    I am going to go out on a limb here and say that these will just be redone chips for the new 9800GTX rebrand-rebranded brand.

    The thing is that the 8800/9800 and 240 (Which they didn't use due to public outrage) actually are EXACTLY the same. These would be smaller manufacturing

    The 9800 GT used G92b, which was manufactured on a 55nm process while the 8800 GT/G92 was manufactured on a 65nm process. I seriously doubt we'll see another rebrand/die shrink - I'm expecting either GT200-based stuff [for mobile] and GT300, but I could be wrong.

    well this will help them make more money surely but I dont see any advances at this time coming from it, as other have said its probably going to be mainly rebranded GPUs, the plus side is maybe they will have more dual GPU options and maybe just maybe they get smart and build it on ONE PCB board instead of super gluing two together ~_~

    Nvidia's fiscal year is strange, in that FY 2009 ended in Q1 2009

    I hope this isn't a major change, for the sake of the company. How can they afford the R&D for a new batch of chips, when they'll have to start all over for DX11 and Win7? I'm actually looking forward for just dieshrinks of their current line, a resurgence of single-slot performance GPUs will make me happy. (Who else loved the 7800GTX?)

    I'm pretty sure these chips will be DX11 compliant docodine :)

    Agreed, I loved that single slot 7800GTX, strange looking though ,as the Dual slot one looked really cool.

    On another note, i wouldn't mind if they Die Shrinked the 9800GT again but sold it as a low end card.
