A while ago, we reported that the nVision conference is cancelled. Earlier today, nVidia announced its smaller-scale event, counterpart to Intel's IDF.
We managed to get a confirmation from three independent sources - nVidia's 2.4 billion transistor answers to RV870 and Larrabee is not just taped out, but A1 silicon is in Santa Clara.
As GT300 takes shape, we managed to learn one tidbit more: the die size of this 2.4 billion transistor monster. We are surprised, to say the least.
With the news that ATI delayed the RV870 part to 4Q'09, there are reasons why Santa Clara camp will be happy. Brace for news folks: GT300 is coming before the RV870.
ATI claimed that 256-bit memory controller is justified with the GDDR5, doubling the bandwidth from GDDR3. But what happens if nVidia launches a 512-bit controller with GDDR5?
