We've been talking, these past few months, about NVIDIA moving the fabrication of its GPUs to a 55nm process. You also know, that secrets have an invariable habit of slipping out.
Techpowerup reports that Australian e-tailer, Austin Computers, has let slip claimed details pertaining to two upcoming NVIDIA SKUs, based on its anticipated shift to 55nm domain.
The first, is a refresh of NVIDIA's GTX 280, listed as the 55nm GTX 280+, powered by the GT200b GPU. This part is expected to stick with tried and tested GDDR3 memory, to the tune of 1 GB.
Perhaps more interestingly, is the mention of the GTX 350, fuelled by a GT300 GPU. The GT300, as it is named, is presumed to be a 55nm part and is listed as being married with 2 GB GDDR5 memory, utilising a 512-bit memory interface.
Q4 2008 is the date indicated for this marvel and could imply that NVIDIA has plans to throw AMD into a daze, sooner than expected.
Whatever the score, there is never a dull moment in GPU land.
