Go to Beyond3D and actually read what Tim had to say. His timeframe was inside of 18 months, which puts us well before 2006 and within the lifespan of products such as R3xx and nV3x.
Just to clarify: when I say inside the lifespan of current products, I mean for the general consumer, not the hardcore gaming nut who changes top end video cards more often than his underwear.
