New graphics chips to debut at Computex
DigiTimes is claiming NVIDIA will introduce mid-range and high-end NV36 and NV38 graphics chips at Computex later this month. The new graphics chips would presumably replace the GeForce FX 5600 and 5900 lines, neither of which have had much time to make a dent in the market.
If you're into underdogs, XGI (formerly SiS's Xabre graphics division) and VIA will reportedly be revealing new graphics chips at Computex, too. XGI's new part will be the successor to the unique but uninspiring Xabre, while VIA's new entry will be the high-end DeltaChrome. Given the fact the DirectX 9-class DeltaChrome was announced way back in March, it's hard to expect much from the chip. The DeltaChrome was originally announced as a 0.13-micron, 8-pipe architecture with 256MB of memory, but I'll believe it when I see it.
