If it's true, you can't really complain about plans to drop prices on current products, especially when those products are still competing fairly well in the marketplace.

If they do manage to get stock out by november, it should be an interesting Christmas season with two fairly new GPU lines competing against each other. (Just so long as there's stock and we don't end up with the on-line "perfect storm" we had in Christmas 2006.... ;) ).

Threads merged, there is no point in making a thread about the topic that is already being discussed here.

I for one am looking forward to see what advancements ATI has been doing to one up nVidia.

To be fair, the only thing Nvidia put out that doesn't lick balls is the gtx 460.
I'll be holding off until the new 32/28nm gpus come rolling in. I'm willing to be those cards will be freaking awesome. I only plan on getting 1 card of each frabrication process. :D

huh I was about to say the ATI needs new cards because nvidia's line is pretty strong. ATI needs a better high end line-up because right now it isn't that good compared to the 460-480.
