    well this I just saw this banner ad on the nvidia homepage and had a look around some other forums and rumour has it that there will be;
    -7800 GTX (out, duh)
    -7800 GT
    -7800
    in 6days and counting :p.
    If rumour has it right, these cards should be cheaper :D
    YAY

    hmm, should be interesting to see the specs of the pipes/clocks and memory on these to see if they can be unlocked and overclocked in the same way as the 6800 and 6800LE can.

    Yeah - graphics, physics and erm... sound. Or maybe tv stuff like ATi's All-in-Wonder range?

    EDIT: a quick googling suggests that MrWillyWonka is correct.

    Well Geforce G70 + Aegia PhysX + Digital TV Tuner would be rather nice on one card :) Of course if you could SLI the graphics and physics, whilst being able to watch and record a TV channel that would be somewhere a little to the right of mind blowing. Unfortunately NVidia aren't likely to produce something that impressive :(

    Most likely H.264 hardware video decoding, some shaders and some other dull slogan acronym will make up the three components. Zzzzz...
