NVIDIA officially announces GeForce FX 5900 / 5900 Ultra GPUs

On May 12 NVIDIA officially announced the next generation of its GPUs previously codenamed NV35: GeForce FX 5900 and GeForce FX 5900 Ultra.

These will replace GeForce FX 5800 and GeForce FX 5800 Ultra and will offer the highest-performance NVIDIA’s graphics for desktop systems. With all of the above NVIDIA GPU roadmap is:

As you can see, GF FX 5800 disappear from roadmaps for the sake of NV35, having served as a stage to master new 0.13µm process.

NV35 family will feature 0.13µm process; up to 450MHz clock of 128-bit core; 256-bit memory clocked at up to 425MHz; up to 256Mb DDR/DDR2. Comparing to GF FX 5800, new GPUs have a doubled memory interface raising peak bandwidth from 16Gb/s to 27.2Gb/s. Besides, the new generation GPUs support Intellisample High-Resolution Compression (HCT) along with CineFX 2.0 engine and UltraShadow technology.

NV35-based cards will be separated into three product lines. Though packed with DDR-I only, they will offer considerable clock rates and AGP 8x/4x support.

Top-end GeForce FX 5900 Ultra will feature 256Mb RAM and 450/425MHz clock rates. Along with video connector, it will offer analog, DVI and TV outs. Expected in June, they should cost about $500.

$400 GeForce FX 5900 is also expected in June. It will mainly differ from Ultra by 128Mb memory and 425/425MHz clock speeds.

Finally, "mainstream" GeForce FX 5900 for $300 are to arrive in July. Featuring 128Mb memory and 425/400MHz clock speeds, these will lack video connector.

We’ll be posting the detailed review of NV35 along with benchmarks and actual benefits in the nearest future (not speaking of the newsfeed), so stay tuned!
