GeForce 6 Announced

NVIDIA Launches GeForce 6 Series - Biggest Performance and Feature Leap in Company History is the press release with the announcement that accompanies the spate of previews in this morning's Tech Bits. The release offers technical info as well as the usual use of phrases like "Industry-leading" and "revolutionary" in touting what they call "the biggest generation-to-generation performance leap that we have ever seen with a new GPU." Word is: "Retail graphics boards based on the GeForce 6800 models are slated for release in the next 45 days." The release also quotes industry luminaries John Carmack and Tim Sweeney on the new hardware:

"As DOOM 3 development winds to a close, my work has turned to development of the next generation rendering technology. The NV40 is my platform of choice due to its support of very long fragment programs, generalized floating point blending and filtering, and the extremely high performance," said John Carmack, president and technical director of id Software

    And:

"The NVIDIA GeForce 6 Series is a great leap forward in PC graphics, bringing next-generation Microsoft DirectX 9 rendering performance to new heights while continuing forward with the high-definition floating-point rendering, driver performance, and stability NVIDIA is famous for," stated Tim Sweeney, Founder EPIC Games. "As the first GPU supporting the new Pixel Shader 3.0 programming model, the GeForce 6 Series enables games to use entirely new rendering approaches and obtain higher performance per-pixel lighting, shadowing, and special effects than previously possible."

More on this can be found in: NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Models of GPUs to Be Offered by Record Number of Partners and Game Creators and Publishers Praise NVIDIA GeForce 6 Series. Thanks Frans.
