[Techpowerup.com] New 28 nm Graphics Cards To Be 45 Percent Faster And Overclock Like Never Before?
The next generation NVIDIA and AMD GPU's are going to be built on Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company's (TSMC) brand new 28 nm process, which may offer a 45% speed boost to these new products. Smaller geometries usually mean that a processor will use less power and can be made smaller, faster and more cheaply than previously. It's good news then that TSMC reports that the new process is ready for mass production and is running very well indeed. So well in fact, that unnamed sources within TSMC claim the new 28 nm process allows for a 45% increase in clock speed over the current 40 nm process. Put this together with improved GPU architectures and the next generation of graphics cards could be wickedly fast, something every enthusiast likes to see. However, it appears that NVIDIA and AMD may go for a blend of performance and power usage, rather than outright performance, since power use of modern graphics cards is already hitting limits of acceptability. So, does this mean that these new cards will overclock like never before? We will have to wait and see. AMD's cards should be out around the new year and NVIDIA's a couple of months later.
Head on over to DailyTech for a lot more detail on this.
