Ok let me get this straight please correct me if im wrong. GT206, GT212, and GT216 will be faster than the current GTX260 and GTX280? Nvidia's nomenclature has got me really confused. :confused:
GTxxx references in the news article, are to the code-names of the GPUs, not the trade-names. eg: G200 is the code-name, [GeForce] GTX 280/260 is the trade-name, capiche?

I still think it's the best naming scheme they've come up with so far. They and ATI have gotten so much better with that, lately.

Is it still diwali?

I agree with the naming, other than that slight confusion I had earlier :eek: I like this naming scheme the more than any of their past ones. That goes for both ATi and Nvidia.

will nvidia really make a dx11 card, or will they make a dx10.1 card and tell ms that they gotta cut the dx11 specs to match nvidia hardware?

thats what they did with dx10.

Incase anybody missed that little epsode of clutch cargo, MS orignal specs for dx10 where whats now 10.1, ms backed off that because nVidia cryed and bitched about it and didnt want to support it, then after MS patches to 10.1 nvidia still dosnt support it with their next gen card(gt200) so we are looking at the high likelyhood they wont support a new dx revision when it comes out or wont fully support it.

meh, im still using my 8800gts 512, will wait and see, the 4870 is intresting, the x2 is VERY intresting, but duno.......we will see.......

Im with you Octavean! :D GT300GX2/4's ftw w00t!

The best part about reading all your comments, is that in summary I can now say to any HD4850 owners I have the pleasure of meeting (and arguing about graphics cards), that their two generation newer cards barely can outperform my good-ol 8800GTX :D thanks for that, cant wait to rub it in at someone! :nutkick:
