There has been some speculation as to just what the memory specifications will be that nVidia will use in it's upcoming NV30 release. In fact, the crew over at The Inquirer has come across some information that sheds some light on the subject! According to this report, NV30 will actually use DDR-II memory running at 1GHz. ATI Radeon 9700: Look out!


Since many of you still have doubts about the NV30, we are about to disclose the final part of the NV 30 puzzle -- its own, unique memory secrets.


As we previously said, the NV 30 will have only 128-Bit interface which is half the speed of the one used on the fastest gaming card around, ATi's Radeon 9700 PRO.


What we haven't yet mentioned is what kind of memory it sports and what is the actual clock speed of it. That's where the surprise comes in. Assuming that the NV 30 would use standard DDR memory was a big mistake. The NV 30 will use DDR II memory, the (r)evolutionary memory marchitecture. But there's even more.
