Nvidia's partners have decided to give the graphics chip giant one more chance with its high end products, following the well worn codename tradition we've come to love.
Most of this informations we knew much earlier but it was impossible to validate it till now.
At the end of January, Nvidia taped out this new chip and many people wondered whether this chip that it actually showed at CeBIT was all that it was claimed to be.
The NV30U/Geforce FX 5800 Ultra may well become a collectible in the same class as Intels' first Itanic, Sendo's Z100 Stinger Smartphone, the Alpha NT OS, or the mighty Voodoo 5 6000.
Terratec was the only Nvidia partner to our knowledge that shipped any Geforce FX 5800 Ultras and then it wasn't in vast numbers, all quickly gobbled up by rapacious German enthusiasts.
The NV35 will be a 0.13 micron part that will use DDR one memory not DDR 2 as many would expect, but this time it will have 256 bit memory bus, just like ATI uses in its Radeon 9700, 9800 product lines. DDR 2 memory is a Q4 product, very hot and very expensive so this will have to wait at least for a few quarters.
