Quick to judge ? what is it now 5 ? 6 ? months late and counting ? Sorry but until a person can see something tangible and marketable it is a failure.

I have a hard time believing that something so troublesome to bring to market will outperform expectations, but we'll see............................................... eventually.

Who says they are 5 to 6 months late? Nvidia has never said when they are going to release a card till now. Like I was explaining in an another article it wouldn't have mattered much if nvidia released the card in November because there would have been even more shortages and probably still be waiting for stocks to be steadily in stores. So nvidia hasn't had much to loose. Also the PC gaming market doesn't have a strong need to upgrade right now because we already have cheap GPUs that can play all games at resonable settings. Nvidia will only loose if there card is either not at all that good(Sky's preview says otherwise) or it isn't priced right. I believe nvidia will price it right even if it means very low profit as ATI's cards are fairly over priced right now.

If anything it would be wise to wait for the price war that is going to happen and not like you can't wait because we already can play every game.

About bloody time. You gotta wonder how long it will be before there is a decent supply, though.

Can't wait for decent supply... so I can buy a 5830 or 5850... I would not be surprised if there was nearly no 400 series card available before mid/late summer.

Buh? My Server has a mind of its own and is posting by itself now? Cool! Welcome to the forums!

I went back to the red camp a long while ago. NVidia is just taking too damn long.
