About a week ago I read in theinquirer.net that NV40 NVIDIA's next chip will have 16 pipelines for processing.

When I read this I waited around in the video cards board for a good thread to get started about it

However, I think no one made mention of it and I was surprized.


is this true?

what does this mean for ATI, is 8 pipelines completely inadquate against 16 pipelines?
