Nvidia’s New GPU

Nathan Simon Nathan Simon Profile: Nathan Simon

Its called “Fermi” Nvidia’s new super GPU. It has around 3 billion transistors, which is three times the amount of transistors in Nvidia’s most powerful GPU. Fermi will contain 512 processing cores, they say that this would enable scientific breakthroughs, and can only be possible with the new technology. Read the full story here and check out this story over at CNET for a gaming perspective. I included an insert for a quick preview of the full story.

“From a gaming perspective, the most significant features Nvidia mentioned are that Fermi will indeed support DirectX 11, and that it will use GDDR5 memory. Those features answer two of AMD’s most obvious advantages with its new Radeon HD 5800-series cards, but Nvidia hasn’t provided information on availability, which remains AMD’s most important edge.”
