all the rumors point to mid-range cards from Intel. AMD has already made Nvidia drop prices there. but it won't stop the stupid $1000++ high end card prices from nvidia. with no one really competing against them there, they can still keep them super inflated in price.
but since i don't ever buy high end that's for others to worry about.
a 3rd option in the $2-300 range which is where i tend to buy is always welcome. so bring on more competition there.
