    R700 -> GTX200
    FV770 -> G92/G92b

    Anyway HD 4870 looks to close from GTX260. Good competition here.

    Is Nvidia gonna make a 55nm 128SP GPU based on G200 core and technology? I'd like a card with the more powerful SP units and geometry shading performance with the low idle power consumption.

    Is he really talking about the GT200b? Why not the R700?

    Any idea how soon? Same week as RV770? Will it be a "silent" launch, replacing G92 without any fuss?

    In the mobile space ? Definitively silent, and relatively quickly.
    But the desktop market is another story. It could go either way, depends mostly on marketing considerations (as i don't think it will be on that market for long like the 65nm G92 did before it) and also on... RV770 price structure and evolution, of course.
    Competition is a beautiful thing. :grin:

    G92b will likely last at least as long as G92, possibly longer.

    Why ? Did they "fail" recently ?
    Can't you also do SLI with two or three GTX 280's as well ? :wink:

    Could you qualify their failure?

    Add the price for a nuclear generator station, as well (236W@full x 2 or 3). :wink:

    Well I'm just throwing this out there (doesn't mean I agree with it), some have considered the 8800 Ultra a failure/disappointment.

    Only at ultra high resolutions and/or very high levels of AA and/or with current and up-and-coming DX10 games will the GTX 280 really start to stretch it's legs against 9800 GTX.

    So if you just do a simple average at all of those different resolutions, it really doesn't give a good sense of how much faster GTX 280 really is when compared to 9800 GTX with both pushed to their limits.

    The GTX 280 is just way way faster at very high resolutions with high levels of AA, most of the time 2x or greater performance improvement. And considering that it has relatively low idle power consumption given it's very high performance, it's a big success in my opinion.

    Oh, and the two "best" results in favor of GTX 280 should not be completely disregarded. Those are no fluke, this card has much more horsepower than 9800 GTX when it comes to powering through high resolutions with high levels of AA.
