Yeah. They are supposed to launch within 5 weeks and we still know pretty much nothing as far as clocks, benches, and actual performance.

It's really a bit of a strech to state it's the supposed release period either,just unconfirmed rumors,even if they're coming from several hardware sites....The definitive answer is with Nvidia,and they've been silent on release dates,performance,power use and prices.


With ATI possibly releasing refreshes of all their cards in that same rumored timeframe that Fermi is supposed to be released,and even if Fermi did have a performance lead with the original HD5800 lineup,will that be the same with the refresh versions?


Has fermi's window of oportunity to shine as the fastest card on the market come and gone,given all the delays it's suffered so far?.....That's the main question.

Yeah I saw on the nvidia facebook anyone who asks when the release is they respond Q1 Q1 Q1 Q1 Q1 Q1! So I'd say Q1. Maybe quiet is a good thing lets hope we're surprised.

My credit card is going to take a beating when the GTX480 comes out... hopefully getting 2, and might have to get a new PSU as well (I have a PC Power 750W Silencer).

So it's not a given that 5970 Crossfire can handle six 30" easily. I'd say 5970 Crossfire is the sweet spot for 3 30" screens, which already says a lot about the power of such a system. Plus I still think that 1GB is not enough for anything higher than that.
im on a 30'' dell with one 5870, some games it really kills my fps on 2560x1600, but for the most part, i can max out games easy, i think its more driver issues because how it acts when its that high of a res in games. when i updated my drivers to 10.1 i got over 30% in fps gain and windows score is 7.9

Yes, Ill get at least one because I love Nvidia 3d Vision. Id probably wait a while for the price to go down if its over $500ish though.

If it's over 500$ and finally gets released,beating the current HD5870 cards by the rumored 20%,then you'll have the same situation that existed between the HD4870 cards and the GTX280,or between the HD4890 and the GTX285 cards.....Nvidia charging a large premium for a relatively small lead in overall performance,even if you discount the card being released 6 months late,compared to when the HD5870 was released.


And it still doesn't beat the HD5970 cards anyhow,not to mention that there could be refresh cards from ATI shortly after Fermi is released,so Nvidia really screwed up here,at least when it comes to the first generation of the GF100,and it's time to look past that to be honest,into the second or third generation of Fermi,hopefully using a smaller fab process.

Id pay $500 or less for the GTX480 vs. 5870's @ $400ish right now because CF has too many issues. Im not a fanboy, I have a few friends that complain all the time about flickering and whatnot, and I like nvidia's drivers better overall... plus I just spent all this $$ on a 120hz monitor and 3d glasses, so I want to use them heh.

Yes indeed. I would think they would have to release some info, clock speeds and benchmarks pretty soon. Especially if they do intend to release this quarter.

Well at least for 3D vision support,ATI are adding it to the next driver release(Catalyst 10.3),but are keeping it open standard rather than keeping it proprietary like Nvidia is doing,and as for Crossfire support,the driver set they released earlier today(10.2),adds crossfire profiles that are installed as a seperate package and can be updated independently of the actual drivers.


So as soon as a new game hits retail,users can expect updates within days for that game with crossfire support,rather than waiting 1+ month for a new driver release,which was the previous way of getting crossfire support for new games.


I've got a pair of HD5970's right now,and i've been using a pair of HD4870 X2's since those got released in 2008,and from personal experience,at least with the games i've played,crossfire support has been pretty decent overall.


Here's the article so you can read what's coming with the 10.2 and 10.3 driver sets:
