS/GTX not far away

1B transistor GT200 GPU

| Video Cards News | Posted: Apr 25, 2008 10:47 am

Some more tidbits are emerging in relation to NVIDIA's next-gen GT200 graphics chip. Though it was originally thought this GPU would be restricted to the top-end models, it's now becoming apparent that we'll see GT200 filter through to the slightly lower spec'd/mid-range next-gen cards.

 

 

According to VR-Zone, GT200 will initially show up in the form of the GeForce 9900 GTX and slightly cut-down 9900 GTS cards; the former to seperate itself with a 512-bit interface and higher clockspeeds from the latter which runs a 448-bit interface.

 

It has been revealed at an earlier time that GT200 is made up of around one billion transistors, and sources point to a most likely early July launch, timed to counter the next-gen Radeon (RV770) GPUs which are expected to launch in late May/early June.
