I don't think it was rushed, heck, it might even be a little delayed since the NV30 was 6 months late.
But I don't think you're looking at a card that will be signifigantly faster than the R9800PRO. Will it be faster, yes.
My bet is that Nvidia will again be the perfromance leader, after nearly a year in second place........Only to have ATI re-take the lead, drastically, with their fall offering. And so on, and so on, and so on.....
Infact, NV35 is ahead of schedule, but their plan is if one product is delayed it dosnet effect any of the ohters, they just kept on pluggin along on doing what they do with the other stuff.
