By "6-series" I was thinking along the same lines; regardless, I'm unsure how they're going to name the 5-series refresh, so it may very well be 6-series, name-wise. By "architecture refresh" I read something comparable to a driver update (a-la NV's 260.63) in hardware form. I'm still screwed because it's always about latest and greatest...

I think I'm gonna bite the bullet on a 480. As for the 28nm spec further down the road, Q2 2011 could mean up to June/July. Knowing how NV did business in regards to Fermi, I'm expecting the worst-case scenario, perhaps even Q3...
