Interesting that the NDA doesn't expire until launch... Why dont they want us to know anything about it before we buy it?

NVIDIA: We want to apologize for the confusion around our most recent GF100 update. To clarify, the launch date for GeForce GTX 480 and GTX 470 is March 26, 2010. This date also coincides with the GeForce LAN event NVIDIA is hosting at PAX 2010. Hope you can attend the show. For more info, please visit: www.nvidia.com/paxeast
Edit: Oh boy, 480 is $699.99.

It's a pretty common practice in the graphics industry Ninja Prime. I know second tier companies like ATi sometimes opt to do "paper launches", but NVDIA hasn't done this for a long time.

They saw how angry the customers got with ATi's X800XT Phantom Edition, and decided to keep availability of parts and information simultaneous since then.

The whole gaming world has been speculating about the date this card launches, NVIDIA told them today.

Now anyone who wants to buy a HD5870 in the next 32 days can at least decide whether they want to wait the 32 days and have a NVIDIA option in their buying choices.

When you're considering spending $400+, 32 days is not that long to wait. If it's too long to wait, my opinion is "for one month of having the best single GPU card out, the user traded eleven months of having the best single GPU card". Because the GTX480 is faster than a HD5870, has more features, and is an evolution in GPU arch.

The 5870 is going to look kind of, well, "pale" in comparison very soon. (sooner yet for some of us!)
Well to be fair the article says "Test drive our highly-anticipated, next-generation GPU…you may even be able to buy one before anyone else"

That may be when the NDA is up but that doesn't mean I can hop over to Newegg and pick one up. You may can mean many things. But seeing as you obviously have the inside scoop I'll trust you when you say that they will launch for sale on the 26th. But you can see were some people would think it's and announcement to make and announcement.

Where did you get that? From the fake pre-order site linked earlier today?

My guess is the answer will lie somewhere in between.
I never mentioned ATi...will there be cards for everyone, that's all. Or will we be paying 1, 2, 3 hundred over msrp ?

I like how you trash ATI for tactics NV invented. At least they had the courtesy to release benchmarks on the 5870 2-3 weeks before it came out, I guess NV isn't that confident though.
