Nvidia schedules G72 GPU release in early 2006 spacepx.gif Nvidia has scheduled its G72 graphics processing unit (GPU), which will be manufactured using 90nm process technology, to be introduced in early 2006, according to sources at Taiwan graphics card makers. The G72, a 90nm version of the G70 GPU, will compete with the 90nm R-series from ATI Technologies, which will announce the launch of its long-awaited R520, RV515 and RV530 GPUs on October 5, U.S. time, indicated the sources. The 90nm G72 will have a much smaller size than the 0.11-micron based G70 allowing for multiple GPUs to be utilized on one graphics card through SLI technology, providing an effective and attractive alternative to those who do not want to fork out money for two graphics cards, the sources claimed. Graphics card makers are ready to ship R520- and RV515-based products, following ATI’s official release, according to sources at the makers. RV530-based graphics cards will be volume shipped at the end of this month, indicated the sources.

No word on whether or not this new SLI-on-card configuration will allow for two cards running four GPUs total, or if it will eat up the SLI bridge, like Gigabyte's flash-in-the-pan 3D1.

Heh, they'll probably start doing SLI with the bridge - 'split the load between two bridges' - if that becomes the case :)

They want to stick 2 GPU processors on one card like gigabyte did with their neat 3d1.

Now would this be 2 cores in one, like a dual core p4?

Well I don't plan on upgrading untill june/july 06, so this stuff should be out in the market.

Its like having a dual core processor. The Graphics card will have 2 processors on it so your gonna get double the speed. Its like having dual video cards but just 2 in 1.

Okay...So it is a dual carded 7800?

So now the question is....Will this be the new trend for Nvidia? Maybe the G72 will bring out dual gpu's for the entire line. Hmm...I hope so. 4 cores in SLi= yummy.

That's pretty cool, I take it ATi are going to have some kind of rebuttle to this, is the RV series going to have a similar feature?
