Just a week before launch, manufacturers have again confirmed the G80's specifications for both the GTS and GTX models. Who here is eagerly awaiting the release...and ready to part with the folding stuff for one? Feel free to let us know below.

I just can not believe how massive these cards are... These things have to rival the old 3dfx dual GPU Voodoo's in length, my god.

@Harry: Some older lower end cards have gone over 600mhz core clock speeds out of the factory, it's just that they have very low-power cores which take a lot of clocks to make up for the inefficiency.

I'll probably wait until later to buy DX10, possibly up to a year.

I'm waiting after some revisions when power efficiency isn't thrown out the window.

Crysis, Microsoft Flight Simulator X, and I think Halo 2 are all native DX10.
