    nvidia kinda did the same thing with the 8800 gts > G92 and they were alot better and really just a revision i think. Wouldn't not surprise me if ATI do the same with the femi release.

    Nvidia still holds almost double the market cap of ATi. That won't be for quite a while.

    +1 I am the same way. But just with so many of the things Nvidia has done Business wise..... I don't think I could ever switch totally to the green team.
    They make a great card..... But they also make a great re badging too..... on everything! LOL

    If it wasn't for ATI we would still all be using some re badge of the 8800 series

    TBH with you if i wasnt stuck with having to use an AMD board for Future expansion Id use a NF motherboard again aslong as its quality is very high and the chipset doesnt become a nuclear reactor like the NF2 does.

    this is very possible. Next-gen chips take years of work to move from design to layout to test chips to production. I bet ATI and Nvidia have at least 3 generations of designs in their pipelines right now. The 5xxx teams are probably starting design-detail/layout work on the 8xxx series for 18nm right now so that they will be ready in 2013. Remember that the first 40nm products were supposed to come out in late 2008
    http://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/news/1022305/tsmc-delays-40nm
    The 40nm generation was almost 3/4 year behind schedule.
    A new architecture 6xxx series for late 2010 (early 2011) on GF 28nm is probably "on schedule" and it just feels like a quick refresh (less than 1 year between 5xxx and 6xxx) because of the 40nm production problems.

    Here is a 2004 article detailing projected production nodes and years
    http://www.eetimes.com/news/latest/showArticle.jhtml?articleID=51000381
    2007 45nm, 2009 32nm, 2011 22nm which was not too far off. Based on 2004 planning 28nm half-node was scheduled for 2010.

    Think I might just have to pick up a 5850, clock the crap out of it and be happy then. Normally it seems a generation lasts 1.5 years, this would be too short term for me to invest in, not to mention a OC'd 5850 is plenty enough firepower.

    Wait a couple more months when Femi releases I almost guarantee a 5870 will be the same price as a 5850

    Well, according to the latest Steam hardware survey, most people are using an 8800 series or a rebadge of it.
    Add the 8800s to the 9800s and you get a whopping 20% of the overall gaming market. That's a lot.


    So it's not a time to be sorry for nVidia and turn it into the underdog. Not yet.

    That is because there is a lot larger majority of non enthusiasts then enthusiasts.

    My whole point was if there was no competition than there would be no progress only re badging.

    Hey .... wait..... isn't that what Nvidia does anyway? LOL It's just to bad that Femi is late I mean how long does it take to create the 5th generation of 8800 re badging? But maybe they still can't get it right LOL J/k guys :)

    AMD could release the HD6000 series by the end of the year but all indications point to a release when the new GF is completely up and running and thats not expected till Q1 2011.

    might be right aleska
