The dual GPU GK110 cards and highest end GK 112 single GPU being Q4 2012 or even early 2013, and if true Nvidia just handed the high end GPU market to ATI on a silver platter, and no matter how you cut it, slice it or dice it, that's not a short time period at all...
Again, i have access to info and people you do not as I'm under NDA with NVIDIA.

But also again, I think you and Ninja Prime should buy some 7970s asap! With the high end market for 2012 totally abandoned by NVIDIA, you might as well buy now, buy many!

Everyone else I advise to wait a bit.
