NVIDIA G80 To Launch in November
DigiTimes reports that graphics card vendors have informed them that NVIDIA will be launching the industry's first DX10 compliant GPU in mid-November. Codenamed G80, this new GPU will have complete support for Shader Model 4.0 as well as for Microsoft's new Vista Operating System. Given the fact that DX10 will be available only on Vista, the launch of the GPU will be somewhat premature in terms of showcasing the latest and greatest features. However, history would suggest consumers will see some healthy gains in performance and image quality with their current crop of games as well.
