At least this is what I've heard. Not seen any concrete details yet
yep.. and thats jsut called 8800gts from here on out... so i guess the 8800gts 320mb's and 640mb's are something not gonna be recommended on this here forum anymore..

Nvidia could be trying to kick amd/ati while their down. That could be why the card cost is low, they want to keep momentum and gain market share.

Spending millions is not needed. They don't need a card with a extreme advantage and look at the front page of this very forum to see all the FREE advertisement they are getting from people.

Thats why I said "They don't need a card with a extreme advantage". Only fanboys and misinformed people will buy ati cards if this card is as fast and cheap as said and ati doesn't release a competitor.

I'll have to look up those cards again. Haven't seen anything on them in a while but I didn't think they were suppose to be much faster. Hopefully they are though. I like it when companies keep one upping each other.
