[vr-zone] 55nm G92 cost 20-30% less, performance comparable to RV770

Nvidia G92 yield rate isn't good so per chip production cost is about $100. There are many variants of G92 out there and 8800GT is only one that Nvidia is selling at a loss. Nvidia has to shift to 55nm fast to lower cost. The new 55nm G92 is said to cost about $70-80 and performance wise will be comparable to RV770.

Yay, more G92 cards

Keep beatin that dead horse nvidia, beat it!

I'm confused. Can someone tell me for sure whether the new 9900s will be using the famed G200 or just a shrunk G92?

there was a news post a couple weeks ago saying that nvidia will be making the 9900s g92 cards.

That's a good one. TnB= Gir.

I don't get it, why isn't Nvidia releasing a new generation?

They've had a long time to get yields up, even at 55nm, so there shouldn't really be a cost difference between G200 and G92...

Looks like the RV770 will be a fair bit faster than the 3870, I really hope Nvidia doesn't pull more G92 stuff out to compete. It's pretty sad that the 8800GTX, a 1.5 year old card, is still the fastest on the market by a fair margin (single GPU wise).

Yield rates on new chips, especially with more transistors, are usually not as high as yield rates on old chips. Hopefully once they get good yields of G92 on 55nm process, they will feel confident enough to switch over to G200.

Nvidia's out to make money, if GT200 is the monster it's been made out to be, production costs will be stratospheric. If a 55nm G92 can truly match the performance of RV770 Nvidia will most likely sell various G92 variants that compete directly with RV770(both price and performance wise)... Then release GT200 @ $500+ as the king of the hill.

I'm not going to pretend to be an expert, however I can almost guarantee you that the cost associated with the jump from 256bit -> 512bit bus is huge (due to it's complexity).

Yeah it is getting old but for right now neither company needs anything new. You can have a mid to top end 88xx - 89xx series card or a 3870(x2) and play any game maxed out right now and for the forseeable future so there really isnt a need for a rush for improvement unless you are a benchie.

The only game out of course that you cant is Crysis, even though I can run very high, but no one will be maxing out this freak of a game until 2010. lol
