Please. That moron said that exact same thing about the G80. We know how much of a failure that was...

You throw enough crap you bound to hit something.

Well the new GTX card is no secret. It's slated for this fall. A big reason why I'm holding out even with the price cut. Besides the Ultra is still a uber card that maxes it all atm.

nVidia has gone down hill lately. The 780i chipset still has major issues with the reference design in the cooling department on the north bridge that's eating ram for dinner. Though EVGA has a new cooler coming out, well 2 actually.

As for the 280 I've read nothing but great things about the cards performance, on the other hand almost every review squashes it due to the failure rate and the cooler design not being enough as it overheats like crazy.

I just wished they made em like they did the G80 Ultra and GTX which are like bricks you just can't hurt the things and they just keep going and going.

Everytime Nvidia comes out with a chipset everyone goes on and on about how this one is better than the last and how it will finally compete with Intel. Every time they are wrong.

Intel chipsets should be used with Intel CPU's.

Nvidia's GPU department isn't in as bad a shape as everyone claims. The GTX280 is still fast and with the price drop to $499 isn't as bad of a deal as $650. Yes on a price to performance ratio the 4870 is better. But the 4870 will never come with a lifetime warranty than the GTX280, and the GTX280 is still faster. The 4870 uses more power too.

You won't see me buying either one of these new toys (GTX280 GTX260, 4870, or 4870X2), but for the high end they are all good.

I suspect a 55nm GT200b will compete with the RV770. Hopefully they will drop the 512 bit bus and go with 1GB GDDR5 as well.

I still dont think a 55nm GTX 280 will be able to compete with a 4870x2, especially with the latest interconnect, as well as(lately) two gigs of memory, and(what I read a long time ago) a shared memory controller between the two GPU's.

2. Thats a given, we wont use amd cpus on Intel chipsets
3. The price drop came from crazy to feasible, they'll have to price drop yet again to when the R700 comes out. And how does lifetime warrany have to do with anything? Visiontek offers a lifetime warranty now btw and 4870 certainly does not use more power than GTX 280. If your thinking of the 4870x2 they yes there's a chance maybe it would reach a TDP 225+.
