The Green Team?

Something i do find interesting is how loyal people are to any particular company,
History lesson 101: Microsoft originally were ready to release DX10, they had to 'retract' it and remove some components as NVidia couldn't produce cards which would conform, the 'cut-down' version of DX10 was released and they followed this with DX10.1 (which included the full DX10 instruction set) which only ATi cards could run (at the time) the 'Big-Green' have only just released cards to conply with the DX10.1 format ....will there new 300 series cards be fast...almost certainly.....will they have a complete feature set...who knows.....ATi are there already and have a few months headstart so no doubt NVidia will regain the crown.......but most of us, look at the 'bangs-per-buck' and this in mind ATi should do well. IMO

oh and BTW Happy Xmas to all (red and Green!! )

Prices are way to high Ill wait a while till they go down and see what nv comes up with

The price to produce a Fermi chip is way more higher then an Cyprus or Hemlock-chip. Ati is way more 'bang for the buck' and the way Nvidia is having Yield-problems, it aint going cheap at all. Like 10% of all yields is able to be produced for graphics-purposals, even tho the core is stripped to 448 ones instead of 512 and almost withdraws up to 300 watts, its going to be a very long ride before the fermi would be called a succes...

All that there is are specs, rumors, and an ignorant nvidia by saying fermi would be the blast.

I think a lot of people that voted for "Waiting on Nvidia" had changed their mind , and some already got their HD 5xxx as we speak , a pity you can't re-vote , reset your previous vote and vote for another.
