Default GTX 260/270/290 55nm - coming?

Has anybody heard anything about when the die shrink to 55nm for the GTX 260 is coming. I heard the GT206 was coming out around NOW (earlyish Sept) and the GT212 ws out next year but I haven't found out much?
(apologies if this info is posted somewhere but I couldn't find it)

There's no struggle to have. The technology is already there and known, it's a matter of implementing it and getting it done.

Default GTX 260 Core 216, or whatever it's called

Lots of news around the GTX 260 Core 216 today (or whatever it's called).
geez nVidia, would it have killed you to call it something different like the 262, or at least the 260+?
65nm, whaaaa...

Default a bit pricey

And check out the Prices at NCIX - Ouch!

$309.99 EVGA GTX 260 Core 216 576MHZ 896MB 1.99GHZ (AR) (just went down a bit more)
$349.99 BFG GeForce GTX 260 OC Maxcore 590MHZ 896MB 1.998GHZ
$369.99 BFG GeForce GTX 260 OCX Maxcore 665MHZ 896MB 1.99GHZ
$379.99 BFG GeForce GTX 260 OC2 Maxcore 630MHZ 896MB 2.12GHZ

I guess they'll be dropping pretty soon (hope).

Found this, SKYMTL (its not intended for "boasting anyones ego or providing additional "airtime"), seeing as how this is the Rumour Mill section of this Forum,,
TG Daily - Nvidia to rename its graphics chips
Jeez guys, they just came out with the new GTX2xx Series a few months ago, if things go the way they have for me in the past, seeing as how I just purchased my new 280, the new 55nm GPU's will likely surface next week..hahahaha.
I would specualte and say we'll likely see them prior to Christmas.
