What you are about to read may or may not be true, but it's juicy so you'll read it anyways. Thanks to some friends and a little translation, TweakTown has found some information about the replacement for the 8800 series. The 8950GX2 will be, like it's predecessor, a dual GPU card and the 8900GTX will have 128 pipelines, and GDDR4 running at 2200MHz DDR. It also marks the switch to 80nm cores. Find out more by following the link, or wait to see if the specs get confirmed.
"News just hit our bench about upcoming information regarding nVidia's upcoming G80 based graphics cards. We want to first
clearly state that we're not sure if the information is accurate and at best it would just be estimated prices.
Our friends over at OCW seem to be talking to the right people here in Taiwan and have a bunch of information regarding the
most expensive GeForce 8950GX2 that will be sold for $599 USD. It is rumored to be a dual GPU solution much like the 7950GX2
and will come with a total of 512MB GDDR-4 memory per GPU."
