    Looks like ATi's and Nvidia's chipset design teams are going to be mighty busy for the next couple of years.

    While ATI are known to be working on the 130nm process for the upcoming RV350 chip, they will not utilise
    the 130nm process in a high end part until R400, which is scheduled for the latter half of 2003. This being
    the case its likely that R500, which is probably being developed by the same team that produced R300
    (Radeon 9500/9700), will be targetted at the 90nm process being discussed here and is likely due for release
    within 18 to 24 months.

    Asus's 128mb GFFX card will be called the V9900, the spec's are the same as PNY's Verto, and BFG's Asylum Geforce FX cards.

    AOpen announces the next generation of VGA cards named Aeolus FX based on the nVIDIA Geforce FX chip.
    AOpen will launch its Aeolus FX in February 2003. Aeolus FX is the next generation VGA card with tremendous
    2/3D graphic power, a variety of functions and cinematic effects.

    Q&A taken from an interview with Nvidia's Product Line Manager, Geoff Ballew.

    Q: We all know by now that the GeForceFX is equipped with 128 bit DDR II. What exactly are the technical benefits of
    running 128 bit DDR II over 256 bit DDR?

    A: From a technical design complexity point of view, fewer pins are better. The wider the bus, the more pins are required
    on the GPU, the more traces you have to route across the board and the more often you have a memory granularity issue.
    A 128-bit bus requires fewer connections than a 256-bit bus. Of course, bandwidth is important too. For situations where
    you cannot raise your clock rates or cannot improve your data compression to get more effective bandwidth, going to a
    wider bus is a clear method to increase bandwidth. However, if you can run a narrower bus at a faster clock rate, you
    can get just as much raw bandwidth. This is exactly what we did with GeForce FX. We chose to use DDR2 because we
    could run it at 500MHz! Here’s a pop quiz question --Which is faster….half the width at twice the speed or twice the width
    at half the clock rate? Mathematically the raw bandwidth is the same for those two cases.

    This is good news, Nvidia are finally taking on ATi's AIW cards, the one area ATi have had pretty
    much to themselves.

    "We plan to offer a full line of Personal Cinema products at all price points to align with all our GPUs.
    Our first new revision was targeted for a mainstream audience, so that dictated the configuration.
    Thanks for your patience and rest assured we are working on it." (Geoff Ballew, Nvidia)
