For Nvidia fanboys it must be an early Christmas. Evidence of new Nvidia’s GPU’s are found in the latest set of drivers.
"Nvidia posted a $141 million loss in its second fiscal quarter, which ended August 1. Losses have widened since the same period last year, when the outfit was $105 million in the red.
Nvidia was forced to cough up $193 million for faulty mobile chips shipped in 2008. Had it not, it would have been profitable, but just barely. The company was also forced to take a significant inventory writedown due to poor demand.
What will interest most about this update is bug fixes for the new Mafia 2. The new NVIDIA PhysX System Software (9.10.0513) supports GeForce 400-series, 300-series, 200-series, 100-series, 9-series, and 8-series GPUs (with minimum of 32 cores and a minimum of 256MB dedicated graphics memory).
We are pleased to inform you that another version of VF3000 series, VF3000N supporting NVIDIA GeForce high end VGA cards is now available. This model is capable to support GTX260,270,280 and 285 graphic cards with superb cooling performance in silent operation.

Nvidia on Monday said it is leading a team awarded 25 million dollars by Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to create a chip that leaves today's super computers in the dust.
The Nvidia team was on of four granted DARPA research contracts aimed at making supercomputers a thousand times more powerful with technology from graphics processing units (GPUs) used to power realistic videogame action.
Intel is supreme
Nvidia is in double digit decline while its rivals AMD and Intel give it a good kicking. According to figures from Jon Peddie Research, Intel still holds the top spot while Nvidia saw double-digit declines in most segments.
If you take a closer look at the Mac Pro and iMac refreshes this week, you'll notice that Apple has ditched Nvidia graphic parts in favor of strictly choosing ATI GPUs.
From a technology perspective, Nvidia right now has the shinier bullet point list with its Fermi-based chips, but all iMac and Mac Pro options are comprised of ATI's Evergreen family.
The International Trade Commission has announced its findings in the NVIDIA/Rambus patent infringement lawsuit and it's not the sort of ruling Team Green would've preferred. The commission found NVIDIA to be in violation of three Rambus patents. The trade panel also granted an injunction Rambus had requested, which theoretically prevents NVIDIA and the various companies attached to the lawsuit (Asus, HP, Palit, and MSI among others) from selling products that contain the infringing IP. This last bit sounds more ominous than it actually is; there's a 60-day window before the injunction takes effect and NVIDIA believes it has other options.
Advanced Micro Devices passed Nvidia in graphics chip shipments in the second quarter, according to a report from a marketing research on Wednesday, adding to Nvidia's woes.
