It could also be 2 more versions of the 7800. Perhaps, 7800GTX, 7800GT, 7800 Vanilla
I swear I saw the 7200, 7600.

Unless i HAD A DREAM AND MIXED IT UP WITH REAL LIFE AGAIN GRRRRRRRR

There is a discussion on this @ http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=54604 .

Some say that "The Power of 3" is nVidia's SLI, HDR and SM 3.0 promotion, and I think that seems a credible estimate.

i mean they have managed to outperform nvidia's cards the last 2 or 3 generations.
Only the 9*** series outperformed Nvidas counterparts. The rest prevailed. I believe its just the other cards, 7800, 7600, 7200.

I dont think nvidia understands how a countdown suppose to work. When it hit 0 something suppose to happen. Not the nothing we got. Well that was disappointing I guess we have to wait a little longer.

well, on the west coast, my counter says that there are still 14 hours and 14 minutes left at about 9:45PM. this is really getting out of hand IMO. nobody has the money for this. i don't understand why nvidia isn't just finishing the 7 series and making new and better drivers because the 77.72's suck.

I would have to agree on that one. 77.72s DO suck real bad.

this power of 3 thing could be Nvidia really kicking their marketing into high gear by pushing an approach for SLI+SM3.0+HDR. that way, they would really be kicking ATI in the teeth when their down on the ground with their R520. it would give the 7-series a real launch and would get alot of attention.

it could also be new things that a new driver could support. release 80!?!?!? that would be sweet!
