NVIDIA to go for huge tranny count

Speeds like a bee

NVIDIA will announce on Tuesday details of its next generation part, numbered NV10. The technology will differ greatly from TNT2 with hardware extensions, according to Registersources. Instead, it will be new silicon, with as many as 23 million transistors and 200 BOPs -- more than the upcoming Merced and current Athlon and Pentium III. It will deliver PSX2 performance a whole year earlier than Sony, our sources claim. NVIDIA could not be contacted to comment on the reports. ®
