    NVIDIA is prepping the already confirmed GT200 graphics chip for an early July launch several sources reported last week. In order to counter ATI and their RV770 GPU which is almost complete, NVIDIA will launch GT200 powered GeForce 9900 graphics cards hoping to take the performance crown from ATI once again using old but proved tactics. The first two models from the GeForce 9900 series will be 9900 GTX and 9900 GTS instead of the previously speculated GeForce 9900 GT.

    Sounds like ATI needs to catch up. I cannot wait for the 4xxx series and comparing it to the 99xx series.

    Maybe I should wait on buying that XFX 9800 GTX Black Edition card I have been saving for. 9900 GTX sounds like it might be a better upgrade.

    Wait.... i was pretty sure the 9900 series was a die shrink.... and i heard that its actually something more along the lines of a 3870x2. 2 chips on one board. Then again everything is a rumor anyway :p

    Or better yet xfire 2 4870 w/ 1gb GDDR5 instead of the x2 because you know its always going to have slower clocked memory.

    Yeah I'm probably going to do xfire on my next build because its all matx boards can handle. (I'm not counting the socket 939 SLI board, its outdated.)

    My guess is that nVidia is pulling the launch ahead to counter ATI. But the availability will probably be very limited the first month or two.
    A Sapphire representative told me the same about RV770. In june the supply will be tight but will pick up in july.

    Yeah I didn't see them waiting to the end of summer. They're not just gonna let ati rake in profits from a new tech w/o a challenge.

    The way i figure is ATI taking the crown until nVidia launches it's new series. However, i believe the distance ATI had to nVidia will get considerably smaller. This is only speculation, though.

    very interesting...it will be lots of fun to see how the 99xx series does compared to the 4xxx series...but to be honest i thought with the release of a new core they would have had a new name...but i never really understood nvidia's logic for there cards names...at any rate it will still be nice to see how these cards battle it out over the upcoming months

    IMO, nVidia screwed up with the naming of their cards but, instead of correcting this with newer generations of cards, they kept their mistake ...

    ATI also did this (the HD2900 comes to mind), but not as much.

    well if the GT200 rumors are true we can expect 384 real shader units, 64rops, a 512bit bus, and 1gb of ram.

    yea very true imo nvidia messed up big time with the g92 gts and gt those should have been called 9 series cards if ya ask me...

    if those stats are true than ATi might need to keep a close watch on this....
