Premier Fermi Video Card Pictured

Category: Video Cards
Posted: 04:07PM

NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang has followed up the release of the Fermi architecture specifications with the premier (first) glimpse of a Fermi-based video card at his opening keynote at the GPU Technology Conference in San Jose, California. The card he held was a Tesla card, intended for scientific use but I'd expect the GeForce series (and Quadro series) to look similar. The only feature which can be seen on the card is what looks like an 8-pin power connector. It looks as though NVIDIA is planning to tease consumers up to a big reveal to try and take their attention away from the recently released ATI 5000 Series. Now we all have to endure an agonizing wait for real-world performance and benchmark figures!

Update: According to bit-tech, there is also a 6-pin power connector on the board itself.

A special thanks to bit-tech.net for the pictures of the Tesla card.

Kind of hard to steal the attention when it's not being sold yet.

Consumers (Enthusiasts) might wait to see what both sides (red and green) have to offer before purchasing a video card. ;)

Will this be the GTX 280 vs 4870x2 again, with the positions reversed, or does ATI have something else up its sleeve?

They have 900 million more transistors on the same process so it's pretty much a given that their high-end single GPU will be faster than ATI's HD5870. I'm guessing it'll launch at a MSRP around $499-$549

Man it seems like the prices are going higher instead of lower.
