Yes. November of early December at the latest for the 8 series from Nvidia. ATI will be following in 2007.

Are you guys going to get the Nvidia 8800 or wait for the ATI R600?

im not doing either il just go sli like i allready get over 150 fps in fear maxed online and games like oblivion i get 40 to 50 outdoors in teh nature and 70 in tiowns and lik 90 inside houses and i tried call of juarez that maxed i get like 50 so im shure it wouldnt be worth spending like 600$ on a 8800gtx and the r600 will outperform it increadably from what ive read on it so far

another thing that i find pointless about the 8800 is that by the time dx10 games are released the 8 series cards will be junk just look at our first dx9 series cards by the time they actually made dx9 games the fx sucked and everyone was getting6800 so i say wait for the next gen of dx10 cards before u go out and spend alot of cash on one so id rather get the r600

After 2 ATI cards not working properly I would be more tempted to get a Nvidia 8 series. (Goes to fill in more application forms for a job lol.)

I expect that the ATI card will be more powerful though - they haven't released the specs yet.
