Why would they make new lower end DX11 cards when they can't even produce enough of the current DX11 ones?

3. See 2.
4. Bulldozer shows promise to combine the flexibility of the x86 instructions set with the raw processing power of the average GPU. Hypothetical question: Would a i9 at 6.0Ghz have higher processing power than a 4 Core Propus that intercepts x86 commands and dynamically offloads math processing to the onchip 480 Stream Processors? I am leaning towards the answer of "No.". I imagine Intel would do something similar with a Clarksdale variant and Larribee.

TL;DR: The math co-processor of the i386 days is back with vengeance.
Ok, I kind of understand what you're trying to say. Larrabee and Fusion is the future. However, dedicated GPU's will never stop being produced. I don't think you won't see 1600+ stream processors on a CPU + GPU for a few years. People still want the power of 1600+ stream processors for gaming.

Agreed, but all of what I am saying is wearing on nVidia's revenue. Less revenue -> less R&D -> less impressive products-> It's Chicken Noodle day at the soup kitchen.

Edit: It seems that you put my quote in your sig.

NV is getting pummeled in terms of sales and competition by ATI.

That's what I am waiting for, I will probably upgrade as soon as I can get a 5k series card in a lappy.

Don't say silly things and then say "you can quote me on that"

someone might.

For the record I have no complaints about my GTX285 nor my 8800GT before that. ATI is offering Eyefinity and for me personally, that's a "killer app" kinda feature even when it comes to just desktop use.

I'm not sure what makes it a "double RV700" but I do know those other features it has that RV700 didn't have count for something. Otherwise I wouldn't be interested in replacing my 285 with one.

There's no need to be the un-paid shill that keeps the company hate/love balance in check. They do that just fine by alternately succeeding and failing over time.
