The following are the rumoured (and at this stage probably pretty accurate) specs for the upcoming 9900GTX, formally known now as the GTX 280.

  • 512 bit bus interface
  • 1GB DDR3
  • 240 Stream processors
  • PhysX ready
  • CUDA Technology
  • PureVideo HD Technology
  • Full DirectX 10.0 support
  • OpenGL 2.1, SLI, PCIe 2.0 support

2nd gen. unified architecture delievers 50% over 1st gen. The card will be 10.5" long, the same as the 8800 Ultra. Nothing is known about clock speeds, but from the new architecture, the card should be highly OCable. nVidia is planning to release the card in two stages. The first, using the 65nm process, and the second using the newer 55nm process.

Well nice to know they are planning a 55nm version. The 4870s are supposedly being made in 55nm. I'm not sure I'll want to wait yet again for that though after waiting through that rebadged 8800 crap just to finally get to the real 1 bill transistor GPU that the original 9800 was supposed to be.

the 4870's should be 55nm as the 3870's were

I'm waiting for RV770XT/Pro. Supposed specs are to be: (4870X2 not included): Radeon HD 4870:

  • 480 Shader Processors
  • 1GB GDDR5
  • 850Mhz Core Clock
  • 3870Mhz Memory Clock
  • 256-bit Memory Interface
  • 55nm

Radeon HD 4850:

  • 480 Shader Processors
  • 512MB GDDR3
  • 650Mhz Core Clock
  • 2286Mhz Memory Clock
  • 256-bit Memory Interface
  • 55nm

I've seen alot of rumors and numbers that the 4870 will be 25% faster than the 9800GTX, and the 4850 will be 25% faster than the 8800GT/9600GT. The HD 4870X2 is said to basically be two 4870's, but i can't find any good info on the clock speeds. Rumored prices are $299 for the 4870, $249 for the 4850. There is also the RV740 core which is said to have 240 shader processors.

That looks very promising as well. The thing that concerns me is it's still on the 256 bit interface. Makes me wonder if it will be able to perform as well as the next-gen nvidia cards. Time will tell. At least it looks like we will continue to get healthy competition at the top of the GPU market. Hopefully that will equate to better prices from both the red & green team. The prices you mentioned don't seem too bad at all for a new card launch. :)
