My System Specs

Default Nvidia's DirectX 10, G83 starts at $69

Vista DirectX 10 for peanuts

NVIDIA plans to bring more DirectX 10 parts to market.
After the G86 hits the mainstream there will be a place for an entry level card. We also call this the low end market and these cakes sell the best. This chip is scheduled for a summer introduction. It gets the Geforce 8300 brand and it is again 80 nanometre chip. The faster one is called Geforce 8300 GT. It has 32 stream processors - one quarter of the Geforce 8800 GTX. It works at 500MHz and the memory works at 1200MHz. The card uses 128 Bit Mbit memory controller. There will be two configurations one supporting 256MB while the second supports 128MB of memory.

$69? Not bad at all... but I'd still hate to suffer with it's performance unless it was for my moms rig, hehe.

I wonder if it will be at a profit loss to move people to directX 10 and prevent ATI from ever being able to compete in that arena at the entry level- I have a feeling we might see intel and nvidia using their deep pockets to do just that type of maneuver in the coming months to put a real squeeze on the ATI/AMD consortium, which will be much to the benefit of the consumer in the short term, but to our great detrement in the longer term.
