Some clarifications about NV30
Reactor Critical tries to clear the air:
On one of the recent conferences, Nvidia`s CEO, Jen-Hsen Huang, told analysts that the upcoming graphics processor code-named NV30 is not yet taped-out. Most of the industry observers started at once claim that NV30 will be late as it is not ready. We decided to ask our sources at the company about what is happening and, in fact, they told us some hot`n`juicy details about the current condition of NV30 and its architecture. They even were kind enough to whisper us some performance estimates.
Hopefully, this will begin to reduce the amount of FUD swirling around NVIDIA's next generation part. It's still up to NVIDIA to execute, though.
