It just doesn't seem a snap of the fingers and "relatively" guaranteed like so many seem to think.
i thought NV35 was using the low-k dielectric? oh well, i'm kind of drifting right now, through all the rumors. i thought that was one of the "confirmed" rumors, but maybe i'm smoking some of the good stuff
i think it's pretty clear they either need low-k for high clockspeed, or 256bit bus for more bandwidth, or both, in order to compete.
