nForce2 Delay on purpose?
 
Could NVIDIA be waiting for the 333FSB launch in October to release its nForce2???

Sounds like perfect timing to me....I hope it's sooner though...

:D

Maybe they're looking to iron out bugs, etc to prevent problems people were having with the first nForce release. I hope that's the case because I'd hate for NVIDIA to have history repeat itself.

nvidia seem liek the company to learn from their mistakes though...

There's no delay. Board manufacturers are just going into full production swing and product should be out very shortly.

Why wait?
 
Why wait for the 333MHz Athlons? If nVidia gets their nForce2 out now, bug-free and with features that people want, then all we'll have to do is add the processor to get a 33MHz FSB system. If they wait, people might not want the processor with the chipset and may wait a while.

Well it makes a lot of sense that nVidia would make absolutely sure their boards are compatible with 333 FSB before releasing them.

They (NVIDIA) could take advantage of the publicity of the AMD-announcement/launch and ride the marketing wave to the bank.

We all know NVIDIA will be waiving the 333FSB flag....we all know it already supports it...

Yeah if you saw they video all they could go on about was the Athlon's 333Mhz FSB more so then the built in video & sound lol.

i think nvidia is going to have a huge release at fall comdex this year... or at least im hoping that they will. all these new products nforce 2 nv30 nv28 nv 18 why not release them all at once at the biggest trade show in the u.s. hmmm just my two cents

Good idea
 
Good idea. It would cause marketing overload and force people to maybe buy a combination of all three. Coolness :)

That said some might just get fed up waiting and buy something else.

Maybe
 
Maybe. Then again, maybe not - and the people who don't buy it will probably research it anyway and will eventually buy it at a later date. My father is like that; he'll research something for a long time before buying it; he does that to make sure he's getting what he wants.
