Colorful Smashes Market With 900MHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460
Though there are already several GTX 460 of well over 800MHz, they have just been trounced quite thoroughly by the new beast revealed by Colorful, the iGame 460, which has a massive, custom design and the GF104 graphics processing unit programmed at no less than 900MHz
tks for the link: it affirms one of two thing that I wanted to do: contain the power consumption of their chips. Second is die size, but won't know that until somebody strips or x-rays the package to look at the die size to see whether it is competitive or not.
In the long run, even the short run, no pumping nor bashing on this board will move the stock by 1 penny for 1 minute. On the long run, the chips will do ALL the talking.
Do miss the good ole days. Wish I were product engineer for nvda - I've never had a product that did not do well because of engineering reasons under my watch! Good or bad, those chips can be tuned quite a bit in manufacturing. The product engineers just need to characterize the chips well to know what to shoot for in the fab. Take the TSMC engineers out for a good lunch. Better yet, eat with them down in their cafeteria, they'll work with yar behind the scenes.
S&P downgrades to strong sell - that's so yesterday's news. First generation Fermis are crap, we all know that, so what else is new.
