Nvidia is planning to launch its next-generation high-end GT300 GPU in the first quarter of 2009. The GPU will be manufactured under a 55nm process, according to sources at graphics card makers.
The company is also planning to showcase two GT200-based cards at CES 2009, which will start on January 8.
The GeForce GTX 295 features two 55nm GT200 GPUs, while the GeForce GTX 285 will have a single GT200 GP, noted the sources.
The core frequencies of the two cards will be 10-15% faster than Nvidia's previous generation cards, while power consumption is 10-15% lower.
Nvidia declined the opportunity to respond to this report saying it cannot comment on unannounced products.
What!?!?!?! I thought GT300 was supposed to be fabbed on 40nm and released late next year. What's GT300 on 55nm? The 55nm parts coming out soon are GT200, so where does that leave GT300? So confused....
