Default 8900 question

Does anyone know exactly when the 8900s are going to come out, how much they are going to be, and how much better they are going to be over an 8800GTS 640? The reason I ask is because I was wondering if I can still use the step up program in time for them to come out, and how much they are going to be. I can get a 30 rebate for my GPU but if I can't do the step-up ting. See where I am going. Any help would be nice. Thanks.

The 9800s are coming out Q4 2007, so I doubt we'll be seeing any 8900s.

I don't know anything about 8900 series. Nividia might skip 8900series and release G92, 9800 series, instead.

G92 will come out on Q4 2007 and nvidia claims that it is going to be faster than two 8800Ultra

It is slated to come out in the last quarter of this year, before the holidays. I've been hearing around November-December. It's going to be the most powerful graphic card, with a teraflop of computing performance. The 8800s can only give like 300-500 gigaflops of performance. Not 100% sure on that. And I'm guessing they're going to be really really expensive. But this will drive prices down for the 8800 series to make them more affordable.

I think they're skipping the 89xx series, and going straight to the 98xx series.
