I begin to doubt they exist. Supposedly the new 40nm cards are coming in march '09, which leaves them 4-5 months of window to launch a new card, and we still know next to nothing about them. I'm guessing they don't actually exist.

I am starting to believe they don't exsits,They may believe why ,even with the 9800+ the tempertures did'nt drop that much and overclocks was'nt that much higher then a plain 8800GTS which some would reach 840/2025/2250 and just needed one PCIe connector plus they still needed two extra PCIe connectors.They may be putting all there resources in a new chip.I hope so.The only reason to do so would be to take back the performance crown and then they would need a GTX 260 X2.But I could be wrong since nvidia likes to squeeze ever bit of money they can from a new chip.So we still may see a GTX 285 and a GTX 265 and a GTX 265 X2,all built on the 55nm chip.

All I know is, they better hurry up if they want to make the Holiday buying season, otherwise most ppl will be buying an AMD HD4850/4870 Card ...

Well, this news sucks:

Nvidia 270/290 in deep trouble

If one is to wait until Feb. for the shrink, then one might as well wait for the 40nm parts. If this story is true then it will be sweet Christmas for AMD and a crappy one for Nvidia.

I think NV's silence has befuddled the rumor sites. Now they're making stuff up.

I wonder if ATI is makeing any money on the HD4870x2 cards.

Don't ever believe the crap The Inquirer spews. :barf:

I'm still not sure where all this talk of nvidia being completely pwned is coming from.

The Radeon 48xx cards are good but the only one that has a major lead over the competition is the X2, which is still in a niche market since it requires a ton of power, uses multiple GPUs and costs over $500. The GTX 260 and 4870 are pretty even in most cases, with both cards winning by a fair margin in different games and the GTX 260 currently being a bit cheaper than even the 512Mb 4870.

Its like nvidia is suddenly being "zomgwtf steam rolled" because ATI has actually put out something that's competitive for the first time since 2003. Is that how it works now? :p

The Inquirer is probably the main culprit in spreading this FUD.

The press always likes to crown the company with the fastest card out there and right now that's ATI. Once you look past that top contender there are a slew of competitive parts from both companies so you really can't go wrong with ATI or nVidia on the middle and lower range parts.

Why? GTX 280 is still (by far) the fastest single GPU solution on the market.

Different price bracket. Most folks who would throw down that much cash will just go ahead and get the fastest card on the market, which is the X2.
