NVIDIA GPUs to be made using 65nm process in a couple of years
PCUnleash posted the interesting information about NVIDIA´s future GPU roadmap. According to it, the company plans to increase the amount of transistors and reduce GPU size. (Well, that seems natural enough, doesn´t it?)
GeForce PCX will utilized Intel´s technology implemented into Alderwood/Grandsdale, namely PCI Express 16x. And GeForce PCX 5950 products will be based on GeForce FX 5900.
- GeForce PCX 5750 (GeForce FX 5700)
- GeForce PCX 5300 (GeForce FX 5200)
- GeForce PCX 4300 (GeForce4 MX)
NVIDIA PCI Express cards will operate via AGP-PCI Express bridge, a duplex High Speed Interconnect (HSI) with up to 4GB/s throughput.
The NVIDIA products will work via AGP interface, so a bridge to PCI Express will be required. On the other hand, ATI PCI Express products will have PCI Express interface implemented making such bridges obsolete.
