The NV30 is a still unannounced part. How do you know that it will be 128 bit bus? Are you basing it on the Daivd Kirk comment that 256bit is "overkill, at the moment." nVidia moves fast, that moment may have already passed.
I would not be surprised at all to see the NV30 with 256bit memory.
As for NV30 cost, 0.13 um process = more chips on the same size platter = lower cost per chip. Assuming of course the process has comparable yield.
