Im not sure about you guys in the USA but I got a call from one of the guys at scan.co.uk and he was saying they have some there they're now testing and they will be getting their sale stock in the next week, to go on sale on the 14th-15th of april if all goes smoothly. He said the cards are working very well on their test machines. Even if there only 50% faster than a ATI card im still going to upgrade to one. Might as well jump on the 3D band wagon while its still new and fresh lol

I'm a fan of nVidia myself... Even if the new cards offers a single 5% better than the high-end AMD ATi card, I'll be happy. Also, those cards are in the cheapest they ever sold on release date. Remember the 8800 GTX at launch... man, those were expensive : like 700$ !!

When I'll build my new PC, I'll be getting a GTX470 even if people say to go to ATI, I don't care, I'm a loyal fan and I'll be respecting nVidia.

On a bright note, I think Fermi is a good starting base for new series that will, hopefully, doing better.

Been watching reading the live commentary from PAX on the launch. It's just finished now, 2 lucky winners won a GTX480. Reviews of the card will be around anytime in 5 minutes and it seems to be true that there will be a general availability of the cards in 2 weeks.

So, I read Clubic.com/s test on nVidia's new GPU and they dubbed it the "fastest mono GPU" card. Well, I'm happy with the result.

Just reading through Hexus's review that I posted in the thread I made, and I'm happy with the results I've seen so far as well.
