Nvidia Corp. has announced the GeForce Go FX 5700, a significant step up in performance from the companys earlier mobile graphics chip, the Go FX 5600.
Nvidias latest chip contains three vertex pipelines to the 5600s one, a boost that will translate into significantly higher graphics performance, according to Nvidia executives. By tweaking some of the chips attributes, allowing the chip to run at a lower voltage, Nvidia maintained the same power budget as the Go FX 5600.
The new chip also includes two new technologies: UltraShadow, for improving the perfoemance of shadows in 3D games, and PowerMiser 4.0, part of the reason Nvidia was able to fit the Go FX 5700 in the 5600s power budget.
