Albatron expects TurboCache to help drive down PCIe-enabled graphics card prices


Taiwan graphics card makers have responded positively to Nvidia?s recent launch of its GeForce 6200 GPU with TurboCache technology, with Albatron Computer being one of the first makers to introduce a new GeForce 6200-based graphics card.

In the Taiwan market, the new version of the GeForce 6200 should bring prices of entry-level PCI Express (PCIe)-enabled graphics cards down to around US$80, compared to the current price of around $129 for GeForce 6200-based cards without TurboCache technology, according to sources at the maker.

Albatron explained that since Nvidia?s TurboCache technology allows the GPU to render portions of the 3D graphics data into system memory, the memory burden will be reduced for the VGA card, and component costs for the graphics cards can be lowered.

Nvidia has begun delivering TurboCache-enabled GeForce 6200 chipsets fitted with either 16MB or 32MB of memory and will begin to ship the 64MB part later, said sources at Taiwan graphics card makers.

In related news, Nvidia?s PCIe-based GeForce 6-series products are currently the company?s major growth driver for the middle-range and high-end markets, according to general manager of Nvidia Taiwan Sales, Paul Sun. Even with demand exceeding supply at present, Sun expects GPU demand will surge further through the second quarter of 2005.

A December 17 article in the Chinese-language Commercial Times, quoted sources in the channel as saying that PCIe-enabled graphics cards will become the mainstream in the second half of 2005.
