Windows 7: Nvidia castrates Fermi to 448SPs

Nvidia castrates Fermi to 448SPs

IT LOOKS LIKE we were right about Fermi being too big, too hot, and too late, Nvidia just castrated it to 448SPs. Even at that, it is a 225 watt part, slipping into the future.

The main point is from an Nvidia PDF, first found here. On page 6, there are some interesting specs, 448 SPs, not 512, 1.40GHz, slower than G200's 1.476GHz, and the big '6'GB GDDR5 variant is delayed until 2H 2010. To be charitable, the last one isn't Nvidia's fault, they need 64x32GDDR5 to make it work, and that isn't coming until 2H 2010 now....

this is not to be taken as ''Gospel'', but if true its not very promising....

Win 7 Ultimate 64bit Signature Edition

It would be nice if they waited to release it and do it right, unlike ATI with the 5000's series, which IMO has been a disaster with bugs and crashes. If there is one thing I learned about VGA's, it does not pay to have the latest and greatest only to see something 6months later better.

Windows 7 Ulitimate Beta 32 Bit, Windows Vista 32 Bit, Ubuntu 9.10 32 Bit

eh but the issues with the HD5000's will all be fixed in the next month or two, and they got it out before Christmas which means more sales and people will already have one by the time nvidia even has competition thus no reason to upgrade

Hi, this is my first post here. Ever since I've gotten this card when I upgraded my pc (new motherboard, cpu, power supply and video card) it's had varying problems, which are pretty hard to explain. But I'll try my best. At first, the only problems I got were playing Battlefield Bad Company...
