Nvidia Corp. will finally start selling its highly-anticipated GeForce GTX 400-series graphics cards as well as other products based on the code-named Fermi architecture and GF100 (NV60, G300, GT300) graphics processing unit (GPU) in the first quarter of fiscal 2011, it looks like mass availability of appropriate products is only expected in Q2 of FY 2011.

Q2 [of FY 2011] is going to be the quarter when Fermi is hitting the pull stride. It will not just be one Fermi product, there will be a couple of Fermi products to span many different price ranges, but also the Fermi products will span GeForce Quadro and Tesla. So, we are going to be ramping now on Fermi architecture products through Q2 and we are building a lot of it. I am really excited about the upcoming launch of Fermi and I think it will more than offset the seasonality that we usually see in Q2, said Jen-Hsun Huang, chief executive officer of Nvidia, during the most recent conference call with financial analysts.

I'm ready

Maybe it is or not,the point being is that even from as way back as july of 2009,charlie has been stating that Fermi is a no show for 2009,even when Nvidia's own CEO stated that a november 2009 release for fermi was possible,and charlie also suggested that it depended on the number of revisions that fermi required in the end,which he also stated 6+ months ago,that if Fermi required 3 revisions,we wouldn't see it until march of 2010 at the earliest.


This latest article simply adds that clock speeds for Fermi aren't what Nvidia wanted initially(750/1500Mhz was the mark),or that yeilds are still crappy even now with the A3 revision,even with the chips clocked at 600Mhz and having 64 shaders disabled,and even then still using 280 watts of power in the process.


It was stated months ago that fermi "Should" be 60% faster than cypress initially,but i'm guessing that would be if the clocks really were 750/1500 as initially intended,with the full 512 shaders enabled.


But like you said,we'll see next month for the truth,should the retail versions of Fermi run no faster than 600 Mhz with 448 SP enabled,really consumes 280 watts and availability really is that limited to under 10 000 cards for the first production batch,and keep in mind that like him or hate him,charlie hasn't been wrong with regards to fermi so far,so that's something to keep in mind.

Let me educate you:

Iz3d requires you to use THEIR specific monitors that are two LCDs stacked upon eachother and require you to use THEIR polarized glasses. They also have a method of using shutter glasses but you have to use with a limited range of TVs which means the same selection of tvs as supported by Nvidia.

AMD talked about a broader approach during the last CES but that approach is NOT available yet thus potentially vaporware much like Duke Nukem 3d. Meanwhile Nvidia's solution is mature and immediately available.

I have the Iz3d and Nvidia solutions at my house and have used both and I have been sponsored by both companies.

The point is that you have more options than simply what's on Nvidia's list of supported hardware,and can use whatever 3D glasses you want as well.

Again, their solution is as available as Duke Nukem Foverver. I personally am not going to forgo all other games since Duke Nukem Forever is right around the corner.

Err...The graphics hardware supports it just fine with just a driver update,which is coming with the Catalyst 10.3 driver set next month,and you can pick wichever monitor you like as long as it supports 120 hz refresh or use whatever 3D glasses you wish to use with those displays.


if you want to use IZ3D's,or any other kit that's sold as a package,go for it...If you want to use seperate parts for the displays and glasses,that come from different hardware vendors,that's cool too....The consumer has the choice in the end.


EDIT:Here's some models for glasses.

You're probably thinking of the Geforce FX 5800, not the Quadro FX 5800.

The quadro currently costs around $3000.

Same, I can't wait to see some real benchmarks from the GTX 480 I hope Fermi was worth it I currently have a GTX 285 and really satisfied with this monster, ok it was kinda pricy when it was out but all in all there's not one game out there that this card can't handle so I hope that will be the same with the GTX 480 but then for future DX11 games offcourse

If Fermi is a failure you will see me crying that day and the days afterwards (yes, I'm a little green goblin here hehe =p I had some bad experiences with ATI in the past, mostly driver issues)

ps : sorry for my bad english ^^
