Nothing major, but still pretty nice
You mean like they did for the GF4, which was the NV25? My point is that if there are any "specific systems" changes like that, it woud be the NV35, and that won't happen for a year. What comes out Q2 would just a clock bumped NV30 most likely. The most radical changes to date for that intermediate generation was the addition of DDR memory. The NV28 will likely just add AGP8X.
