Nvidia readies G92 graphics chip for mid-November
We heard all the way back in June that Nvidia was cooking up a new G92 graphics processor for launch some time in November. DigiTimes has now published a report that mentions a precise release date for the upcoming graphics chip: November 12.
The Taiwanese site says the G92 GPU will be based on 65nm process technology, and that it will support PCI Express 2.0 connectivity, HDMI and DisplayPort video outputs, and a new version of Nvidia's PureVideo video processing technology. G92-based graphics cards will reportedly elbow their way into Nvidia's lineup as replacements for existing GeForce 8800 GTS-series models. Nvidia is said to be cooking up a G98 graphics processor for mainstream cards, too, but DigiTimes claims a launch date for that chip is still unknown.
