Default What do you guys expect about the NV30?

Do you think it would be 25-50% faster than the ATI's 9700?

I think it will be, seeing how it uses a .13 micron process and uses DDR 2. All things aside, I only have a Ti 4200, its time to upgrade soon, hope NV30 is out soon.

So what ARE the official specs?

I know it has 128bit mem bus, which is ****ty bandwidth..


Nothing more.

It may suck for that reason alone.

how can you even be sure about the 128bit mem bus, but obviously i don't think nvidia would bother releasing it at all if it isn't the currently fastest graphics processor. of course its going to be faster than r9700. the question is when.

then what are they going to release? nothing? what company do we know that followed that line of thinking, and where are they now

nvidia needs a high end product, and with ATI attacking from all sectors(low, mid, high), their current lineup just doesn't cut it. nvidia doesn't even have a high end product compared to the competition. and with the R9500 coming out, that should put price/performance pressure on GF4.

oh well than thats gonna be nvidias fault than. yeah they do need to release something, imagine, if it isn't even faster than a r9700, i don't think nvidia could handle all that criticism, they're going to take a lot of heat, and who would want to buy that, even if it was cheaper, it wouldn't be that much cheaper. either they produce or they go through a downfall. however i doubt that's going to happen. i think nvidia still has enough market share to release the card a little bit late, and still survive and not die like 3dfx.

What do I expect from the NV30? Well one things for sure, I exspect it to be my next video card, I get every 1st Gen card skip the 2nd gen. My first card was the TNT1, then GeforceDDR, then GF3, so next is NV30

I expect it to have dynamic branching and i expect the R300 to have static branching ( i say "expect" for the R300 because online specs are so damn vague )

And why the heck do you think Carmack is doing his next-gen stuff based on NV30 and not on R300 since the R300 got most of what NV30 got and that the very fact R300 is DX9 gives a bigger market?

*cough* Dynamic Branching *cough* ( and some other stuff too, but i think it's mostly that )

In other words, i expect the NV30 not to be significantly faster than the R300 - but features will make the R300 look lame.

And this could be exactly the thing that will hurt NVIDIA. If the NV30 is not faster by at least 20% without having significantly improved image quality, a lower price or both I think NV's market share will go down in a hurry. This is going to be a make or break product, no question.

OT - I hope they do keep the name NV30, I like it.
