NVIDIA 80nm GPU Expected In September
HKEPC has learned that NVIDIA's first 80nm GPU is expected to be released sometime this September. Two versions of the G73-B1 GPU, the G73-N-B1 and the G73-H-B1, will be manufactured by TSMC (Fab12), and will be a direct competitor to ATI's X1650 series. The G73-N-B1 is very similar to NVIDIA's 90nm part, even sharing the same PCB design, however the G73-H-B1 will be geared towards the home theater market. The G73-H-B1 will be available to the OEM market, though NVIDIA has yet to announce any plans for the retail market.
