Default Word about the 8800 Ultra coming May 15th.

Geforce 8800Ultra confirmed: Expect Reviews on May 1st and aavailablity May 15th - VR-Zone IT & Lifestyle Forum!

Can't wait to see some specs... But a rumor of 999$ on the price tag wont be to nice.

However the 8800 GTX and lower model's should go down in price.

Great now all they have to do is release drivers that are as good as their cards and I'll be set.. I wonder how it will stack up to the R600 and the 8900's?

That's good news. 8800GTX's should go down in price, anyone wish to speculate how much they will drop?

You cannot expect a card that is 560 bucks right now to drop to like 140...thats not going to happen

Im definately getting two 8800GTS for SLI this summer, because i know they will drop to around 150-200$ each. And the 8800GTX should drop to around 300-400$.
