Nvidia is about to have its first working samples of the card that might end up be called Geforce 8700. The new mainstream chip should be the one we mentioned before codenamed D8M, but it's also highly likely that Nvidia has another codename for it, something like G8x.
The new chip aims to be launched together with G92 in the Novemberish time and this will secure Nvidia’s performance leadership in this market segment.
If the yields are good Nvidia will have a killer chip as the thermal dissipation of this improved version of G84 core is going to be much better and it will let Nvidia to set the higher clocks.
What else can we say other that it feels good to be Nvidia.
