Default G90 any rumors?

Don't know if it should be placed here but are there any actual news on G90 and also when will they come out? Some untrustworthy forums say november but that soon?

Found this on the net.

Featuring the "second Generation" of the NVIDIA unified shader architecture, G90 (or G92) will be capable of nearly 1 trillion floating point calculations per second- over 2x faster than the Geforce 8800 Ultra, and may support DirectX 10.1 and OpenGL 3.0. GeForce 9 is slated to launch during Q4 2007.

"G92" GeForce 9800 GTX specs.

- 65nm process technology at TSMC.
- Over one billion transistors.
- Second Generation Unified Shader Architecture.
- Double precsion support (FP64).
- GPGPU native.
- Over one TeraFLOPS of shader processing power.
- MADD+ADD configuration for the shader untis (2+1 FLOPS=3 FLOPS per ALU)
- Fully Scalar design.
- 512-bit memory interface.
- 1024MB GDDR4 graphics memory.
- DirectX 10.1 support.
- OpenGL 3.0 Support.
- eDRAM die for "FREE 4xAA".
- built in Audio Chip.
- built in tesselation unit (in the graphics core"
- Improved AA and AF quality levels

65nm process will allow for better yields and better power consumption. power consumption will be lower than that of a GeForce 8800 GTX.

GeForce 9800 GTX will be over two times faster than a GeForce 8800 Ultra in real world games and applcations.

Release date : November 2007. There will be TWO products at launch: The flagship GeForce 9800 GTX and the second fastest GeForce 9800 GTS.

price for the GeForce 9800 GTX will be 549-649 USD.

price for the GeForce 9800 GTS will be 399-449 USD.

I don't know if I can trust this. It might be somewhat true though.
