Nvidia will unveil its next-generation flagship chip, the SLI-supporting G70 graphics chip, at the
Computex Taipei 2005 show from May 31 to June 4.
Market sources indicated that the Nvidia G70 should deliver twice the performance of the current
flagship series, the GeForce 6800. The chips will be built using a 0.11-micron process at Taiwan
Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), as opposed to ATI?s R520 chip, which will be
manufactured using a 90nm process, the sources suggested.
Since the G70 is currently under non-disclosure agreement (NDA) with Nvidia, motherboard
makers declined to provide more details about the product. Nvidia also had no comment on the
news as it is its policy not to comment on products not yet released.
The makers did say the G70 may begin volume shipments in the latter half of the third quarter at
the earliest and will retail for US$549.
