Im extremely excited about the NV35 product lineup and have a few questions. Right now a $400 or $500 dollar video card is out of reach for me and Im now looking at possibly getting the $300 card. Im worried however that NVidia will slightly delay the $300 card like they did with the Geforce4 Ti4400 or sack the card alltogether. For those of you in the know, what kind of emphasis will Nvidia put on the $300 price point?

NV35 Value = FX 5800 (with improvements?)

No, I remeber in reviews they said that a $300 product will be available with the NV35 core.

That's really annoying because we have the same discussion at http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?s=&threadid=11640

Again, I have to double check that with the documents I received, which were not final.

Then again, it could be called FX 5800 on the new core (which would make no sense without additional distinctive name)

Im guessing the $399 part will have same clocks as 5900 Ultra however obviously less ram while the $299 part will have clocks of 400Core/375 Mem. or something like that.

*Edit: Which brings me to my next point, can someone with an 5900 Ultra lower the clocks to about 400/400 or 400/375 and do some Doom3 benches? I guess after that though you might have to take another 5 to 10 fps off for the 256MB onboard.

From Anandtech:

As we mentioned before, NVIDIA will be launching two 128MB boards based on the NV35 core priced at $399 and $299 and varying based on clock speeds

So I don't know hah. I will get back to you when I get more info.

Supposedly the $299 Value NV35 is going to have 256 bit memory interface also.

I really hope in 6 to 7 months the price of these cards will drop as that is when I will be looking to upgrade :)

AFAIK the value 5900 will be a basically a 5800.

128 bit bus, 128mb DDR 1 and nv35 gpu.

No dust buster of course

I belive it's clocked at 350MHz & 700MHz 256bit DDR, regular 400/800 & ultra 450/850MHz.

The Doom benchies were a one time shot. No one can run them again.
