NVIDIA's "Fermi" next generation GF100 GPU is not here yet. Nope, we do not have hardware. But NVIDIA has given us an in-depth look at the specifics behind the architecture as it relates to gaming. NVIDIA certainly remembered us gamers and the fact that we like lots and lots of polygons.

Introduction

HardOCP recently had the opportunity to sit down with NVIDIA face-to-face and discuss its next generation GPU, codenamed "GF100" which is based on the "Fermi" architecture you have likely heard so much about for the last few months. Currently NVIDIA is not sharing GF100 based video card specifics. This is NOT a product launch! This is a look into the GF100 GPU’s inner workings and how that relates to gaming. The "GF" in "GF100" stands for a "Graphics" solution based on the "Fermi" architecture. The "100" denotes that it is the high-end part of the current GPU family.

The GF100 is NVIDIA’s next big investment, and it is yet to be seen if it will pay off for them. The GF100 is more than just a GPU for gaming; we all know that based on the recent information that has been given. However, don’t let this GP-GPU nonsense fool you, NVIDIA made it clear to us...finally…the GF100 is built for gaming.

On this page is the official presentation in its entirety, and on the second page you will find the entire GF100 White Paper posted along with some opinions

NVIDIA’s focus for GF100 has been unclear to us at HardOCP. Is it a gamers’ GPU? Is it a GP-GPU? Is it both? Is it a GP-GPU disguised to be a gamers’ GPU or vice versa? After our conversations with NVIDIA last week, it seems NVIDIA has built a geometry power house, at least on paper. And finally NVIDIA talked about playing games on GF100 and NVIDIA went out of its way to make sure we understood that GF100 started out with gaming in mind and is ending with gaming in mind.

The GF100 should accelerate geometry faster than any other GPU known to date throughout the rendering pipeline, all the way from Triangle Setup to Geometry Shading to Tessellation to Rasterizing. If NVIDIA’s investment in its geometry engine proves correct, the GF100 could be substantially faster than the AMD Radeon HD 5000 series when it comes to things like DX11 Tessellation; one of the Radeon HD 5000 series main selling points right now. This is all theoretical of course until we actual test the GF100’s performance in games.

Some GF100 Specifications

GF100 will have 512 CUDA cores, which more than doubles its cores compared to the GeForce GTX 285 GPU’s 240 core. There are 64 texture units, compared to the GTX 285’s 80, but the Texture Units have been moved inside the Third Generation Streaming Multiprocessors (SM)for improved efficiency and clock speed. In fact, the Texture Units will run at a higher clock speed than the core GPU clock. There are 48 ROP units, up from 32 on the GTX 285. The GF100 will use 384-bit GDDR5, so depending on clock speeds it actually operates at, there is potential for high memory bandwidth. These changes seem logical, and encouraging, but without knowing clock speeds actual shader performance is anyone’s guess.

Woohooo.... framtiden er lys---veldig lys. Har du orket å lese såpass langt så er du litt over gjennomsnittet intressert i PC gaming og/eller hardware skjermkort. Da følger du bare linken øverst eller nederst for mere spennende lesning med illustrasjoner, siden dette ikke er min artikkel tok jeg heller ikke med hele artikkelen,"just Copyd`n`pasted it" så er det jo heller ingen vits med oversettelse eller å ta kreditt.

Uansett som jeg skriver over. Framtiden er lys og jeg vil være med.

Jada, blir heftig dette :P

har begynt å spare... gleder meg til å se hvor høye frekvenser de oppnår, men det blir nok rimelig varmt... med et par deltavifter går vel alt bra, hehe

Så får vi bare håpe at TSMC får yielden på waferne over 70% snart :)

Om de klarer å få det ut i mars blir det perfekt med Bad Company 2 :D

grrrrr..

Husker jeg kjøpte GTX 295 på minuttet komplett la det ut, 5 store... gruer meg til å se prisen, men hva ofrer man vel ikke for et kick-ass grafikkort?

niiice :D

Dette ser veldig spennende ut. Billig blir det sikkert ikke når det kommer så det er vel best å begynne å spare allerede nå.
