NVIDIA Has a 1.8 Billion Transistor GPU in the Works?

Word on the street is that NVIDIA has a new GPU in the works and it is massive. Supposedly, the new GPU will boast a mind-boggling 1.8 billion transistors and will have a shader count in the region of 384. Believed to be codenamed "GT212", the new GPU will now also have access to super-fast GDDR5 memory.

.. So I take it that risc is out the window?

It will cost about as much as a Nvidia 280. About $300-$600.
By the time it comes out it will be the same status as the 9800.

this is amazing! I would like to see were technology takes us in 10 years.... I remember when 1ghz was "wauw"

Well, within 10 years transistors will be at the atomic scale. Being only a bunch of atoms big.

Here is a nice read about fabrication process's.

There's a chart on the right showing the different sizes of fabrication transitions that will be happening every 1-2 years. 22nm CPU's will be out in 2011... not very far away lol. Getting closer and closer to smaller than 1nm.

When you power up that gpu, keanu reeves appears.

Sarcasm3394d ago

I'm pretty sure it's not Keanu Reeves.

It's Samuel L. Jackson in a Nazi General's outfit
