ATi and NVIDIA are certainly working hard to push out their next generation GPUs for Computex launch in June. NVIDIA is particular tight-lipped about their NV50/G70 GPU even to their partners while ATi has not demo a working sample to their partners till now so things aren’t looking too rosy. None the least, we heard that NV50/G70 is a dual-core monster with 32 pipelines and is based on TSMC 90nm process technology. ATi R520 is also 90nm based and contains 32 pipelines. The reference cooler design for NV50/G70 looks huge with 4 copper heat-pipes and a large fan. We have also heard about an interesting strategy that NVIDIA is going to equip their next generation cards ranging from low-end to high-end with 2nd gen. Turbo Cache technology.
