11/15/2000: NVIDIA attacks again: piece of news GeForce2 Go, the first GPU for portable
The sale of portable has increased recently due to the descent of prices that has experienced this sector (although I always doubt if they sell more and lower the prices, or if, on having lowered the prices, they sell more..., we go, the problem of the egg and of the hen), and that is evident in that the manufacturers get overturned in the development of new and more powerful products for this market, considered already the second one behind the dessert PCs.
We surprised ATI some time ago with his already veteran ATI RAGE MOBILITY 128, who was counting with support AGP 2X, acceleration 2D/3D, DVDs reproduction without need for additional hardware and possibility of connection to diverse types of monitors and TV sets between other characteristics. For months this has been the graphic chip for portable more powerful...
Now it is the NVIDIA shift with his new "creature": the GeForce2 Go, which is provided, like his sisters (the GeForce256 SDRAM and DDR and GeForce2 MX and GTS), with its own GPU (Graphics Processing Unit), which is the unit entrusted to liberate to the central processor of the tedious calculations matématicos that implies any image 3D. Thanks to his architecture it is capable of processing more than 17 million triangles for second and 286 million píxels for second, all this with more than acceptable band of memory of 2,6 GB / century
If all this was not sufficient, also it includes even 32MB of memory DDR-SDRAM, what turns him also into the first graphic chip for portable that has this type of memory. It incorporates acceleration MPEG-2 and reproduction DVD, as well as the systems NSR (NVIDIA Shading Rasterizer), which provides effects of shades and lighting for pixel, and the DVC (Digitalis Vibrance Control) that increases the clarity and definition of the image. Also, his design avoids to sacrifice the life of the battery.
Finally, to use his games 3D favorites in a portable one with your own GPU and memory of video DDR has already stopped being a sleep.
