    Rumour is that nVidia will show something before the end of the year, but won't be in the shops until mid/late Q1'10.

    The Gt300 is a myth.

    The day after you bite the bullet and are fed up waiting and buy a 5870/5870x2 instead.

    Or about week after one of the dons starts a thread saying we have a delivery of something but can't tell you what.

    Paper Launch November 2009
    Hard Launch March 2010

    Is about as accurate as your going to get atm... and it could still be delayed if anything unexpected holds it up or earlier if better than projected progress is made.

    I think the mainstream cards are estimated for March 2010. I expect we will see a high end part before then.

    I thought it was highend by March with the mainstream being several months behind that date?

    That is far too late for Nvidia.

    Unless they purposely do a spin of cards with a cut down spec nVidia is going to take a massive hit from performance/mainstream cards as usually these would be the cards made on the high end process that are fully functional but don't make the grade for high end and need some SPs disabled, etc.

    Well let's be honest NV have already missed the two usual big Hardware selling events of this year Release of new O/S and the usual Back to School season. If they release anything this year I'll be amazed as they've usually crowed about new GPUs and shown of finished products month before retail but they still surprise

    Christ if it's Q1 2010 then you might even see ATI do a paper launch of 5890 around the same time :D

    What makes me think it is a way off is I havent seen a whiff of fermi news around since the fake card debacle and that is unusual for a card that would be just around the corner

    It has been pretty quiet. I'm sure they're trying to find a way to mount a surprise comeback but with yields reportedly so low I think it's more likely they'll mount an offensive based upon PhysX, 3D Vision and CUDA. Either way ATi has scored a huge victory by releasing before Win7 and by scoring a deal with Dell - if they get their 5870x2 cards out soon then it's pretty much a walk in the park for them, as they'll have enough time to work on the 5890 to coincide with Fermi.

    Still, nVidia isn't one to take things lying down. I'm sure we'll see something interesting from them.

    depends. As we know nothing about price or perfromance how can we tell? If your current card is struggling in games you are currently playing, then a 5850 would be a nice, non-expensive upgrade to DX11. If it's not then wait and see.
