Default Re: NVIDIA GTX 280 Series 55nm cards...How will they perform???

I dont see that being possible. The actual physical shrink of 65nm to 55nm is only ~16%, so it cant be more than that, and for Nvidia as seen by the 9800GTX+ they seem to be only getting about 12% shrink out of it. Being that the 9800GTX+ and the GTX 280 are fairly similar in design I can't imagine them getting much, if any, more out of it than the 9800 does.

The actual physical shrink would only put it at 484mm^2 which is the same size as the 8800GTX, still huge. The more realistic 12% number puts it at 506mm^2.
