Hello JaKUp,

I can't wait. I'm ready to upgrade! I've got my money saved and ready for a refresh. I think my timing will be perfect since I'm not jumping right on the Vista band wagon.
I'll have A second refresh release NVIDIA DirectX 10 GPU and by that time I hope I can use it to play DirectX 10 games like Unreal Tournament 3!!!!! :D I can't wait! hurry up NVIDIA! I want to spend, spend, spend $$$$$$$$

you strange east florida people:p

I'm hoping for a refresh:D

Then I can move this GTS to my other rig and get a new GPU into this, along with the latest and greatest that Corsair will have to offer:D

Better yet, 8950 Platinum with 1GB of DDR4 Memory and higher clock speeds....

the 8800 series is a 368bit memory interface so it would be 1.4GB of DDR4..

8900GTX with probably 1GB DDR4.

I hope they are planning a solid driver for the 8xxx series

8900 GTX 1.4GB DDR4 Memory Interface 512-bit. I would like to see the 368bit memory interface at 512-bit.

8900 GTX 1.4GB DDR4 Memory Interface 512-bit.

Wouldn't that be 768-bit? 768mb is 384-bit. Just double that to get a 1.4GB card's bandwidth.

G81 with 120GB/sec

Yea, if the R600 launches with a solid driver I think alot of people will drop Nvidia. I'm not a patient person but for right now team red isn't competing. When R600 drops, I may change sides again if their drivers work.

Dual Geforce 8950GX2 in Quad SLi

Core speed of 700mhz
Some nice GDDR4 ~ 1gb would suffice.

DX10....ohhh and only one PCIex dongle required per PCB ....so that's 4 for quad sli...not 8.

What's planned for NVIDIA? Nothing actually. They'll just release mid range part and a budget part which gets most of the income anyway. NVIDIA has the advantage one or another way. If they don't have it in raw game performance, they'll have it in drivers stability one or another way as they have what? Nearly 3 months advantage of real testing of drivers on real systems. Internal beta testing can never reach that kind of level of debugging. And honestly, 8800 GTS/GTX are far from bad even though we don't have any real competition for them. They are top notch cards, drivers are still a bit weak but at least they have them. AMD has no R600 and no working public Catalysts for them (logical, as there is no cards).

Thats not true ATI is testing R600 already. There are drivers

Well they have G80 planned. The only thing it is already out so my question would be what does ATI has to counter G81/85?
