No, it's not some April Fool jokes. VR-Zone has learned that there will be two high end parts from Nvidia to replace the current GeForce 9800GX2 and 9800GTX in Q3. These two parts are GeForce 9900GTX
and GeForce 9900GT
based on the new GT200 architecture
. GeForce 9800GX2 and GTX will have a short lifespan since they will be replaced in a couple of months time. Nvidia has positioned GeForce 9900GTX to replace 9800GX2 and this gave a clue that a single GT200 card will actually outperform a dual G92 card. Likewise for GeForce 9900GT, outperforming and replacing 9800GTX. CJ revealed to us that Nvidia will have a hard time fitting GT200 onto the PCB since the GPU is gonna be large and very power hungry so we can probably assume it is still 65nm based. The PCB for GT200 will be P651.
It is similar to today’s NV tactic: 9900GX2
just like todays 9800GX2, it is a two GPU product, and 9900GTX is a conventional single GPU product. Source mentions that both cards will be announce in July. In previous rumors, words have it that NV will improve G9X core by rolling out GT200. But detailed information still unknown.G92’s first product, 8800GT got lots of applause.Will GT200 keep it going?http://vr-zone.com/articles/NVIDIA_GT200_%3A_GeForce_9900_GTX_%26_9900_GT_In_Q3/5684.htmlhttp://en.expreview.com/2008/03/31/gt200-to-become-9900gtx-and-9900gx2-launch-date-set-to-july/
