    NVIDIA's G92 mid-range graphics chip is provisionally set to launch on November 12th this year, while the launch date of the entry-level G98 still remains unknown, according to DigiTimes. NVIDIA plans to replace the GeForce 8800GTS series with the G92, while the G98 will replace entry-level products in the GeForce 8 series. The G92 will support PCI Express 2.0, HDMI, PureVideo Gen 3 and Display Port, while the chip will adopt a 65nm process. Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) will manufacture the chips. Despite the new chip designs, G92 and G98 can only be considered an update of the GeForce 8 series since they will not include any major changes.

    If price/performance is in a good relation, i'll maybe replace my 7900gto with a G92. if it has the same performance, but DX10 support, i won't upgrade...

    No major changes? So... it's a die-shrink?

    It will bring current prices down, so very good, no matter how low or high end they are =) I wouldn't mind a cheap 8800GTS.

    die shrink! well hopefully this dont turn out like 1900gt rev1 and rev2 :nutkick: they went backwards on that one lol.

    this gts may just overclock faster than a gtx/ultra. or maybe it will just oc a little more with added features from the 8800gts.... I thought theses were going to be dx10.1 capable too, maybe inq forgot about that :nutkick:.

    wtf? nvidia has already stated that the g92 is supposed to have three times the shading power of the 8800's. so where is the high end? I call bs inq.

    Essentially, the most notable difference is PCIE frequency, and how much power PCIE can supply vs PCIE2, however high-mid to highend cards will need external powr anyway.. pretty much making PCIE 2.0 useless. Especially if you can increas PCIE frequency on your mobo.

    More releases are always a good thing, even if I support ATI.
