great I guess you could buy the X800pro on the 4th, not another month of wait after. I think the X800XT probably will beat the 6800Ultra, but I'm sure Nvidia will tune up the clock frequency of 6800Ultra on their 512mb DDR3 version to compete with the X800XT, since ATI's using 512mb DDR3. And I'm sure Nvidia will focus on PS3 as part of their marketing strategy.

Yeah but you never know maybe the 800pro will beat the 6800ultra.

Now that would be impressive to say the least.


If I glanced at a spilt box of tooth picks on the floor, could I tell you how many are in the pile. Not a chance, But then again I don't have to buy my underware at Kmart.

but i dont understand something. the topic of the article claims the anouncement date is may 4th but inside the article its may 5th:

"The date that is apparently being suggested is the 5th of May, and it could be that ATI will launch this chip during the SBS event."

so what is the actual date? same was with nvidia. it was supposed to be april 13th but ended april 14th.

Indeed it is confusing, but take a look at the whole thing.

<i>"The date that is apparently being suggested is the 5th of May, and it could be that ATI will launch this chip during the SBS event...

...This means that you should be able to buy one on the 4th of May but let's wait and see if ATI can deliver on that day."</i>

sounds a bit weird dont you think? if the NDA lifts at the 5th of may then how is it possible you can grab that card at the 4th of may?

same thing happened with GF6800U with the dates. all sites said the NDA lifts at the 13th of april but it was actually the 14th.
