Just so you know both links to get here from the article are dead, but I kinda feel sorry for all those ppl buying 1Gb 8500s and probably telling all their friends "I have a 1Gb graphics card in my computer". Seems to me that the 9500/9400 won't really be a big jump anyway, as things tend to advance much more slowly at the low-end as far as I can tell. Hope that nVidia do slacken off a bit with the whole 9-series, then ATi can get some good cards out in the gaps at a price-point which is competitive, like they did with the 3850/3870.

makes sense to me. If the old stuff is selling okay then wait until its not.. then release new cards.

And tbh, my reckoning is nvidia are indeed waiting for a powerful card from ATI until they delve into NEW technologies.

This problem says one thing to me

Nvidia should have spent more time developing the 9xxx series

Exactly.

If your going for this sort of card, you want desktop/office type performance with perhaps some media prospects.

You certainly wouldn`t upgrade from a 8400/8500 unless you were needing to spend for the sake of it.

Even still, these cards don`t exactly empty shelves quickly, and to be fair, when the next gen is on the horizon u can pick them up for £20-£30 easy.. or pay more for a 9 series low end card ?

Q4 08 would probably be a viable time for release.

Pah, it's just good marketing sense. Delay the release of the new cards to help disty's and partners get rid of old stock, been happening for years
