There is no point in nVidia maintaining such an accelerated developement schedule in the current economic downturn. Designing a mid-range GPU based off the GT200 would produce a GPU that is amazingly similar to G92, so why waste money developing it at an accelerated rate when they can just use G92 instead?
That is the perfect answer to everyone whining about rebranding. I was just about to write it myself, and even though it can be improved, I believe it should be quoted and placed somewhere so that everyone can see it. It would save us a lot of stupid questions.
