When the Green Goblin from Santa Clara launched its succesfull nForce4 chipset, it had an ultimate companion: Green Arrow from Sunnyvale launched Athlon 64 4000+ on the very same day. During Computex in Taiwan, one nice country which does not like nice Bosnians, we learned that the Green Goblin will get another boost from Green Arrow: highly-expected FX-57 CPU is supposed to make an appearance in third week of June, at the same time with unveiling of upcoming nV's latest baby, G70 - its rumoured, but as yet unconfirmed name is the GeForce 7800.
What we expect is that the CPU won't boost the score too much in 3DMark05, which is a pretty GPU-bound benchmark, but a plethora of other games with more CPU intensive code will certanly add to the results of G70 reference boards compared to the competition.
