"FIXED!"

"Just joking, ATI has a good card this round but I am doing my step-up to the GTX260. I've had ATI in the past, my 9700Pro was amazing, and the x850pro was decent, quite decent, I got it too late in its life cycle but I remember being impressed with its performance when I first got it."

"I am going wait for some sort of further price drop on them though! I feel it's coming."

55nm will happen, 256-bit+ memory interface GDDR4/GDDR5 memory? not.
Nvidia chose to use a 512-bus specificly, creating new drivers for it etc. 256 - cuts the performance basically in half to a 9800GTX, you think it will be like 2900XT shrink to 3870? quite unliekly since that was 80nm to 55nm and this is 65nm to 55nm. (Basically shrunk the 512 in to 256)

Also nvidia chose to stick with their mass quanities of cheap GDDR3 memory. Anything more better, price goes up drastically with GDDR4 and increase and GDDR5 might increase the performance drastically if the gpu was design right. But not to mention that these cards are already expensive as it is.

so GT200? basically G92 on steroids. the healthier 55nm version might fix things up... might not we'll see, with videocards progressing this fast, nvidia might skip 55nm and go ahead to 45nm or 32nm since they got such a big R&D department. ATI's R800,R900 w/e they got coming will keep on pushing.

How would 1/2 bus=1/2 the performance? The 80nm to 55nm die shrink didn't cut the bus in half ATi decided to do that to cut costs and because it was unneeded. GDDR5 is only costs 10-20% more than very fast GDDR3. I think they will most likely move to 40nm and not 45 nm because IIRC TSMC will have or already have 40nm fabs ready. They already have 55nm coming in three months so it would be too late to skip it.

my mistake on the shrink part then, always looked at it like that.
But can the GT200 with the GDDR5 ram boost the card's speed from the GDDr3 to justify the cost? or does the gpu like more faster shaders/gpu clock instead.

like the HD 2000 series and 3000 series. I think Nvidia will keep these 65nm beasts for now. Shrink the mid range so 9800GTX, 8800GT and go ahead with 40nm or 45nm or w/e for their next high end.

Personally, I'm waiting for the 9800 GTX+ in July, at $229, it's a pretty nice card, I'm going to SLI them.

9800gtx+ in SLI is the best value NV offers imo.

"Meh! I find that old card designs seem faster at the start of the new cards life cycle. But as a few more games come out, the new card architecture shows its strength and jumps ahead."
