I've read somewhere, that the 7800 GTX was released to make ATI think this was the bar to beat. and that when the R520 gets released, Nvidia will come out with a better card and pull the carpet from under ATI
not sure if it's true, but that's what I read

Even if that is true, beedubya posted something about an R580 coming out a little bit after the R520. nvidia will have 2 contend with that

Without SM3, future games WILL NOT run in DX9 mode, and will default to DX8.1 or DX8, so basically, it will suck.
SM3 is a DirectX 9c instruction, many people seem to just ignore the fact that DirectX9 has earlier support (aka DX9b) which is not dependent on newer shading instructions.
