I don't know whether to be happy or sad... happy that the Nvidia actually has competition or sad that the 55nm won't come out until after Sept and still be slower...
Worse news: If NVidia decides to implement DX10.1 into the GT200b, you'll have to wait longer.

Right now I only know of I game that has had DX10.1 and I don't think any later games that I will play will have DirectX10.1 and have a massive graphical difference.

DX10 and DX10.1 weren't released to have huge graphical differences. They were released to allow for new and better coding options to make games run smoother and more efficiently and to add new effects. D3 and SC2 will both be DX10.1

I don't get the abbreviations lol.

Coding efficiency then. Well I would prefer it if they all spent their energy on multi-threaded games so then the quad-core gamers (few and far) can say that they didn't waste their money. You might look at my sig rig and think thats me but I usually multi-task.

I'm just not interested in any of them. Just doesn't look appealing to me.

Does anyone have a date for the 4870x2 or the GT200b? I can't find one.
