Agreed. And the naming team.

How many of us are waiting for these things to come out just to drive the prices of the ATI cards down?

I am not totally surprised that it was not announced. I am surprised that its the end of March now before it will be.

I think nVidia's marketing guys have misread the mood of their fan base. Seriously, if I were a gamer and frequent upgrader, I would go with ATI right now and wait until next year/Xmas to go nVidia. Us folders will just have to wait.

The only reason I haven't sold my GTX 285's and picked up the ATI's is because I fold. And I'm still tempted.

I've always been a Nvidia fan even though I bought a 5870 at launch but I'm disgusted with Nvidia.
I'll take shitty drivers over arrogance's and stupidity any day. em, I'll get another 5870 and call it good

I think a lot of people were willing to wait until January or so for nVidia to get the shit straightened out, but I have to wonder how these delays will impact Fermi especially when they have given ATi plenty of time to prep a refresh. These cards better be beastly.

The only good thing I see from this announcement is the raffle for the Nvidia forum moderator whom passed away last year.

The rest is crap.

Yah it's pretty darn ridiculous. I'm waiting to get a 2nd HD 5850, I got the first one when they were about $260, now they're like $310? WTF? Oh and btw, does anyone have any idea how low the ATI's will drop to once these get released?
