[Fud] Nvidia works on new 55nm GT200 (Likely to launch in 09?)

Forgive me if this has been posted already or if its old news. I tried doing a search and did not find it so I wanted to share it, though I know I take its validity with a grain of salt.

Computex 08: Likely to launch in 2009

"Nvidia is working on improved version of GT200 done in 55nm and the new chip is most likely to come next year. GT200 can support GDDR5 but we believe that this will be Nvidia's last resort.


"The question remains if Nvidia really needs to push with a potential version of GDDR5 GT200 and this would only occur if ATI's R700, possibly called Radeon HD 4870 X2 bets Nvidia in performance crown match.

Nvidia cannot do its cool marketing without performance crown and therefore they will fight until their last breath. Some people suggeted that dual chip R700 card can beat Nvidia but we cannot confirm or deny these claims, as both are possible.

One thing is certain that Nvidia never sleeps."

Was anyone really not expecthing this to happen? The die size (yields), heat output, and power requirements pretty much dictated that this thing would have to undergo a process shrink at some point. Based on what they've done with G80, they'll probably call the 55nm the GTX360.
