    Part of an article over at the Virtual Zone, originally reported by Japanese site Impress

    0.13 micron on 300mm wafers
    Die size of 200mm2 (estimated0
    Consume up to 35 watts

    The initial cost of NV30 is expected to be high due to the cost of 10 layers PCB and use of 500Mhz GDDR-II but its performance
    is expected to be much better than current R300. The high core clock of 500Mhz is attained due to new process technology
    (0.13 micron using copper wiring) as well as using new package technology (Flip chip package). The NV30 GPU requires a special
    copper heat pipe cooling unit to cool effective. The current memory frequency of 1Ghz could further improve another 40-50%
    (700-750Mhz GDDR-II) at some point next year. The cost of a NV30 card can be lowered further when shifted to 8 layers PCB in
    the future. The earliest possible retail version of NV30 cards (GeForce FX 5800 and 5800 Ultra) will be out by January 2003 from
    MSI and Leadtek.

    UK site Special Reserve is taking orders for Sparkle's GeForce FX graphics card at a discounted price of
    £329.99 inc (RRP £349.99 inc)

    Sparkle GeForce FX

    AGP GeForce graphics cards for PC

    • nVidia NV30 (GeForce FX) chipset
    • AGP 8x bus connection
    • Microsoft Direct X 9.0 Compatiable
    • 256 MB DDR2 Memory (>1Ghz Data Rate)
    • 500 MHz core clock speed
    • 1000 MHz (1.0GHz) memory clock speed
    • 8 rendering pipelines
    • 16 texture units per pipeline
    • 48.0 GB/sec memory bandwidth
    • TV out

    If this is correct, it seems good value for what is a GeForce FX Ultra shipping with 256mb of DDR2 memory.

    It won't just be Creative that will have Nvidia GeForce FX (NV30) graphics cards out by the end of the month, according
    to reliable sources in the distribution channel.
    By the third week of January, distributors told the INQUIRER that a number of different vendors will have units up for sale,
    suggesting the silicon is stable.

    The following preview is of an early GeForce FX sample that was hand-delivered to the Maximum PC Lab by an Alienware representative.
    Our full preview of Alienware’s new prototype machine and the GeForce FX can be found in the February issue of Maximum PC

    Hey, I've just posted the information as I've found it, blame Nvidia for dragging out this launch, not me.
    Anyway, all the best with the move, and I hope your wife and son are both on their way to a full recovery, good luck for 2003.
