    Been waiting for these... i have a 7900GS and an FX5950 Ultra in my 2 PCs.
    Gonna put the 9800 in place of the 7900GS and the 7900GS in place of the 5950U (DX 8 Cheesecake!!!)
    and the 5950 will probably go somehwere but im not sure.
    but finally we have a timeline on when they will be out.

    As fast as what nVidia releases new cards, I'd much rather have an HD3870 now... and then buy another one or two or three and still be quite satisfied.

    I hate this literal jump to new hardware every few months. Games are being pumped out at a crappy speed ( I say that because a lot of DX10 games suck). Come on developers, get with the program. Having "the" best graphics dosnt mean a hill a beans if the story aint worth two cents. Look at the HL series, excellent story is key. Looks is second.

    I think the industry is hell bent on hardware development atm, since everyone and there brother can create great looking games with no actual decent story.

    I honestly think its becoming hit or miss with games. Sad really...

    *sigh*

    I expect to see the Geforce 9800 be like when the Geforce 7800 was released.
    An (to the eye of the consumer) and overclocked Geforce 6800 with 4 new features.


    From a source I cannot say, I know what will be new in DX10.1
    In DX10.1 it will make all the optional things in DX10.0 be mandatory, the Geforce 8800 does support this.
    Then it has independent blend modes per MRT, cubemap arrays and per-sample shading.
    Technically, independent blend modes per MRT and cubemap arrays can be achieved with the GeF-8800, but at reduce performance, the last think cannot be achieved.
    I can't say more I'm afraid, I might get some people in trouble :(

    It's said that D9E would employ over 2TFlops performance and force ATI to release their R700 (and 3870x2 falls).
    If this is true, we gonna have a real next-gen visual experience! especially on Crysis 2!

    Cheers.
