Last doubt inevitable transfer of flagship products in the NVIDIA 55-nm tehprotsess finally overcome with the publication of graphic photographs chip G200-103-B2, known under the code name GT206, and a new version of GeForce GTX 260 graphics card, which is an original design printed circuit board. Reducing costs and improving the frequency and thermal characteristics will give it fresh forces in the fight against major competitor from AMD in the face of Radeon HD 4870. The market segment for enthusiasts also will not remain unheeded. Early next year, a senior in line accelerator NVIDIA GeForce GTX 280 is scheduled to transfer to 55-nm nucleus. We also know that around the same time, a new two-GeForce GTX 295 graphics card, which should reset the Radeon HD 4870 X2 with 3D-Olympia. To become more familiar with the future flagship game line of NVIDIA turn to the latest information from Asian sources. According to Singapore`s resource VR-Zone, California company will introduce an updated version of GeForce GTX 280 and GeForce GTX model dvuhprotsessornuyu 295 on the opening day 2009 International CES exhibition, which will be held from 8 to 11 January next year. It should be noted that translated into 55-nm kernel accelerator GeForce GTX 280 will get a new marketing name - GeForce GTX 285. This renaming is justified because the imminent decision to work at higher frequencies. An aging model GeForce GTX 280-based 65-nm versions of the chip GT200 should be withdrawn from production in the month. Dvuhprotsessorny accelerator GeForce GTX 295 hit the sight of Chinese copyright Expreview.com. This discovery was that the new graphics card is full chips GT206 with 240 universal conveyors, rather than 216-conveyor cuttings, as previously thought. Total videobufera equal to 1792 MB (2 x 896 MB). The width of the tire memory is the same as the GeForce GTX 260, at 448 bits. At this stage of the evolution of gaming accelerators kaliforniytsy no hurry to move to a new type of memory GDDR5, relying on time-tested chip GDDR3. Unfortunately, there is no information on the benefits of the new dual NVIDIA solutions over a competitor from AMD in the 3D-applications. It is only a marked superiority on the level of energy. When full load GeForce GTX 295 consumes up to 289 Watts. Recall that the appetite for video card Radeon HD 4870 X2, consisting of a pair of 55-nm chip RV770 and 2 GB of memory GDDR5, about 30 W modest.
