Many things can go wrong,for example 128 bit bus.If you check beyond3d's article you'll see that radeon 9700 has alomost all the cinefx features like 65xxx vertex shader instructions.And 128bit color internal procesing.Don't think that any card can output that color in the monitor.They just can't handle it.
Waiting for nv30 to see what it's about isn't a bad idea but we can't say nv30 has 256 bit bus just because radeon 9700 has one!!Why can't nvidia fail once?Nothing last's forever.
Anyway my personal opinion-hope is that nv30 will be faster than radeon 9700 because competition is good for my pocket.
