Digit-Life has a nice little technical overview of the G80 , and gets into some detail about the internals of how the G80 functions.

I guess is what people meant by not a "true" Unified Design.

Yeah, It's pretty close, but set up with a granularity that means you cannot do 3 pixel ops and 125 geo ops. You can do 8 and 120 tho, so it's very close. I understand that this design is due to the workload that nVidia has envisioned for the next year or so, but i can't help but think a smaller granularity might make R600 a bit better for DX10.

DX9 performance is great, and the majority or titles in the next year will be DX9-supported, so really thier choice of design is not that important...I'm pretty sure that we will see some minor changes to thier tech is upcoming revisions.
