    The growing capabilities of cell phones have long ago inspired demand for mobile GPUs. This time, having dated the release to 3GSM World Congress, NVIDIA unveiled its new GoForce 3D 4800 GPU.

    NVIDIA GoForce 4800 features hardware MPEG-4 decoder supporting resolutions up to 640x480 (can play video from SD cards), hardware JPEG encoder supporting resolutions up to 2048x1536 and hardware game accelerator. Besides, the GPU provides duplex videoconferencing at CIF resolution (352x28:cool: at up to 30 fps.

    As for 3D capabilities, the GPU is said to be 40% more powerful than that of the previous generation (whatever that means), while its shader architecture can map up to 6 textures. According to the press release, GoForce 3D 4800 utilizes nPower innovation that halves energy consumption comparing to other cell phones.

    The first mobile handsets on NVIDIA GoForce 3D 4800 are expected late in 2005 already.
