In a market where dual-GPU, single-PCB graphics cards are readily available from most major OEMs, product manufacturers are increasingly turning to water cooling as a way to differentiate their products and out-maneuver their competitors. The superior thermal characteristics of liquid cooling allows companies like BFG to hit higher core / memory clocks than they might using air alone.  However, H2O-reliant high-end video cards cater to an even smaller slice of the market—specifically, those enthusiasts with big money to spend and who are comfortable using water in their own PC. BFG's GTX 295... Read more...
In the GPU business, like any other semiconductor technology, die size, cost and performance-per-watt are the name of the game.  Performance-per-watt from a design and manufacturing perspective is important on multiple levels.  Certainly, power efficient products are important to the consumer but also, generally speaking, power-efficient designs usually mean higher clock speed head-room and higher yields which, at the end of the day, drop right to bottom line profits.  In terms of very complex, highly scalable processor architectures like CPUs and GPUs, bleeding-edge manufacturing...

According to a story posted at the Inquirer, NVIDIA's next-gen high-end GPU is codenamed G92 and it will offer up to a teraflop of compute performance.  If you remember from our 2900 XT launch article, the R600 can deliever 475GFlops, which would make the G92 over twice as powerful. "In an analyst webcast, Nvidian Michael Hara says that the chip will be ready for Christmas, a release cycle the company adopted with G80, where high-end products come out for Chrimbo and the mid-range and low-end products hit in the spring. This suggests a couple of things. One, that the delays we saw to the release... Read more...
