Nvidia’s next-generation GeForce chipsets will have the potential to offer more performance and power efficiency than ever before, according to the company’s chief executive officer.
Nvidia announced its first new GeForce processor this week, the GTC6, which can run at 5GHz.
The company has said it will soon introduce a second new chip, the 7.1GHz GTS6, with the goal of providing faster and more efficient performance.
Nvidia also announced today that it has begun work on a new 8-inch gaming monitor, the Pavilion Screen panels, which will feature an 8.5-inch screen and will be priced at $349.
That price tag has been lowered to $299 from $499.
Both the 8- and 9-inch screens will be offered at retail starting today, the company said.
Nvidia is launching its GTC 7 processors in two variants: the GTS 6 and GTS 7.
The GTS 5 processor, which was introduced in October, can operate at 2.7GHz, but will run at 1.7 or 2GHz instead.
The new processor will also offer higher clock speeds.
“The GTC5 and GTC 6 will offer much higher clock rates, and we are continuing to look for additional technologies that will make our processors even more efficient,” said Tim Kyncl, Nvidia’s chief financial officer.
The processor, a 7.5Ghz, 8-core version of the GeForce 8 series, is Nvidia’s latest and greatest gaming graphics architecture, and it promises to offer a much higher performance than the previous generation of GeForce graphics chips.
It will also be available in several different configurations, including the GTA 7-series, which is a desktop version of GeForce 8 graphics chips and offers higher performance at a lower price point.
Nvidia’s new GTC processors also have a number of improvements over the previous-generation processors, including improved efficiency and better support for DirectX 11.
The current GTS chips are based on the Nvidia Pascal architecture, a successor to the Nvidia Kepler graphics architecture.
The Kepler architecture is a superscalar architecture, which means the architecture can operate in several clock speeds at the same time.
Nvidia has already demonstrated the Kepler architecture running at up to 2GHz, and the company says it is also ready to offer its GTS7 processor in this mode.
“We are also continuing to improve performance on the Gtx 680, Gtx 660, and Gtx 760, with more performance improvements in the G6, G6+ and G6+.
All three chips are also optimized for the GeForce GTX 680, GeForce GTX 660, GeForce GT 740, GeForce TITAN X, and GeForce GTX TITAN Z,” Nvidia said in a statement.
Nvidia says the G7 chip will offer better performance and more power efficiency.
“Today, the GeForce processor family is powering a host of high-end and consumer-class graphics cards.
While these chips deliver impressive performance and low power consumption, their high clock rates and high latency are limiting the adoption of their GPUs in high-performance applications and gaming,” Nvidia’s CEO Jen-Hsun Huang said in the company statement.
“That is why we have introduced the G5, G5+, and G7 processors to bring faster performance, power efficiency, and lower power consumption to all of our products.
This combination of high clock speeds, low power, and improved thermal design is why these chips are now ready for wide adoption by gamers.”
Nvidia is also announcing that it will introduce an 8-bit graphics processor that will be called the GeForce GT 640, with a performance boost of up to 12% over the GX600 and GT 640.
This new graphics chip is based on a 20nm process, which should allow the new processor to run at a higher clock speed and higher clock frequencies than the current chips, the firm said.
The GT 640 is expected to launch this fall and will run on the GeForce 7 series of graphics chips, which are expected to be released later this year.
The GeForce 7 graphics chips have been widely criticized for being too power hungry and too expensive.
They are designed for the enthusiast market and have lower clock speeds than their predecessor chips.
“GT 640 will be the first product with a 10nm (nm-based) GPU, which significantly improves performance and performance-per-watt over the existing 10nm technology,” Nvidia stated in the statement.
The previous-gen GTS processors have been very efficient, but have struggled to achieve high clock frequencies.
AMD has long claimed that the current-gen GT chips are too power efficient and too power-hungry to support gaming.
“This is why NVIDIA is introducing a new and more powerful GPU family with a higher-performance, more efficient GPU that delivers better performance at lower power,” said James Gosling, AMD’s executive vice president of global graphics business.
“For the last three years, we have been working hard
