    Hi Guys

    I have heard rumours that nVidia are working on an NV30 chipset that feature AGP 8x and therefore will be able to transport data even faster on motherboards that already have support for AGP 8x.

    Have you guys heard anything about this?

    I am confused :confused: NV30 (Replacing the geforce) will be a card that can utilize the 8X AGP port on the motherboard, and the mother board will give more bandwidth! I dont know if this helps.

    Ok guys... NV30 will not be a "GeForce" card ! It is the NEW card coming in December that will have a different architecture and will be much faster than any Geforce4 ti 4600(NV25U) ......possibily even faster than the new ATI Radeon 9700 PRO !

    It is the first new card design from nVidia that the ex-3DFX guys have worked on / co-designed !

    It will have 128-bit color precision ! (same as ATI RADEON 9700 PRO) And we all know that Carmack wanted extra colour depth for fancy effects in Doom 3.

    It will be multi-gpu compatible, as were all GeForce cards since the GeForce2GTS, however it will NOT have up to 7 gpu's as rumored. It will have "only" one.

    NV30 - The when of it all

    Anandtech has a story on the NV30 roll out. Nvidia seems to want to set to record straight. The company be sticking to TSMC, it says it will have the NV30 by December, and a roll out probably in October, but Anand admits that ATI has a lead with the R300 and could capitalize on it heartily despite the possibility that NV30 will be ready for end of year. The article also points out some of features that Nvidia says will make NV30 a lot better than the R300.

    Damn!

    Guys, how wicked will it be to see the NV30 in action. One thing though, I'm wonder if developer's have begun planning or creating programs to fully utilise the power of the NV30 GPU.

    E^vol
    Where did you hear about the NV30 possibly having 7 GPU's. I think that person that told you must have definitely been high on something.... :p

    Jokes.... :cool:
