I wonder if this means the 8800 "ultra" will also be delayed...

Why do you trust this news of INQ?:captnkill:

find another source or its not true... :thumbdwn:

Actually, I'm just in denial that Nvidia is pulling an ATI here.

Well the smaller the die shrink the harder it is. So why do you find it's not true? Why do you think AMD took so long to get their 65nm out?

I think they want to have as many people buy only G80s for as long as they can:p

The inquirer posts so much BS because they know that people love to link to it from places like this and slashdot anyways, which gets them ad revenue to make more BS. If people would quit linking to it then that would solve half of the problems.

I hope they are wrong.. The sooner they get these cards out, the sooner the mass's will buy these cards, the sooner the overal pc gamer community "performance avg" gets raised... The easier it is to get newer games released to take advantage of the new performance levels.. which in turn allow more games to take advantage of the high end cards (instead of just raising the resolultion/aa/af)

Conflicting reports (http://www.dailytech.com/NVIDIA+Holds+Back+G84+G86+Cards/article6616.htm).

They will pop up as soon as AMD puts out their R600 line and who knows when that actually will be. I've been hearing dates all over the place from April to June.

BTW :p

I actually agree with this. Not that it is a bad thing. The 8800GTS 320 is at a very good price point, so even now most can get a very fast GFX card to compliment their existing hardware, or new hardware, while still being faster than anything the competition has out right now.

Heck, there is already quite a bit of milking going on when you consider how well these things are clockin, at least in the case of 8800GTS 640. Mine are 100% stable at 636/2002 and I've benched with the core at 660+, and I haven't even looked for the ceiling yet.

Anyone waiting, well, enjoy the wait. Meanwhile, just keep that AA and AF down low :D

As much as I like the idea of an 8600GT I really can't help but wonder whether it is really worth it. I mean, there aren't really any DX10 games availiable yet and also, I need to find a reason why it is better than my X1950Pro (shes a beauty she is...)

Probably because they know their drivers arent up to scatch yet and they dont want to flood the market with mainstream cards that only half-work on Vista :rolleyes:

Very good point.

It's also true that if ATI is going to delay their new cards again that Nvidia has no reason to release something that will hurt the sales of their current flagship. It's good marketing on their part weather they're really having problems or not.

Oh well. Glad I'm already on the 8800 train. :D

BTW, is it just me, or does it seem like 6 months is a really long time for Nvidia to have the flagship crown? That's about how long the 8800's have been on the market and unanswered as not only the fastest card, but its also the only card capable of DX10.

Way to go ATI... :rolleyes:
