Well the 7800GTX is out... and the 7800GT is coming from what I read.... But will there be a plain 7800 (7800NGTX, heh) or maybe a 7800LE like with the 6800s. Also what about the pipes, would a plain 7800 have the same pipes as a 6800U?

i guess it's only a matter of time...
as i see it the want to sell some 6800X that they still have in stoke in order to make some $$$ of the "old" generation plus when ATi hit with new tech R520 they will probably hit the mid and low end market with the new toys.

Well don't you think it's kind of cheap of nvidia to releases GTX's first. I mean I know a lot of people who got 6800GT's because of their "almost sure" ability to OC into an Ultra.

How? They released 6800 Ultras before the GTs last year. And if you'll recall the Ultras had more overclocking headroom than the GTs so the overclocking point is kind of moot. Some people don't mind paying a premium for superior performance.

Well whatever, I don't wanna get offtopic. I'm just wondering about the other 7800's coming out.

Well, nothing's been officially announced apart from the 7800 GT, so we can only speculate.
