Too bad it's technology progression without too much additional speed... Again. I don't really care about 5C extra heat, or 30 of 40W extra load power.

The way its going now is just like last year: 8800GTX > 8800GTS > 9800GTX, 9800GTX+.

9800GTX+ is cheaper, more energy efficient, and cooler than a 8800GTX, but not (much) faster.

The GTX285 is not much faster than a GTX280 too... Sadly enough. Old tech, smaller process...

It's really time for something new imho. And something faster.

I hope the GT212 or GT300 will be out soon. I will be the first one to buy it. If its fast.
