Default Re: End of the line for GTX 2xx series?

Nvidia is rather clever plus I don't see a shortage of 200 series of cards yet so maybe there are still plenty until next generation hits. Plus if there are a shortage of Nvidia cards it might play into Fermi release with folks glad that Nvidia has another generation out to rush out and buy from their favorite GPU vendor.

Now yes if I was going to buy a gaming card tomorrow it would be from ATI but I am not buying one tomorrow and maybe not this year. So when I do get ready to buy one, things maybe much different and for alot of folks this will be the case. I was previously set on buying a 4870 but when it came time for me to upgrade, the Nvidia designed card was the better deal at that time, I am still extremely happy with it even today. Now the longer ATI has an advantage the more impact it will have on Nvidia.

Spare me the PR spin on the rest, because NV does the same thing... hell they probably taught it to ATI back in the day.

If Fermi comes out and its awesome with magical shaders that are twice as fast because they were re-designed by ninjas, I will buy it. I had a 8800 GTX for almost 2 years and a GTX 280 for 6 months after that, I buy whats good. Right now though, it seems to me NV is pissing on gamers for the sake of spreading into other markets.

Computer gaming is NVIDIA's bread and butter market- companies don't ignore what made them for the sake of diversification. In this case, the "magic shaders" that make Fermi a superior GPGPU solution for other markets also make it a superior gaming GPU.

Fermi is NVIDIA's next "8800GTX" and much more.

I too find it hard to believe NVIDIA will throw in the towel just like that, not like they are in serious financial problems, and besides they've been doing pretty well over the past few years. If they drop it i guess it was just a major change in plans. It would be sad to know that fermi will be the last NVIDIA card i will purchase. I hope not.
