Secret about the name of the NV30 revealed? First pictures!
The presentation of the new nVidia miracle chip with the current code name NV30 is getting closer and closer. After the first technical details, the official name of the chip no longer seems to be a secret! The GeForce 4 successor will therefore not be called GeForce 5, but GeForceFX.
The corresponding domain GeForceFX.com , which also points to nVidia, has already been registered. It was clear that nVidia would not invent a completely new brand name for the NV30, because the generic term 'GeForce' is simply too well known for that. Since nVidia has referred to the CineFX engine and its cinematic effects several times in advance ( see also ), the name GeForceFX seems more than appropriate for the NV30.
In the meantime, nVidia has published a 6.68 MB video as part of their 'Are you Ready' campaign , which apparently shows the first prototypes of the NV30 and the one equipped with it Graphics card shows.
