If nV fails...then it's not good for anyone. Prices may climb slightly higher or the 8000 series (respin) launch will simply be pushed back to maximize current generation sales.
This is what I hope happens. I'm almost certain I'll be getting the 7870 but want to see what NV brings to the table first.
