When the rumor mill started grinding on about the "RV790," a future high-end AMD graphics processor, one might have assumed that chip would be based on 40nm process technology.

They have an engineering sample of a 40 nm card out already!

Windows 7 beta 64 bit build 7000

It seems that both AMD and nVidia are both just re-releasing existing technology. nVidia, the worst, is just rebranding, ATI is, essentially, resetting clocks.
