NVidea Laptop GPU Goes HiDef

Posted by Sam Churchill on

Chief executive of Nvidia, the world’s No .1 supplier of graphics processing units (GPUs), said the company has shipped 400 thousand of the GeForce 8800 graphics chips since October and is ramping up other DirectX 10-supporting GPUs.

The head of Nvidia also confirmed that the company has plans to release a family of GPUs for notebooks based on the GeForce 8 architecture in time for Intel’s Santa Rosa laptop platform, likely to ship late Q1 or early Q2 2007, which means that commercial shipments of lower-power GeForce 8 are just around the corner.

“We are ramping production on our GeForce 8 family of notebook GPUs, the industry’s first DX10 and high-definition video GPU for notebooks. GeForce 8 will be the only DX10 GPU shipping in the upcoming Santa Rosa notebook launch,” Mr. Huang said.
