Nvidia Logo 55nm GT200 to finally arrive in December??
 
 
The chaps over at Fudzilla today reported that they have received word that December is when we may finally see Nvidia's rehash of the GT200 chip but this time coming on a 55nm process.  They say it could even come at the end of November but even if this were the case, it would be very unlikely to see any serious availability until December.
 
Obviously, on a 55nm process, the chips produced should be clocked higher and run cooler with perhaps more shader units or cores as Nvidia like to call them.  This shrink could finally lead to a dual GT200 GPU card which has been speculated on for months now.
 
Whether these rumours are true remains to be seen, but regardless of when the 55nm chips come, with them Nvidia have to bridge the gap between their own and ATI's current line of cards, and if possible surpass them.
 
Talk is already spreading of the 40nm shrink for Nvidia, but this is still some way off and is unlikely to be with us until at the very least March 09, but likely a little later.
 
 
Think there is any truth in this?  Could we be just a month away from the 55nm Nvidia cards?

Who's gonna help with the snippets today? They have built up again to over 100 in the newsbox, and last time they were that amount it took me 3hrs+ to clear them inbetween my work duties. I don't mind sharing the load if someone wants to help:)

Yeah I agree, it's crap tbh. I've already discussed this with you on msn Stuart, but WC, Tox and Bungral really need to remember that there is a news inbox that needs emptying. During our news team chat I highlighted the need for it to be regularly cleaned as one of high importance. If others don't start to share the load them I'm going to set up a roster.

While I'm at it too - if you use a PR article from the inbox then please move it to the actioned folder when you've made the article live. There's nothing worse than starting an article only to realise that someone has already done it but not moved the manufacturer PR

Inbox cleaned. Haven't done the PR's though, as there's an awful lot of them, and I don't want to feel like I'm sort of spamming them up. Pick and choose?
