nVidia is preparing to launch their new 40nm GPUs at Computex 2009 which kicks off tomorrow.


The new 40nm GPUs will be mobile GPUs and not the high end monsters that most will be looking for this year. nVidia has finally decided to get on the DX 10.1 bandwagon though with these new chips.


According to Fudzilla ATi might miss the boat despite having 40nm mobiles out first. The issues at TSMC seem to work against them here as there is a shortage of the ATi mobile 40nm GPUs right now.

If you remember RV740 in mobile variation 40nm was out in March at Cebit, but so far we haven't seen a single notebook shipping with it.


Nvidia's 40nm notebook stuff is DirectX 10.1 and you can expect very good performance per watt, something that is very important for notebook users. Many Calpella notebooks will jump for Nvidia's 40nm as Calpella has to have discrete graphics to work as its P55 mobile chipset doesn't have any integrated graphics.
