Information about NV18 / NV28 GPUs from Chaintech

Referring to the Korean Chaintech office, Korean DarkCrow published photos and specs of new GF4 MX440-8X cards with AGP 8 support: standard A-G480 and low-profile LA-G482.

A-G480 specifications:

  • GF4 MX440-8X (NV18)
  • 275 MHz core clock
  • 64MB, 128-bit (FBGA 4x32), 256 MHz
  • D-Sub / TV-Out / DVI / VIVO (optional)
  • 3Deep, WinDVD 4.0 software, S-Video cable

LA-G482 specifications:

  • GF4 MX440-8X (NV18)
  • 250 MHz core clock
  • 64MB, 64-bit (TSOP 8x16), 200 MHz
  • D-Sub / TV-Out
  • 3Deep software

    According to the photo, A-G480 features an unusual heat-sink. This design, called "Gas-Turbine Technology", is claimed to reduce GPU heating by 30%! Most likely this is due to a new cooler design, not due to stylish "a la Batman" cover.

    Chaintech´s closest plans include the release of graphics cards on new GF4 Ti4200-8X (NV28): A-GT281 and A-GT280.
