Great news, but I don't think I'll be selling out my 8800GTS 512 in the near future anyway. Anyway, weren't the R770-based ATI-cards sporting 5th gen GDDR? If so, why are nVidia still going for 3rd gen?

Think we`re going to increasing find that people will be very indifferent about nVidia releases under their existing format.

Like if u stand right infront of some1 saying "look what we got" - and they`re looking over ur shoulder muttering "yeah yeah very nice, what`s that behind you, is it something exciting ?"

If the 9900GTX doesn`t prove to be an extremely good card, something that an owner of any existing card owner can feel they need to buy - ala when 8800GTX came out, it`ll continue to be the same.

Well the 9800GTX not blowing our minds was expected as it was just the same chip with go faster stripes but it was still an improvement.. This is all new so hopefully we should see some impressive gains.. Also even with the very limited details we have, the 512 bit bandwidth will help straight away..

They must know they can't just go and release another whole range of cards that only marginally beat out their last set which will only be a matter of months old by that point.. These must have more power!
