nvidia fermi

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.
