The original thread here having become unwieldy. . . . The B3D Forum Conventional Wisdom Watch (Minority Reports noted): D3D10, 500M+ transistors, release sometime between September and end of the CY, probably 80nm (tho I've seen a minority report for 90nm), possibly GDDR3 with > 256-bit bus rather than GDDR4, HDR+AA. More new goodness on the AA side too, details unclear. Non-unified ps/vs. Power-hungry beastie, almost certainly with improved cooling vs G71. Taking requests to add to this list. Do we have a unit count we are willing to point at as the Conventional Wisdom at this point? Xbit reported 48ps. . .willing to go with that for the moment? Depending on how lazy I and my brethren are, we might try to keep this OP updated with particularly interesting new tidbits as they come in downstream, as an experiment to see how it works.
