     110 nm NV42

    HKEPC has encountered a third kind of GeForce 6800. After the AGP version based on a castrated NV40 and the PCI Express version based on a NV41, this graphic card includes in fact a NV42. This chip is actually a 110 nm NV41 manufactured by TSMC whereas the NV41 is made in a 130-nm process. This technology makes possible to produce more chips out of the same die and consequently reduce production costs.

    The counterpart is that the TSM 110 nm is less efficient than the 130 nm for frequency increasing. It is not however a problem because the NV41 and NV42 are clocked at 325 MHz. They both include 12 pixel pipelines, 5 vertex engines and 256 Mo of video memory.

    The thing is that the GeForce 6800 PCI-Express provides juts slightly higher performances than the GeForce 6600 GT and has a comparable price to the X800 XL (US $ 340). So whether if it includes a NV41 or a NV42n, the GeForce 6800 PCI-Express isn’t really interesting.

    Epson still continue to distinguish itself and releases another product for the photo market. The RX700, a new high end multifunction, includes six separated cartridges and a 3200 dpi scanner. It also features a wide LCD color monitor (2.5”) an integrated unit for film numerization, a double paper tray and a memory card player compatible with all formats (according to the press release). The ink drop size is very small: 1.5 picoliter.
    The price also corresponds to a high end product: 399 €.

    Response time improvement won’t only concern 17” and 19” monitors. Samsung will start soon the production of 10 and 8 ms PVA panels for 20 and 21” monitors.

    Just as a reminder, the fastest large monitors tested so far (see our 20” roundup) included 16 ms panels (Dell, LaCie and Philips).
