     Promising 1st bench of the Isaiah

    UMPC Portal has published benchmarks of a VIA processor, the Ultra Low Voltage Isaiah, set at 1 GHz and accompanied by a VX800. Results of a C7-M 1.2 GHz combined with a VX700M were also included.


    Centaur Technology, the CPU branch of VIA, previously announced that it would have performances 2 to 4 times higher than the C7; however with integers we cannot ignore that it’s well below these claimed results. On the other hand in FPU, while there has been undeniable progress (at equivalent frequencies, it’s even more significant), something is left to be desired because the power of the C7 on floating point calculations is more than weak.

    Knowing that they should attain 2 GHz and that the TDP of the benched version will be 3.5W, it’s not impossible that VIA could offer CPUs with an attractive performance/power consumption ratio if all promises are kept.

    At any rate, this is what Nvidia is hoping for because according to Digitimes, the two firms may sign an agreement for cooperation on the development of a VN platform based on the VIA C7 and C8 and Nvidia IGPs in order to rival the Atom Centrino. However, there is still some time for Intel because concretization of this partnership isn’t expected before the first quarter of 2009 and this when the Isaiah should be released in May or June 2008. So will Nvidia prefer to wait for the release of the dual core version of VIA’s CPU?

    Our overclocking database has been updated with the addition of recent Intel 45nm processors from the Core 2 Duo and Quad lines. Owners of these CPU models should feel free to use this info to consult their potential overclockings!

    If you didn’t already know, this database contains overclocking figures obtained by members of HardWare.fr and includes more than 11,000 entries. The average gain is 30%.

     Nvidia: G94b and G96b in 55nm?

    According to VR-Zone, Nvidia intends to release a 55nm die shrink of the G94 and G96 in addition to the one planned for the G92.


    The new GPUs will be called the G94b and G96b and will notably equip the GeForce 9800M GT and certain 9800M GTS (G94b and 1 GB of GDDR3) as well as the GeForce 9650M GT (G96b). In all likelihood, we can also expect to see them in desktop cards. This will enable Nvidia to be aggressive on prices when competing with the Radeon HD 3690 and 3830 which have an RV670 also in 55nm.



     News: Product review: The Nvidia GeForce 9800 GTX

    18 months after the GeForce 8800 GTX, the 9800 GTX has finally arrived. Is this new card up to par with other high end solutions? Reusing the G92 which already equips a number of other GeForce 8s and 9s raises some doubts...
