Re: what happened to 8900 series

The 9800 was a die shrink and PRICE shrink. I picked up both of my 9800GTX's for less than a single 8800GTX card at launch, or even 6 months ago. I'm glad nvidia is bringing high performance cards to the masses, maybe if pc's get far enough of the software, we will actually get some good games that arent just craptacular console ports.
And from the online rumor mill, the "9900" cards will now be called Geforce GTX 260 and 280. And these things are going to go back to the 600 dollar brute force heat your entire house up while spinning the electric meter beasts that the 8800GTX was.
sounds like my kinda graphics card
and why don't you throw in a 3rd 9800gtx there veedub?
