Re: Nvidia's 40nm GT212 to have 384 SPs, 96 TMUs, and 256-bit 7Gbps GDDR5
Upgrading is a big problem today.
You can buy a GTX 285/295 in the next days, or you can wait for the GT212 close to the summer, or finally, you can wait for the DX11 GT300 at the end of the year.
Dunno what you think, but, the GT212 should have been the answer to the 4870X2 (and not this GTX295), and the GT300 should have been scheduled for the summer launch with Windows 7.
Just my personal thoughts as a buyer in the 2009 crisis:
If i buy the GTX 285 now, i will wait for the GT300 & skip the GT212.
If i wait now, and buy the GT212, i will cry when the GT300 arrives with the rumored 512bit GDDR5 memory subsystem.
If i do not buy anything till GT300, as 8800GTX user, i'll be playing DMC4 only till it arrives.
