Super Fast Graphics for Gaming Pc's coming
Wednesday, December 07, 2011
When is comes down to it the visuals from a large part of the immersion fact. The advances in CPU technology is powering ahead. Thats why the 4+ year old consoles are loosing ground to PC's. The ability to generate graphics and the ability to display them will undergo dramatic growth paths over the next period. The PC's leading that race right now.
According to Nvidia's CUDA GPU roadmap released last year at Nvidia's GPU technology conference, the 28nm "Kepler" generation of chips would appear in the end of 2011. However, Nvidia will unveil its 28nm GPU architecture 2012 and 22/20nm sometime in 2014, respectively, one year later than originally planned, possibly due to low yield rates of Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company's (TSMC) 28nm process as well as lower-than-expected performance of the Kepler chips. The generation chips will consume "a little more" power than the current generation Fermi chips Fermi chips but they will also be faster, according to Nvidia chief executive Jen-Hsun Huang.
The Kepler processor will be three to four times faster than Nvidia's current Fermi chip generation, while the Maxwell chips - which will appear in 2013 - will be ten to 12 times the power of Fermi, according to Huang. Kepler GPUs will purportedly triple the dual-precision floating point performance of Fermi, reaching up to 6 dp Gflops.
In plain English that means they are getting more "thingies" on a chip. This will result will quadruple the graphics cards processing abilities two fold over the next year. Gaming and simulation immersion is increased with the ability to create more realtime HD detail.
