It looks like the GT200 or D10U card will sell for US$499 and it will be the perfect replacement for the Geforce 9800GTX. We are not sure about the name. Many people have suggested Geforce 9900GTX and GT brands, but we are not sure if these will really be the final names.

The cards based on the GT200 will sell for $499 and the cards are sampled and work well. Nvidia plans to show the cards to journalists in the last week of May and it's highly likely to see the launch in June, with retail availability.

It will be fun to see if the GT200 will end up faster than the GX2 and if this single big chip can actually beat a dual chip card. We have a feeling it should.


Picture below is what is said to be the nex card

Hopefully i get the new cards so i can realli push some of the future highend games. i just need a sweet Lcd monitor now to test.
At this point I would ask you to post who you review / work for since those are some pretty tall claims you are making.

No worries about that. One way or another, there will be a review of any new Nvidia products here on HWC come launch day.
