Windows 7: When are Nvidia 300 series card coming?

It's going to get interesting again. Like Skunksmash. I've stayed away from ATI just because I have never liked their drivers. Though since AMD they seem to be getting a better handle on it. Hopefully Nvidia will release some sample cards to testers and we can get a look see soon.

Ahh, They are getting tired of getting their butts licked by Intel's CPUs so they are going to concentrate on GPUs huh?

That's cool, whatever works. Competition is great!

lol... ATI have had some compatibility issues in the past. , its a lot better now, but the 4000 release was a fiasco.

compatibility issues with what--gaming, everyday use, rendering videos? i'm really curious.

i have had radeon 9250, x1300, hd 2600xt, hd 3870, and currently two 4870s--i'm past forty so my mind is not what it used to be in my 20s, but as i recall with each of the cards i've owned, i've never experienced any problems with compatibility or anything. so i always wonder what problems people have had that has caused them to swear off ati. (oh, and i'm not trying to come off as ATI FANBOY #1 -- i'm just curious to hear of these problems and issues)

(lastly, i'm not asking for someone to list the whole history of their bad experiences with ati drivers, i just want to know some examples. 'compatibility issues' is to vague for me to understand )

well....i dont know what else there is to say, there was a plethora of problems with the 4 series & drivers..

ppl were having to use old drivers when coming home with their new cards, they also had H/W level problems with non detections or an intermittent response, the overheats they were having were also pretty epic....

but as i say, its a lot better now (i.e. the horror stories have stopped)

i appreciate your reply.

i'm never the 'earliest adopter,' so i guess whenever i got my 'new' cards, whatever problems existed had already been ironed out. unless one or both of my cards break down catastrophically, my crossfire setup will serve me well LATE into 2010

It's why I've stayed away from ATI too. The price is so low because it's essentially a beta product they're releasing!

again, no specifics... what is incompatibility--could be anything! the word by itself doesn't mean anything. as far as the rest of your statement, i really don't understand what that means
