GeForce3 Chipset Unveiled

Graphics card king NVidia today unveiled its latest and greatest creation, the GeForce3 chipset. Coinciding with that news was the release of the NfiniteFX programmable engine to step up the pressure on ATI's Radeon cards. Last year NVidia knocked out its competitor 3dfx by purchasing the company. The new cards will be expensive however, with Mac versions weighing in at $600, while its PC counterpart comes in just under that at $500.

It is the specs of the new card that make it seem worthwhile, according to the PCWorld report. The new card, while keeping the same 200MHz core clock speed and memory speed, features a newer and slimmer 0.15 micron design. It also comes with better graphics handling and a whopping 57 million transistors, more than doubling its predecessor. It is because of this that the card will be faster and better.
