Lmao!!!The inquirer....!!
 
www.theinquirer.net/?article=5749
The inquirer says radeon9500pro and non pro will launch October 15th.Radeon9500pro=8 pipes while non pro=4.

www.theinquirer.net/?article=5779
The inquirer says Ati will launch radeon9700(275/275 -299$) and radeon9500(275/275 -179$) with 4 pipes October 18th.Radeon 9500pro with 8 pipes will launch in the comming months .

LOL!!That inquirer changes it's "comming from reliable sources" rumors every day!!:D :rolleyes:

Actually its this month of the "launch" not Aug :).

The 9500 for a MSRP of onl $179 :eek:

That will but some major pressure on nV and should if true replace the Ti4200 as the best bang for the buck. Consider that with in 2 weeks of the R9700 Pro launch you could buy a Pro for $330 I wonder if the 9500 will follow the same price trend. If so thats great for us to have a DX9 part at the main stream market.

But then really, nothing sure. With the inquirer track record, it could very well cost $250 or $149 - i wouldn't take their rumors as facts, even for MSRP.

Actually if they specs are true (4 pipes and only 128 bit mem interface) then the 3 biggest cost factors have been removed from the total price which will greatly reduce the cost (4 pipe = smaller die, more parts per wafer, 128 bit = easier packaging and layout, 8/6 layer PCB vrs 10 layer PCB, ect). So I could see a something a bit under $200 as beening a good cost target.

enough talk about specs, let's hear performance numbers!

it should be interesting to see, at least.

If it IS 275mhz, 4 pipes and 128 bit bus ( and this is a big if because if it isn't the case, i refuse to assume the following statement ) , it'll be a competitor to the Ti4600 in performance, probably won't be much faster, but will have DX9 support.

Really, IMO, the R300 performance is nothing revolutionary. You put 8 pipes on the GF4 Ti4600 and put a 256 bit memory bus while OCing the whole thing to 325Mhz and... tadam! Nearly as fast as the R300. I said nearly because after all, it's one generation after the GF4. It would be surprising if the transistor-to-performance ratio isn't better.

Is geforce 4 made in 0.13 micron ?

You say that as if it's a trivial thing. And what would you get if you did that? An NV30. :rolleyes:

I was kidding :D . I showed the kind of thing appears there

Probably not the best one to link to though, as it cites nV News as the source.

If it did have a clock of 325Mhz and no improvements in the architecute ( unlikely seeing the differences coming from the NV20 architecure ) , then you're probably right. But that's very unlikely.
