I'm not reading 6 series release out of this information. Think more along the lines of a 5 series refresh with slightly higher clocks. (although it's all guesswork at this point).

Congrats to ATI. Nothing new (besides a possible 512 shader fermi) will be coming from nVidia until 2H 2011 when they make the 28nm conversion.
That's some pretty strong predictions.... I think I'll hold off until we see some real numbers and/or stock before declaring the green team back behind the 8 ball. :)
