NVIDIA Fermi based Cards Coming Soon

If the recent news of NVIDIA’s GT300 wasn’t enough to get ATI sweating, it looks like the latest tidbit that NVIDIA will be launching three Fermi-based graphics cards, all supporting DirectX 11, should really give ATI a heart attack. The first of the three cards is reportedly a single chip graphics card with 16 clusters and 512 shader cores; the second a dual-GPU version of the same card, but with less than 2x 512 shader cores; the last will certainly be a high performance card, aimed at competing directly with ATI’s Radeon HD5850. The official announcement should be out before we see 2010, and notebooks with Fermi-based cards should appear sometime in 2010, which certainly isn’t too far away.
