in few months ATI 4780x2 which will most likelly beat GTX 280

and in about 3+ months a new revision of GT200, most likelly called GT200b on 55nm = less heat, higher clocks.

like 55nm G92 called Geforce 9800GTX+, I think the next revision will be called GTX 260+ and 280+.

Cheaper or the same ridiculous $650 price tag?

I think the R700 is just under 2TF

EDIT: Nope, it's 2.4TF (well, the 4870 is 1.2)

650 for a video card that can last two years with great performance is not ridiculous

8800gtx was bitched about at launch for being way too expensive by many on this board

Was great investment for me as didnt have to upgrade till now for AoC 2560x1600 without having to use sli (replacing my two 8800's for one 280 to cut down on heat)

I agree that while the GTX 280 is too expensive, the price is not that far off base when compared to other video card launches like the 8800 GTX. To get the fastest card, you have to pay a premium price. Many will argue that the 9800 GX2 or even two 8800 GTs in SLI are just as good, but I'd say you were DEAD WRONG. If you look strictly at benchmarks, this may be so. However, gameplay is a completely different story. The GTX 280 provides smooth gameplay for me in Crysis at 1920X1200 with everything on HIGH and three settings on VERY HIGH. The only time I may see a little stutter is in highly textured areas. My 9800 GX2 used to stutter all over the place in this game. Also, the Medusa demo is silky smooth while the 9800 GX2 had a lot of stutter. The 1GB of RAM and 512-bit memory are the biggest advantages of this card!!!!

difference is that 8800GTX was pretty much top of the line for close to 2 years, while GT280 will be replaced with better product by the end of this year, maybe in 3-4 months

It might be a bit cheaper but appearantly the 55nm G92b only managed a 11% die shrink from the 65nm, so the GT 200b die probably still wont be below 500mm square, which means it will still be expensive, they might save enough to drop it to $599.
