|We understand that Nvidia will introduce a mobile version of NV41. This is a core derived from 6800 Standard or non Ultra, which means that this will be high performance chip.
We are talking about at least eight pipelines, DDR-II or three with up to 256MB of memory and a 256-bit memory interface.
I wonder whether a power connector will be needed, as this core drinks up quite some juice.
We've seen a high end mobile module, not this one specifically, and it's nearly two thirds the size of a normal AGP graphic card. The modules are cooled mostly with heat pipes or active cooling. Due to the size, the modules appear to be limited to desktop replacement notebooks.
This Nvidia chip and notebook based on it will be available later this autumn and it's a PCI Express implementation, but there will also be an AGP version with a bridge chip we are sure.
