All I can say is that I hope not. G80 has been around for two years, in several variants and sizes, I think it is time we move on to something more modern.

If that is true, we can only hope that they push the memory interface to 512bit and push the memory size to 1gb, so that we can enjoy playing the newest games at highest settings. Maybe ati pushes them, with their upcoming release, to the limit and they haven't got enough time for a new architecture, if they want to compete now. So they just upgrade their existing one. We will see when the new gpu’s come out.

True. But, that doesn't mean that we shouldn't be getting new tech. IMO, no matter how good tech is, two years on, we should be seeing something new.

But its the money, to develope a whole new architechture would cost millions and if the old one is still top dog why bother with a new one?
