NVIDIA Preparing G8x Line-Ups, Entering Intel IGP

Jen-Hsun Huang, President and CEO of NVIDIA, announced in the conference call
that they’re working on Intel IGP solutions, as customer demand is
increasing and the merged AMD-ATI is leaving the market, thus creating a void to
be filled. They’re currently aiming at an introduction date as early as Spring
2007. Jen-Hsun cited high-definition video and DirectX10 as key reasons for the
increased demand and necessity, but it is unclear whether he implied by that
this IGP is G8x-based or not. It could also be that NVIDIA is working on a G80
derivate for the GoForce product line, potentially with only some parts shared
(like the shader core), or a completely different architecture that boasts
similar programmability. No matter what, they’re working on at least nine
more G8x-based
products, that is to say, ones with unique codenames.

Ed’s Note : We had talked about in our previous article on at least 6 SKUs of G80, G84
and G86 back in September
