Honestly, I think your logic is 180 degrees backwards. Unless Nvidia can significantly outperform the 9700 with their .13u part, they will run out of options sooner. TSMC and UMC won't have a 0.9u process ready next year and ATi can move to both .13u and DDR2. No, Nvidia has got to significantly outperform the 9700 or pray that ATi has serious problems redesigning the chip for the .13u process.
