Nvidia plans G92 GPU in November

nvidiaReports indicate that Nvidia Corp., the world’s largest GPU manufacturer and driver of graphics technology, plans to unveil it’s newest line of graphics chips in mid-November. This new product, tentatively named G92, is expected to serve Nvidia’s mainstream market, rather than replace its high end cards.

The G92 is said to be manufactured using a 65nm process instead of the 90nm currently used in the G80 and G84 lines. This is big news for mobile users, as a smaller form-factor means that not only will the GPU take up less space, but will also run cooler and draw less power. This new chip is therefore much more likely to make widespread appearances in laptops than its fellow DX10 units.

Additionally, the G92 is to be fully compatible with DirectX 10.1 – something the G80 and G84 cannot claim – and will feature improved HD-video decoding, as well as DVI and HDMI output.

The official unofficial date for the G92’s release is November 12th of this year.
