    Nvidia working on GF100 successor

    Fresh rumors...

    "The rumoured card should be equipped with 2GB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a 512-bit memory interface."

    512-bit interface ?? rumors, rumors...

      Mere child's play.

      If Nvidia had access to make it, they could couple their new processor to Rambus' XDR or XDR 2 Mobile Memory -- the fastest memory on planet earth -- and really smoke the competition.

      But alas. It can't happen.

      You see, while the Rambus XDR memory solution exists, the designs are simply not available to Nvidia.

      Not unless and until Nvidia settles-up for their past decade of infringement on Rambus' key patents.

      Sorry guys. No pay -- no play.

      But come to think of it -- perhaps competitor AMD would like to couple their new Fusion CPU+GPU to the fastest memory on the planet!

      Talk about leap-frogging Nvidia!

      AMD -- which b/t/w is a full licensee of Rambus -- DOES have access to manufacture XDR memory, something which is unavailable to Nvidia.

      And wasn't it Rambus' XDR memory -- the fastest memory on planet earth -- that put the Sony PlayStations on the map with their Incredible graphics? Sony surpassed the hundred million XDR memory chip mark quite some time ago.


      I wonder if anybody from AMD reads this board?
