Any one have any clue (or inside info) on a release date for the new gen of Nvidia and ATI?

Bonus is coming, time to upgrade the 5900nu hehe.

The retail store that I work for is able to get new nVidia cards usually before anyone else. And right now I'm thinking that the end of April is looking good.... not too sure though. I will try to get more info.

Early May most probably.

no idea about ATI's upcoming chip but nvidia will release the nv40 for real early May at the latest in the same quantities as the 5900U was released last year in July.
