Default Re: Nvidia may be in trouble according to this article

Real availability of GTX 470 and 480 cards only starts in may at the earliest it seems,and they even state that more budget oriented DX11 class GPU's aren't important since users buying cards in those prices ranges don't demand the latest functionality and that Nvidia's current DX10,DX10.1 cards are fabulous for that segment,so that leaves ATI with their HD5500/5600/5700 cards with the mainstream/budget DX11 market all to themselves basically.

It looks like ATI has won this generation by default.

I bought an 8800 GTX, and now I've bought a 5870. Both are epic WIN!
