Nvidia will probably release some stopgap measure called the GTX-299 or something. Maybe 285's in tri SLI or something ridiculous

More bogus info, getting closer:

Nvidia and AMD readying for DirectX 11

Quote:
Nvidia is scheduled to complete engineering samples of its DirectX 11-based GT300 GPU at the end of September in order to start shipping in December at the earliest, the sources noted.

Meanwhile, AMD is prepared to launch its DirectX 11-based Radeon HD 5800 series (RV870) in late September and will start mass shipping in October. AMD will launch two models initially, the Radeon HD 5850 and 5870, the sources added.
