Nvidia and ATI Set to Launch 40nm Video Cards in 2009

50°
287w ago - Windows 7 is expected to be released in the first quarter of 2010 and Windows 7 will come with DirectX 11, near the end of this year 2009 we can expect some DirectX 11 hardware's.

Nvidia and ATI are said to launch their DirectX 11 graphics cards at the end of this year, these cards will be based on 40nm process technology and in 1st or 2nd quarter of 2010 we can expect some DirectX 11 games too.

Nvidia's 40nm video cards with DirectX 10 support are rumored to launch in Q2 of 2009 and their next generation 40nm card will most likely to hit market in December of this year which will come with DirectX 11 support.

1st generation of 40nm cards from Nvidia will be identical to GT200 chip, though it will be a die shrink from 55nm to 40nm there will be some changes in specification as this will not be the same GT200 chip but rather a totally new chip build on a smaller die. Die shrink also mean smaller transistors, lower TDP and less heat dissipation which will result in better overclocking GPU.

These 40nm chips are likely to come with increased shaders, clusters, ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines) and TMUs (Texture Memory Units), at higher clocks.

Here are a few titles we believe gamers will have to wait for:

The next Zelda game
After the slightly lacking Twilight Princess, the team behind Zelda have been working on the latest adventures of Link since 2006. After delaying 'Twilight Princess' for a Wii release, the team have had over two years working on new ideas with Shigeru Miyamoto's comments suggesting that the next instalment will breathing new life into the series like Ocarina Of Time did over a decade ago.

The last we heard was from a December issue of Official Nintendo Magazine in which stated the developers were still in the planning stages and that we'd be lucky to hear anything at E3 09 but promised some new information before the year runs out. It looks like it is going to be an awfully long wait...

Heavy Rain
One of the bigger titles hitting PS3, Heavy Rain has been confirmed as of last year for a 2009 release which is all well and good when the game is still pretty far from going gold. Not that I doubt developer 'Quantic Dream's ability to create a great game, I just wouldn't be...
