O NV40 pelos vistos vai prometer e muito. "(Feb 09,2004) Samsung Introduces Industry’s Fastest GDDR3 Graphics Memory Device The 8Mx32 GDDR3, the latest addition to Samsung’s family of high-speed GDDR memory devices, offers gaming systems clock speeds of up to 800MHz San Jose, Calif., February 9, 2004 - Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., the world leader in advanced semiconductor memory technology, today announced mass production of the industry’s highest speed monolithic memory device, a Graphics Double Data Rate 3 (GDDR3) capable of achieving clock speeds of up to 800MHz. The GDDR3 is set to enable a new generation of ultra-high-density graphic memory cards designed to support high-end gaming systems, workstations and high-end portable computers. “Our 8Mx32 GDDR3 provides customers with the fastest graphics memory on the planet at lower power consumption than existing graphics systems,” said Mueez Deen, director of marketing for DRAM and Graphic memory products at Samsung Semiconductor Inc., San Jose, California. “It is a lower cost, lower power and faster alternative to equivalent density stacked solutions today.” “NVIDIA’s advanced GPU architectures combined with high speed memory technology are paving the way for the cinematic computing age,” said Bryn Young, director of memory marketing and sales at NVIDIA. “With the aid of high-speed memory technology such as Samsung’s new GDDR-3 graphics memory, NVIDIA will continue to advance graphics technology at an incredible pace so game developers have the freedom to stretch the limits of the cinematic computing experience.” The GDDR3 graphics memory device offers an 800MHz alternative to the industry standard GDDR1, which achieves clock speeds of up to 400MHz. It will enable high speed 256 MBytes and 512 MBytes graphics cards as well as power efficient 128 MBytes notebook solutions. This combination of performance and density will further enable a realistic, cinematic experience in computer generated graphics imaging."
