    Im really really looking forward for this product. I am very confident that this card will be a beast, provided Nvidia adopt DDR5 and get it right aswell as the above stated features.

    I doubt AMD/ATi's first DX11 card would be able to compete with Nvidia's first DX11 card, untill ATi play catchup again.

    Now if it'll have 512-bit bus (i sincerely doubt it), then it'll be a proper monster XD

    (512-bit + GDDR5 = :eek:)

    why would you doubt that? It's more than double the card of the current GT200, there is no way they would leave it to have a 256bit bus, so that it can have amost the same transfer rate as the current generation.

    Wow I'm so glad I didn't hurry up!
    I been really holding myself not to get a GTX295 and decent PSU for my desktop....

    Q4 is just perfect for me - I'll be using the laptop mainly till mid-October.
    Then I'll buy the GT(X?)300 and a car battery ehh PSU.

    Wonder what the cost would be? And whether I should be spending so much..... I've saved enough for a GTX295 and PSU now.... so by October I'd have saved more...:rolleyes:

    I was thinking they'd go 384-bit (like 8800) to keep the cost down... it'll be expensive, that's for sure

    Nice pack to play with. I betcha though that ATI will retaliate with perhaps 1000+ stream processors.

    Or hopefully a new architecture that is better than the current.

    I'm thinking I'll have to save up and get two of these just for that reason. All genetic diseases will cry out in unison when these things start folding. Or maybe that would be capacitor whine. I dunno, but do want.

    When ati releases their 5xxx series I expect these to drop in price and buck to have a brand new folding farm.

    That is if they don't need an incredibly powerful PSU to run, I think he may be going for power efficiency with his folding farm, his electricity bills must be through the roof.

    Hey, I'm looking forward to this time next year, when I can get one at a reasonable price, like my recent GTX 285. :)

    The GTX 280 and 285 already use a 512bit bus. and the GTX 260/265's use a 448bit bus.

    Why would nvidia want to keep costs down on their new flagship card? They'd want to go all out to throw the gauntlet down to ATI.

    I thought that as well they would launch a supercard, that may be stupidly priced, just to crush AMD in the fight for top dog. However I want to see just how many the "stream processors/shaders AMD stick on there next model. To be honest I think this is just a retaliatory press release to keep the nVidians happy that they are going to have to wait an extra month or two for the next wave of cards.

    Hah, Quarters in business terms have nothing to do with seasons or locations. It's simply the 3-month sector of a calendar year. Q4 = October through December. Now, you could dig deeper into Fiscal years, which are determined by the company. For instance, the company's Fiscal year that I work for is April to April.
