NVIDIA has finally released architectural details of their upcoming 3 Billion-plus transistor GeForce DX11 GPU codenamed, Fermi. This editor was at NVIDIA’s GPU Technology Conference last September where the general and GPU computing Fermi architecture was detailed here, here and here in a three-part series. NVIDIA had hoped the GeForce Fermi would launch last year, but yield issues and the complexity of their new architecture evidently is delaying the launch of this GPU until later in this first quarter of 2010.
NVIDIA knows they are late in relation to their competitor, AMD, whose ATI division has launched the 5000 series of GPUs, the first DX11 chips four months ago, and has even launched their DX11 mobile GPUs at CES as we reported here last week. However, NVIDIA believes the wait for gamers is worth it. In their first unveiling of the Fermi GF-100 GPU yesterday, NVIDIA has given brand new details of their new DX11 Fermi architecture for gaming and they are quite proud of it.
ABT is privy to this information about the latest GeForce and we shall share it with you tomorrow night, at 9 PM Pacific Standard Time (P.S.T.). Stay tuned, the graphics wars are heating up again and our readers will know about it first.
