It is, it was only for the first 100 customers, and as far as I could tell, those went in......really, really fast. Any update on a price drop in the 8800gtx/s?? Will they be dropping on July 22nd too?

Does this mean nVidia is preparing for a new release already? Or did they finally realize that Ultra's cost waaay too much.
