Nvidia Display Port card at IDF

Is this the G92?

Fudzilla has scored a picture of what possibly could be the G92 from Nvidia. In either which way, this is the first card to be publicly shown that features the new Display Port interface. AMD did show a graphics card at an event earlier this year and it was connected to a Samsung display, but there were no pictures of that card in question.


The alleged G92 card looks pretty basic and Fudzilla presumes that it's made on a 65nm processes due to the lack of a power connector on the card itself. It's very much a single slot card and the heatsink and some other parts have been taped over to try and hide the identity of the card.


If you've not read up about Display Port, then we can let you know that it will start to replace DVI from next year. Dell is apparently shifting over all of its systems to Display Port next year. The card in question features two display port interfaces and one D-sub.


The Display Port connector might look similar to HDMI, but it's a better connector in as much as it has to locking clasps and a release button. This means that it should be a much more secure interconnect that HDMI which has a habit of falling out if the display is moved around.
