    impressive... most impressive

    Maybe Nitro, i think going past the number 5 for any heirachy in product lines is taking one more step toward letting consumers know that technology is fleeting and that maybe they should save their money and only upgrade when truly necessary...

    NV30 is NOT GeForce architecture....It's tile based..
    But that doesn't mean their marketing folks aren't retarded...They might keep the Geforce name because it's well known..TOO WELL KNOWN IF YOU ASK ME...

    Well it's starting to look like the marketing department at nVidia really don't have a clue...

    "* Sources revealed that NV30 will be known as GeForce 5 with continuation of the current Titanium lines. The availability of NV30 cards is expected to be early next year. However, NVIDIA is expected to move on quickly to the next generation NV35 to counter R350."

    Its not the nVidia marketing department that doesnt have a clue, its the people that are spreading rumours that you read on the internet. Wouldn't this come across as common sense?

    Evol I dont quite get the statement that nv30 isnt geforce architecture?
    what is geforce architecture?

    these share the same architecture, but modified
    NV10 was Geforce 256
    nv15 geforce2

    New achitecture and then modded to gf4
    NV20 GF3
    NV25 GF4

    now the nextgen arch to fit the standards of DX9 (and some it seems)
    NV30
    and i could prolly guess it will be fitted with 256bit memory bus and some other enhancements to make up NV35

    where did you get the idea of tile based rendering?
    here is some reliable NV30 info.. not much but nvidia has been keeping a tight lid on it so far..

    Naming it GeForce5 would be a bad step even thou it does sound like common sense. But we'll find out next week as it does officially launch at Comdex...

    yupp..
    until then those that havent seen the Nvidia mania day pics and info might wanna have a peek
    http://www.warp2search.net/article.php?sid=8222

    But the Geforce is a established name, and i cant recall anything bad assosiated with it... so why not go for it? =)
    one thing im a bit conserned about is that theyre sticking with a 128bit memory bus, while radeon has a 256bit one..
    so when ati goes DDRII they will have a upperhand in the bandwith department..
    Seems like the real strenth of NV30 is in the shaders..
    i suspect a nv35 would wield a 256bit bus.. would make sense.

    I just posted some info i read about OCing the radeon on the graphics card forum.. there seems to be a small gap between the GPU and the heatspreader, and some think its because ATis saving the radeons power for the NV30 launch..
    since if you make them connect you can OC the card quite alot.
