First 80nm Nvidia GPUs to ship next month

TSMC will begin shipping the first Nvidia graphics processors based on 80nm process technology in the middle of next month, HKEPC reports. Those GPUs, known as G73-N-B1 and G73-H-B1, will reportedly be die-shrunk versions of Nvidia's existing G73 graphics processor that powers GeForce 7600-series graphics cards. The G73-N-B1 will be a basic, pin-compatible die-shrink of the G73, while HKEPC's sources say the G73-H-B1 will also integrate High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection and HDMI output support. Both G73-B1 chips are supposedly intended for the OEM market, with Nvidia still pondering a possible retail introduction.
