NVIDIA GT214, GT216 chips

NVIDIA has greater plans for 40nm manufacturing technology than just the GT212, according to anonymous sources in the video card industry. While the GT212 is expected to replace the GTX 280 as NVIDIA's high-end consumer processor, the GT214 and GT216 should supplant the more mainstream G94 and G96 chips currently in use. Towards the bottom of the market will be the GT218, serving as an entry-level dedicated processor.

The very base of the market should be taken up by the integrated iGT209 chipset, substituting for GeForce 9300 and 9400 chipsets used in computers such as the newest MacBooks. NVIDIA has so far refused to confirm or deny any plans however, noting that it does not want to discuss unannounced products.
