Was the 3870 1.5-2x faster than the 2900XT? no.
and that was a 25nm die shrink.
Nvidia’s new GPU generation, we hear, will also be 1.5 to 2 times faster than the current technology.

Nvidia's new generation GPU is not going to be just die shrink.

Yes, and trust me, I'm lol'ing a lot harder at you right now than you are at me.


Have you even heard of the 9-series?

The 9 series wasnt anywhere near 1.5x - 2x faster than the 8 series. The 9 series was a joke and the only "new" thing it brought to the table was the GX2.

Wow, I'm triple loling now because the 9 series cards had no die shrinks and wasn't even a full series release only a couple of cards to hold everyone over until the 200 series (also to make more money). Even so, even you aren't blind enough to pretend the 9800 GX2/GTX didn't have any improvements over the 8 series.

*Awaits more fanboy comments*

Thats exactly what I'm saying. He asked me if I really thought Nvidia would release a new series that just just a die shrink of the last series.

To which, I said: OF COURSE THEY WOULD, they have before, all the 9-series was was a die shrink of the 8 series.

Serious question for you.... Are you an idiot?

or are you just 12 years old?

Not only was the 9-series JUST a die shrink of the 8-series, (they went from 90nm to 65nm, but still had 128 shaders, and if you look at ANY BENCHMARK, the 9800GTX performed nearly the same as the 8800gtx)
But it was almost a complete series, the only thing they didn't have was 9400s.
and if you look at newegg, you'll see that the prices on the 9-series cards range from $99 to $569 dollars.

Seems like a pretty full series to me.

And the 9800GX2 was just a sandwich card. there were no improvements to the core.

To hold everyone over, they were just rebranded 8800GTS 512Mb!

Jesus, calm down, buddy, these are just video cards. No I am not an idiot but I don't study these things night and day. However I do not think 3 cards hardly qualify as a full series release.

Also, I was under the assumption both the 8 series and 9 series were 65 nm. Am I wrong?
