The latest I've heard is that Altera intends to have their first Stratix V GT with 28 Gbps transceivers ready in mid to late 2011. That would be the 622K LE device referenced in the table above. I would expect that Xilinx and Altera will continue to leapfrog each other in their product announcements and technology related to these high performance devices.

Anyone want to guess how long it will take to send the HD version of Avatar (the 3hr special directors cut) at 2.8 Terabits a second? Visit back in a few days for the answer. (A hint- it's much shorter than 3hrs...)

Hi Max Yes it is impressive – but first devices available in 2012... That’s taking early announcements to a new level. A lot can happen in the 12-18 months until then. I don’t recall seeing an estimated shipping date from Altera for Stratix V GT devices, but they have time to counter with a device that has more than the four 28G transceivers. The Xilinx announcement looks to be a direct response to the GT, even down to having a video demonstration.

When we start talking about one FPGA with 16 28Gbps transceivers and 72 13.1Gbps transceivers ... well, I don;t know about you, but my mind boggles...
