interview with the good people of DonanimHaber
Nvidia PR Head for the EMEA Region Luciano Alibrandi told the world +
dog that the company's new Fermi GPU will be the mother of all GPUs and
that it will win in every market segment.
expect [Fermi] to be the fastest GPU in every single segment. The
performance numbers that we have [obtained] internally just [confirms]
that. So, we are happy about this and are just finalizing everything on
the driver side,” said Alibrandi.
However, the major issue with Fermi isn't its performance, but rather
its delayed launch. Nvidia already confirmed that it would ramp up
production in Q1 of its fiscal 2011, or sometime between January 26 and
April 26. Add to that the additional couple of weeks needed to stick
these GPUs into actual cards and ship them and things start to look
even worse for Nvidia.
“We just want to make sure
it is as perfect as we want it to be in both graphics and computing,” said Mr. Alibrandi.
While Nvidia is taking its time to make sure everything is perfect, ATI is supposedly working on a refreshed version of Cypress and it is clear it will have a two-quarter lead over Nvidia in the DirectX 11 market.
