    NVIDIA will probably demonstrate during CeBIT four new chipsets intended to AMD platform that will be available in the middle of the year. 4 versions will be released:

    - nForce 590 SLI
    - nForce 570 SLI
    - nForce 570
    - nForce 550

    We don't know yet the differences between the 590, 570 and 550 except for the possibility to support (or not support) SLI. Compared to the nForce 4, the nForce 500 will bring amongst others the support of 6 SATA ports and 2 network Gigabit ports (as compared to 4 and 1). The audio AC’97 codec will be replaced by the HDA.



     Precise details about ATI's price cuts

    In order to respond to the NVIDIA GeForce 7900 & 7600 release that will take place this week, ATI will reduce prices of its entire product line.

    The X1900 XTX and XT 512 MB prices will respectively fall to $549 and $479 ($100 and $70 price cuts) to counter the 7900 GTX. To compete with the 7900GT, ATI will reduce the X1800 XT 256MB price from $399 to $329. Some manufacturers announced $299, but we find this a little bit surprising.

    The GeForce 7600 will have to face two opponents, the release of the X1800 GTO 256 MB at $249 and the price cut of the X1600 256 MB. The XT and Pro version will be at $149 and $109. It corresponds to a $30 and $20 price cut. Long live the competition!

    It doesn't seem, however, that a possible X1900 XL will be out in the weeks to come. If such a card would be released it won't be announced at CeBIT but in a month or two. ATI keeps for the moment the latest chip for very high end products.



     ATI acquires a piece of XGI

    ATI today announced the acquisition of Shanghai-based Macrosynergy, an XGI Technology alliance company that was in charge of, additionally to being the headquarters in Taipei, the design of hardware and software architecture. XGI's related personnel working in Santa Clara will also be transferred to ATI.

    More than XGI, it appears that ATI bought the Trident graphic division. Indeed, XGI bought in June 2003 this division to Trident Microsystems that was actually based in … Shanghai.
