Fermi mid-life kicker comes in 40nm

Written by Fuad Abazovic
nvidia

To compete Radeon HD 6000

Nvidia is working on a mid-life kicker chip, something that will eventually replace Fermi and something that will have to deal with the competition until Kepler comes at 28nm.

The new chip is designed to fight the Radeon HD 6000 series and of course Nvidia thinks that it has a clear win, although we quite sure ATI thinks the same and judging by the sucess of the HD 5000 series, its optimism is well founded.

At this pointe we don’t really know, as much of the information we are gathering is contradictory. We believe that Nvidia's kicker comes after Radeon HD 6000 launch, but there is a big chance that you'll see this new Fermi, let’s call it Fermi 1.5 even in late 2010.

These plans are not fixed yet, at least we don’t know that they are, but it looks that Q4 2010 will be quite interesting when it comes to the graphics market.

Oh god, more pr bullshit from nvidia

Mid-life kicker? NV haven't even released the entire Fermi line yet, how can anyone believe they are close to releasing a "mid-life" kicker?

Utter bullshit, as usual from NV PR and parroted by a poor, misguided Fudo.

Well we will see Fermi 1.5 before all the Fermi 1 parts? No i think not. They need several months to make a refresh.

Cool story, moron. Fermi line is finished. (High-med-low-mobile fermis.)

There is only one little difference between Nvidia killer product and Radeon 67XX series. Radeon 67XX series is REAL.

Let's just not prejudge events !

Nvidia said before that Fermi will come and will wipe out the competitor but it turns out that Fermi came with power hog and heat generator !! And even got beat up in some scenarios by 6 months old 5000 card !

I am correct or not fudo ?!

Where's the low end Fermi, aka GF108? Exactly nowhere. Up Huang's ass for all we know, which is where your head seems to be too.

So, basically, nvidia will bring out a Northern Islands killer on 40nm in Q4'11... isn't that when Southern Islands will launch on 28nm?

I wish them the best of luck, they will need it.

Nobody needs 108. Only AMD crap can be low-end.
P.S. Why niggers hate asians? :zzz
