Nvidia's upcoming NV36 chip - likely to be released as the GeForce FX 5700 - will feature DDR 2 SDRAM support across a 128-bit memory bus, and will be offered running at a variety of core and memory clock speeds.

So says web site PC Stats, which got its hands on an NV36 reference board at Computex in Taiwan last week.

It spoke to two graphics card vendors, Albatron and Chaintech. The former said it plans to offer cards with cores running at 450MHz and memory at 500MHz. Chaintech's core and memory will both be clocked to 475MHz, the site says.

Both companies will ship their cards with 128MB of video RAM.

The NV36 itself is believed to have been assigned to IBM for fabrication, using the foundry's 130nm process.

Previous information had the NV36 pegged at 4000-5000 points on the 3DMark03 scale, a figure apparently confirmed by one of PC Stats' sources. ®
