    +1 to w00ters RAPE COMEBACK.


    At least were not like ATI and over producing to many cards in 1 series.

    Yeh thats what i said, How many diffrent cards are in the HD 4000 series and why on gods name do they need so many.

    ATI 5000 series still wins. and w00ter you seem like a nvidia fanboy, i really like nvidia, but id rather use a HD 5850 then my GTX 260, sorry bro :D

    ATI fanboys sounds like ATI has never renamed anything [rofl]

    Its about time they fixed the naming scheme though as it was really getting out of hand, Im excited to see how much this chip roflstomps the 5870 and how much it can catch up to the 5970

    Because a 5850 is a GTX285 ( 1:1 ) w/c consumes lesser power and has DX11 :D

    Why are people trying to look for a card to jump a whole generation of performance? No single card matches the 3870x2 till the next gen, and no card matched the 4870x2/GTX 295 till the next gen. To expect NV to jump a whole generation in power is crazy, sorry to break a bubble. I would hope their new card is better than a 5870, because with a 6 month lead, I would assume that ATI has a card sitting for the release date of NV's card that will be better than the 5870 also.

    your post just made me think of something hilarious.

    Next gen Wii (Wii HD?) needs to use fermi for the GPU.

    why? Wii... 'Firm' ... cough.

    I agree, what does it matter?

    Its not even very big news (or at least, I dont think so) so having a full-blown press release would be pointless, not to mention the fact it would piss people off. People just want to see cards at this stage, I cant imagine people hanging onto every word during a press conference about a name...

    if its all announced at onces, they get limited media coverage that dies off.

    If they drag it out one little bit at a time, the name/product stays in media for longer, thus giving them greater public knowledge of the product, and making their investors shit their pants less over no new products in so long.

    Yeah, but when?

    The way Nvidia's going, inflation could be a factor here -- by the time fermi comes out the dollar could be worth a lot less. The GTX 480 might end up being $899 or something.

    I'm not believing in such a big difference in performance/price because of the naming. The second can't be too expensive though, so..

    $549 $449 (and $349 for GTX 460 if/when they make one $299 for GTS 450 and $249 GT 440).

    They really should set the fermi generation apart more instead of using the geforce name and just a higher number IMHO.

    Or maybe Nvidia has so many cards coming out all at once that they ran out of numbers in the 300's so they had to move to 400's, FLOOD THE MARKET!!!!! :rockout:

    The problem is that the die of those fermi's are huge, so the same space ATI can put 2 or even 4? chips nvidia can only use for one, and then there's less room of the round wafer for them because you can fit less large squares in a circle, and more chance that if there's a defect on it it ruined a bigger percentage of the output they produce, so basically they are forced to make the price high, and seeing the price of the HD5850 I don't expect any fermi to be cheaper than $370, unless they make a small core version later, but that will be less powerful and industry experts wonder if they even can in the first place, the thing is designed to be big.
