You all keep defending your purshase which is so Bias , it was a failure to Nvidia and that is why
1. It missed dead line and first NV30 was released way later then R300 ( Nvidia lost customers )
2. Nvidia received negative views from alot of people remember Dustbuster cartoons ?
3. Performed slower then excpected bad PR alot of lies remember ?,
4. Even Nvidia them selfs buryed all info regarding NV30 (5800) you woun't find it anymore at nvidia.com .
Later revisions were improvements but still lacking power and finess , so if its not a success for company must be a failure , at time competition had better card plain and simple why denie it
remember we compareing Nvidia to ATI not some hopeless 3rd party companys XGI .. ect.
