I think the 384-bit bus is confirmed, though I donno about the memory. I wish I stilled had the evga 285 1gb that i foolishly returned. I didn't think (at the time) $340 was a worthy upgrade from 8800GTX SLI. Now one of my 8800s died. That 512-bit bus and 1gb memory really made everything smooth. Even GTA4 was like butter.

That's weird, because GTA 4 is more CPU limited. What you need is a quad core.

Price : $299
"Which means from a price stand point it’s going to compete directly against that model (HD5850), no doubt NVIDIA will be aiming the performance of the model more around the HD 5870 area though."

Very interesting

Btw, that SabrePc site appears to be fake according to some of my sources.
Damn if this is true NVIDIA just may well get my money. Sadly they are still just rumors but maybe NVIDIA finally gets it. I can hope, I have a 4870 and want to upgrade within the year and it might look like I could be going NVIDIA with prices like that.

My guess is 299 and 399...and the 5870 will go down to 349

Unless NVIDIA's next-gen can match the Radeon 5870 in offering low GPU temps and fan noise, I won't be interested.

I despise having to use headphones to drown out fan noise from a graphics card running at full-speed, such as the GeForce GTX 295.

I'm aware that the GeForce GTX 295 is based on a dual-GPU, but NVIDIA's single-GPU cooling solutions have been very effective.

Cooling three billion transistors, without water-cooling, is a huge challenge, but time will tell.

Can't wait for the reviews!
