Nvidia, AMD to launch next-gen GPUs next month

GeForce GTX 200 and Radeon HD 4800 series

AMD and Nvidia will next month launch their next-gen GPUs. Nvidia is already telling us to expect something big early in June, and online reports claim AMD will announce its offering round about the same time.

The launches centre on the Computex show in Taipei, which takes place in the first week of June. That said, Asian websites citing industry moles reckon the new GPUs won't appear in shops until the middle of the month.

Nvidia's next-gen part is the GeForce GTX 200, it's claimed - an interesting moniker that puts the model number last. Hopefully, this is a sign that the chip maker is indeed working to simplify its product line-up. The codename's 'D10U'. Reports list two models: the GTX 260 and the GTX 280.

AMD, meanwhile, is readying its Radeon HD 4800 series, initially comprising the 4850 - said to be targeting the $229 price point - with the $349 4870 coming later on in June. A dual-GPU version, the 4870 X2, will follow in Q3, it's said.

The 4870 is said to support GDDR 5 memory.
