May sounds realistic, as Nvidia will try to make the most out of the demand for 8800gt's right now.

I don't think they'd want to wait too long or it'll end up killing the sales on the 9 series. Its bad enough they're going to be expensive but not everyones going to want to upgrade from a card they bought 4 or 5 months prior.

some will of course lol. but a lot wont

I think we should expect them in February...

See, the way I see things, the G92 GT and GTS should really in fact be the mid-range 9 Series. First, because of the new G92 core, PCI-E 2.0 support and DX10.1. I think those are enough extra features to warrant a jump to a new series. The fact that they stuck these cards into the 8 Series is rather confusing. Imagine the average customer having to chose between a 512MB GTS and a 640MB GTS... or an 8800GT vs an 8800GTX... it's quite confusing because the names aren't very indicative of the true performance. The pricing does also not represent the performance as well in a proportional fashion.

From my point of view, the 9 Series has already launched with an array of mid-range cards (8800GT and 8800GTS G92), now we need the flagships to come in, which as usual, will cost a heck of a lot more money, but it will clean up that awkward gap in price/performance that we currently see with the G92s and the GTX/Ultra.

This is probably why Nvidia wants to release the 9 Series in February. We might see the mid-range solutions later on, probably in March or April.

Does this mean the price won't go down so much on the 8800 gt's but rather a significant price decrease on the GTX and Ultras?
