GT200 not really new tech?
Recently, more information has been released about the upcoming GT200 graphic processor. Manufacturers are calling the chip a "brute force chip, with not so much brains".
Basically, what Nvidia are doing is forcing more pixel shaders into the G92 architecture, naturally more pixel shaders result in a bit more 'oomph' and will allow users to run 3D applications in a higher resolution. Comparing G92s 128 shaders with GT200 240 you can tell the die size will have increased considerably. The new die size is rumoured to be around 550mm2.
The G80 to G92 was a die shrink, you can consider the GT200 to be a G92 with 240 pixel shaders, but you will all know the problem that will occur.. HEAT!
