GT300 ''NDA'' has been partially lifted.
about 5 hrs ago the ''NDA'' was lifted on certain aspects of the new GT300 or ''GF100 & GF104'' as they're officially known, by the looks of it Nvidia are gonna wipe the floor with ALL current ATI solutions..
here's what ive got for ya....... (im pretty excited )
All (or most?) Benchmarks done at:
1920x1200, 4xAA 16xAF
AvP3 and Crysis2 can be taken with a grain of salt, since they are not finalized and drivers aren't finalized yet. DiRT2 may improve or decline slightly, depends on final drivers.
Those tests were run using a Corei7 920, 6GBs of DDR3 1333, and an Intel 64GB SSD paired with a single GF100 card. The tests were run at 1920x1200 with 4x SSAA and 16xAF. Happy? If you want more details, wait for a benchmarking site to run benchmarks like everyone else. I am spoiling you as it is. Don't bite the hand that feeds.
The GF100 card length is 10.61" (5870 equivalent)
The GF104 is going to be larger, around 5870 length (5970 equivalent)
The GF104 is the faster of the two cards.
GF100 outperforms ATi's 5870 by 46% on average
GF100 outperforms ATi's 5970 by 8% on average
The GF100 gets 148 fps in DiRT2
The GF100 gets 73 fps in Crysis2
The GF100 gets 82 fps in AvP3
*GTX misnomers removed due to Business NDA*
GF104's maximum load temperature is 55 C.
The release week of GF100 is Mar 02nd
Blackberry ordered about a million Tegra2 units for their 2011 smartphone.
Apple ordered a few million Tegra2 units for the 2011 iPhone.
Nintendo ordered several million Tegra2 units for their next gen handheld (the DS2!)
*Removed: Under business NDA*
That's all for now kiddies! See if you can guess for the time being, each - represents a letter or number
GF100 and GF104 will feature a new 32x Anti Aliasing mode for enthusiast setups.
GF100 and GF104 can do 100% hardware based decoding for 1080p BluRay and H264 playback.
GF100 and GF104 feature full SLi capability and a new scaling method for rendering!
GF100 and GF104 will provide full on chip native C++ operation for Windows and Linux environments. This will be further augmented with CUDA and OpenCL.
GF104 will feature new technology designed for UHD OLED monitors!
GF100 promises to deliver at least 40% more performance than the GTX295 for less money. GF104 promises double that.
pricing still cant be released under the buisness NDA plan, but upon speaking to this guy via PM he let me know the 5870 equivalent ''GF100'' will cost up to 60% less than what i payed for my 5970, so you can expect the ''GF104'' to be far cheaper than the 5970 upon launch.....
the ''GF100'' also outperforms the 5970 by 8% & THAT'S WITH A SINGLE CORE!!! , the ''GF104'' WILL OBLITERATE THE 5970!!!!
he says its gonna fully be lifted in 2-3 days time, so by the looks of it Nvidia have been busy bee's producing ''show stopping'' products which are gonna be priced beautifully...
i think i can see an upgrade in my near fututre..... i'll update as & when.

i'm good for competition... but i don't quite believe it--yet. it's like a two prize fighters squaring off at each other before the fight--except the red camp already threw a k.o. punch! green team has to at least throw back a woof ticket, right? green team can't just stand there with a swollen jaw and bloody nose--he gotta say something to the people to let them know "hey, i'm still in the fight."
the stories i've been reading--without having inside info for someone inside green team (this info has been pulled straight from my tech forum where one of the members has been working for Nvidia since 97...... his credentials are well known, so this is probably gospel info....)--all read that the cards coming from green team will be "best case" right on par with ati's offerings and realistically about 5% slower.
i'm with pizzaman--we'll see.

Twice today my mouse (a Logitech USB optical mouse) and keyboard (an old Dell PS/2 keyboard) stopped working. At that point it was a bit hard to tell what else had stopped working, but the second time I was not at the PC when the devices stopped working and the screensaver had kicked in by the...
