actually everything is more expensive tehre, so a 200 usd part here would be 200 euro there...more or less :)

Things are looking good for AMD at the moment. I'm really waiting for the 69XX cards, but the 68XX cards should give a good idea of what type of performance to expect. It looks like the die size for the 69XX cards will be around the same size as the 512 shader Fermi...it should be a beast.

The title of this thread is a bit misleading...the parts aren't late, and the 40nm process isn't the "same old" process, as it's matured, and it is still the best process available.

Really, this is bad news for us. What was suppose to be the 67xx series has now been renamed to 68xx, replacing what? I don't know for sure but maybe they decided to skip improving on the 40nm chip and just move on to 28 as the new 7xxx series. Lots of good work done by AMD and they were supposed to be half done, they look back and see no competition behind their tale, so they decide to sit on their asses and watch.

This is clearly Nvidia's fault for not stepping up the game, more than it's AMD's.

actually, in wake of ati's upcoming beaters, nv is rumouring some gtx 5 series whooping, perhaps trying to get some attention while the red team..well green because amd is green but anyway..

so with those specs it looks like a monster, but lets see it first, same with amd's products :)

the tdp comment is interesting. close as in 400 watts or as in 300? :)

The 67XX series has been renamed to the 68XX series, but we're getting a brand new 69XX series. No real difference...AMD is just adding more cards to their linup as they'll now have 67XX, 68XX, and 69XX cards. The consumer will be the winner here.

nVidia can go ahead and talk about a possible GTX 5XX all they want. With all the broken promises that turned out to be Fermi, they should just keep their mouths shut until they can do a hard launch.

It's not the power of the GPU that upset me. It's the branding of it as a 68xx series! It was supposed to be priced similarly as last year's 57xx. Now that it is a 68xx, they just slapped an extra 80$ on it without doing any extra work on it.
