    Now, would it be safe to assume that the NV36X will be a low end card when the NV40 or NV45 are released ?
    Kind of like the GF4 ti4800 vs. the GF FX series...

    Seems nice :P I can't wait until like 4 years to see what card there is. Like what GHZ will we be up to. Will we hit 10GHZ?

    Nvidia noted that where the cycle time (the time from a design spin to silicon) was less than 10 weeks for 150nm processes, the cycle time for 130nm is presently at, or above, 14 weeks - this would mean that a part that requires two respins would be in the order of 6 months from initial tape-out. They also said that a product intended for release later in the year has taped out at IBM and they are expecting to receive the first qualification sample in the next few weeks.

    Update: This has turned out to be the NV36 and not the NV40.

    These are Nvidia's core/memory targets for its next generation NV40 graphics chipset.

    550MHz-600MHz Core
    700MHz-800MHz Memory

    I would say that the FX is the lower line compared to the TI4800 :D :D
    <font color=orange>AMD Athlon XP 2500+ Barton (166*11=1883MHz) -|- Asus A7N8X Deluxe Rev2.0 -|- Corsair XMS PC3200 512 MB RAM 2T-3-3-6 @DDR333 -|- Leadtek A250 TD GF4 TI 4400 300/630 -|- 40 Gig Quntaum Fireball AP+ -|- 52x Samsung CD-ROM Drive -|- SB Live Digital 5.1 -|- Antec SG case w/350 Watt Power-Up PSU</font>

    i would have to agree, considering the crown jewls of the FX line (5800ultra) was a dud, the FX5900&ultra owns over ati on all the benchmarks i seen(not by alot its still close), hehe but 5900 was a act of desperation on nvidia's part...was pushed way ahead of schedual.

    Looks like the NV40 will be the ticket for me.

    :hammer:

    FX5900 - 3DMark2001 [20,566] - 3DMark2003 [7,281] - Aquamark3 [56,694]
    Ti4400 - 3DMark2001 [16,028]

    In order of decreasing reliability

    Supports FP32, FP16 and FX16 natively. Whether there is any performance difference between FP16 and FX16 is unknown, and whether there are any truly non-FP32 units is also unknown.
    175M transistors, 600Mhz core clock, 1.5Ghz effective GDDR2 (Samples already shipped to nV - 16 memory chips per board)
    Not taped-out yet, or if it did, tape-out failed. To tape-out sometime this month.
    8 pipelines, Speculation: probably 8x2 and no 16 zixel trick (not worth it with 4x+ AA, which is really a minimum with 48GB/s of bandwidth) - Maybe such a bypass path for low-end models (NV42/NV43)

    This means Christmas avaibility has IMO become absolutely out of the question. Best we can hope is for-developer documents for Comdex, or around then. And that's not a certainty.

    What are FP32, FP16, FX16 and FX32?

    FX5900 - 3DMark2001 [20,566] - 3DMark2003 [7,281] - Aquamark3 [56,694]
    Ti4400 - 3DMark2001 [16,028]
