Personally, I would think that they would move the 7900GTX, 7900GT and 7950GX2 into EOL. They are not going to discontinue their bread-and-butter mainstream cards until at least two months after the release of the 8600-series.

Basically, even if they cancel production of the mainstream chips there are still more than enough chips in the AIB channel to last the next 4 months at least. That is exactly what happened with the 6600-series; even a few months after the 7600-series were released, 6600 cards were still in production because of the glut of chips in the channel.

There really isn't anything to worry about.....
