Nvidia has more tricks up its sleeve for early next year, according to a report by DigiTimes. Apparently, word at Taiwanese graphics card makers is that the company intends to launch its first GeForce 9-series graphics processor after the forthcoming Chinese New Year, which will take place on February 7, 2008.
DigiTimes says the first GeForce 9 part will bear a D9E code-name, signifying that it will be a high-end, enthusiast part. The D9E will be based on 65nm process technology—just like the GeForce 8800 GT's G92 chip—but it will bring support for DirectX 10.1 and Shader Model 4.1—like AMD's Radeon HD 3870 and 3850. Folks looking for a more affordable GeForce 9-series product will have to wait until June 2008. According to DigiTimes, that's when we'll see a mid-range model emerge. That model will be code-named D9P, and it will be based on 55nm process technology.
