That's quite a jump for card, that suffers from bad yields.
It's impressive how it's at 2/3 of the 7970 users already...however I"m sure many users were holding off on the 7970 waiting to see what nV had in the pipeline.

Right now if I want to upgrade I have no choice...it's 7970 for 449, 7950 for 349 or wait for availability on the 680. Paying for something then waiting for it to be built/shipped isn't kosher for me.

Edit:

Looks like people have been waiting a month for them from NCIX.com
