New hybrid storage solutions

As we reported earlier this year, Nvidia's NV15 chip is speeding towards completion. The chip is likely to be called the GeForce 2 and will clock to between 180 and 200 MHz, according to reliable sources. And, as reported earlier, the chip will support between 32MB and 64MB of double data rate (DDR) memory, and may also be able to use other memory types. Creative Labs will be the first off the mark with a product, and its likely name will be the 3D Blaster GeForce 2. The fill rate may be as high as 1600 million pixels per second, a figure four times greater than previous cards based on the NV10 - the current Geforce256 - processor. That means we can expect 80FPS in Quake 3 at a resolution of 1024x768 in 32-bit colour. The transform and lighting (T&L) features will be augmented by clipping, which is expected to increase the performance of the chip. ®
