More mid range cards from Nvidia coming.
Need more mid range graphics card selections ? It seems that Nvidia is going to make more based on the G92 gpu and named 9600 GSO. They are also embarking on 55 nanometer process technology, codenamed G92b.

Nvidia is planning to launch the GeForce 9600 GSO GPU in May to compete with AMD's Radeon HD 3830, according to sources at graphics card makers.
The GeForce 9600 GSO will based on the company's G92 GPU and will target the mid-range graphics card market. Card makers are expecting to pay Nvidia around US$50-55 for the chip.
In other news, Nvidia is planning to advance the process technology of the G92 GPUs to the 55nm node in July, in order to lower costs and increase core clocks. The 55nm GPUs will be codenamed G92b. The new GeForce 9900 series, which will launch in the second half this year is expected to continue the adoption of the G92 design.

I would like to see a 9800GTS priced at the same price as the 8800GT.

Will be nice to see another die shrink and the performance increase that gos with it-so looks like the general architectures unchanged then again-just smaller and faster.

Noooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I want faster cards not rehashes. Please ATI make a card that beats the 9800 GX2 by at least a good margin! Oh and I hope ATI gets their new cards out by June.
