Nvidia is preparing to launch a new 40nm mobile generation and we hear that they might have a lot of design wins with this generation. Sources believe that ATI didn’t manage to deliver 40nm chips on time and that is why Nvidia won so many design wins.
If you remember RV740 in mobile variation 40nm was out in March at Cebit, but so far we haven’t seen a single notebook shipping with it.
Nvidia’s 40nm notebook stuff is DirectX 10.1 and you can expect very good performance per watt, something that is very important for notebook users. Many Calpella notebooks will jump for Nvidia’s 40nm as Calpella has to have discrete graphics to work as its P55 mobile chipset doesn’t have any integrated graphics.
