Ati are always late, the G80 will be released before R600

Doesn't matter anymore like it did back in the 6800GT vs. X800 series days. Nowdays you can't go wrong either way. Its nice to see ATI has made a comeback after being so pitful the past 2 years.

Very true. This X1900XT is the shiz I've only had it for 4 days, but I'm in love with it already.

They got the X1900XT/X at the end of January, almost 6 weeks ahead of nvidia. You have no foundation to tell when the G80 or the R600 is going to be released.

Don't be an ATi fanboy, G80 is June/July while R600 is Q4. Those are establised release dates.

ATi ARE always late to the new generation. Happened with Radeon 9/GeForce FX, happened with Radeon X800/GeForce 6, happened with Radeon X1000/GeForce 7, and its going to happen again with R600/G80.

I personally think the 1900XT/X is to revenge the 7800 GTX 256/512, not to compete the yet to be released NVIDIA cards
