Yup, that sums up the GTX 480 pretty well. The "too noisy" and "too little performance advantage" are the number one reasons why I'm not bothering with it. My GTX 295 is a dual-GPU card and yet it runs cooler than this GTX 480 nuclear device.

Nice, I will be waiting for that.

Between currently valid info, outdated info, rumour and sheer speculation - it's not surprising that's it's easy to lose track of who's in bed with whom.

The last I 'heard' (ie read) was that there were tensions between GloFlo, yet AMD still hold about 30% marketshare in that company

I'm only surmising that they still have certain contractual obligations with TSMC for X amount of manufacturing left to do.

With a 295, you can easily afford to wait

I was content to wait it out a while longer with my 4890 crossfire setup until one of the cards karked it...

Speculation. It's said the 6000 series plan to be 28nm, but 28nm isn't planned to be ready until atleast Q1 2011 at the earliest.

Ah, so that's why he says that. No, the first wave will be 32nm in 2010, with 28nm variants coming in 2011.
