I will expect your 295 in the mail then?

Send me them. NAO.

Wonder what the price for the 485 will be... and will they stop producing 480's soon?

Swiff.

I bet that's an old engineering sample of the original 512 SP 480 and not indicative of what a 485 would be like. Especially since it's GF100 based and the same A3 revision. 485 would try to shoot for higher clocks IMO. And if this were actually to go on the market I bet it would end up being more like the GTX 260 vs the GTX 260 core 216, more of a replacement rather than a new model. Hexus has a picture of the card and it has two 8-pin pcie connectors, which really isn't too good of an idea for a card that gets a measly few higher frames than a 6-pin/8-pin card.

What's the point of a GTX485? It'd be way more beneficial to wait for a die shrink and then release a bunch of them.

Or is a die shrink too far off?

Die shrink is way way off. ATI is going to have its 6000 series out before the next die shrink. I believe TSMC won't have it until late 2011. Globalfoundries is supposed to be skipping straight to 28 nm tech in early 2011 and supposedly AMD gpus will switch to that. Seems like future GPU battles between nvidia and amd will rely on how those techs go. AMD could be at an advantage yet again. I thought I read something about globalfoundries trying to achieve some very high yield rates and they'll likely improve as the tech matures.

For TSMC the hope is 32 nm process will have fewer yield issues but it seems like we've been down that road before.

For now I think a 485 based on GF104 would be a nice replacement for the 480, if possible. Nvidia is still at a big disadvantage as their chips are much larger. They may not be able to really squeeze out another generation on 40 nm tech unless they just try the rebranding game.

Well, the geforce 9k series sold rather well, why wouldn't re-branded GTX400s?

Because we are so damn tired of it

G80 -> G92 -> G92b and of course G94. I personally never considered them next generation parts even though officially they were. But keep in mind even with those there were die shrinks from 80 nm to 65 nm all the way to 55nm.
