If you have any insider information/speculation as to when the nVidia 9000 series (ie: 9800, etc.) is going to be released, vote up!

I wouldn't expect anything before March.

all i know is people are getting confused by the fact their creating refreshes with the same damn name *8800GTS G92Version...

I was at a site earlier today that suggested they are going to change the GTS naming schema with the new card. It would be pretty stupid of them not to.

It won't be updated until ati/amd has something faster, or people stop buying 8800 gtx's. Which could be a while. Nvidia's plan is to sell everyone triple sli motherboards and 3 8800s.

Given how well the GT performs i am expecting the GTS version to be as good at least as a GTX anyway and i dont see any sence in producing more than one card for a price/performance segment.surley the 8800GT and GTS will be all they need ?
This in my opinion will then mean they can release the next Gen when market conditions are right but given how close the 3870 is compared to the differance between the old 8800 series and the 2900 it seems that ATI/AMD are closing the gap and i would expect Nvidia to get it out there Quite quickly and reclaim a clear lead at the top end.

Modular GPUs is my prediction. in that case it will just be a matter of what your MOBO can do and the amount of GPUs they can stick on one board.

Your talking about Fusion/Nehalem and these systems while in the longrun have the potential to do away with the dedicated GPU in the future, They wont have the raw processing power to compete with a dedicated card just yet.

*Looks at 9800GTS in rig*

Definitely Q2 next year.

NV isn't makin much money on the old 90nm tech. So a move to newer technologies is needed. Right now they are giving us the 65nm 8800GT and soon GTS cards. Once most everyone has a 8800GT or GTS, NV will have no choice but to make a new card to get new sales.... And that shouldn't take too long lol.
My vote is that we'll see something by next summer, probably mayish... In the meantime, let's hope those 2x 65nm GTS card in Feb, rocks our socks (or some lame saying like that)!

Scotty--"She's giving all she's got captin, any more and she'll blow!"

Captain Jerk--"I DON'T CARE! OVERCLOCK THAT WARP DRIVE NOW!!!"

!!The ENTERPRISE 9800GTX then voids it's warranty, and bursts into flames! =D

They should do a ATI 9800 vs. Nvidia 9800 benchmark
November 29, 2007 12:22:18 PM

Ok, I voted 2Q of 2008, cause I'm feeling optimistic.

Nvidia seems to be playing a lot of naming games right now, trying to fool people into buying a new card that's either a rebranded old card or maybe the person thinks he's buying a new card, but he in fact is buying an old cards. I mean, which 8800 GTS 640 card will you get if you order one? Do you get the original one, the KO, the SSC, the one that's rumoured to be coming out in December, something else entirely? Does it have 96, 112, or 128 stream processors? This is getting rediculous.

Please wake me up when Nvidia actually does produce a new card that that uses better tech and also beats the 8800 GTX. My old GTX is getting tired of waiting for a something really new.
November 29, 2007 12:22:24 PM

The new GTS shows promise. I'll probably pick one of those up Jan/Feb, and might be able to squeak in a 9800 under step up.

As I'm sure most of you are aware, the 8800 GTS benchies are out. In a nutshell, with a moderate overclock it will outpace the 8800 Ultra. However, with cutting edge games like Crysis, there is still room for a $400-500 card that can blows the doors off DX10 (even the new GTS doesn't impress me when faced with the latest titles). Given that the g92 is pretty much at the ceiling with the GTS, I can only speculate a top end is in the works.

Considering fiscal crapola, I'm thinking either January (unlikely), April (decent chance), or June (most probably).

I think that it will be H2 next year TBH, they will probably bring out another 8800GTX or ultra before they come out with a 9xxx card.

Actually their tricking people into buying a new card when they think its an old one. They see a 8800GTS and say "oh the price had dropped on it" then they go and buy it.

there's another thread with a link saying the high end 9 series's coming out feb08
November 30, 2007 1:49:08 PM

but these will be the high end cards right? not the high perf/price ratio cards, which might only be out in june.
November 30, 2007 1:54:10 PM

Hey, maybe the new 9 series will drop the price on the 8800GTX, so then I can get one, lol. I agree it probly will be sometime in Q2 next year before it hits shelves.
November 30, 2007 2:20:21 PM

not just hit the shelves, hit the shelves at affordable prices :) 
November 30, 2007 4:33:00 PM

I hoping that Feb. 08 is accurate. I'd be more than willing to flop down the Benjamins for a top of the range 9800.
November 30, 2007 4:34:41 PM

Lack of true competition is likely causing a slow down in GPU advancment. Aslong as Nvidia hold the title, they won't see a need to advance.

Same goes with Intel vs AMD. Until AMD start really threatening Intel, we're not going to see any big advances.
November 30, 2007 4:37:42 PM

That's not necessarily accurate. In order for them to make money, they need to keep releasing new chip generations. Otherwise, everyone will be content keeping what they have.

Partly true, but only for those people who have the top cpu/motherboard at the moment. The majority of people actually have cpus/motherboards that are far from the top, so they could save up money and buy better chips even if nothing new was released for the next year or two. In a way that would be a relief, because the present chips, motherboards, and ram could get time for top developement without being replaced before their potential was fully realized.
November 30, 2007 6:14:44 PM

The way I see it, as long as hardware intensive games continue to be released, there will be a demand for better graphics cards. As as long as there is a demand, nVidia and others will work their butts off to fill it.
November 30, 2007 7:06:59 PM

Other than a few titles, the current graphics cards are just right. The 9800 series is just to run Crysis at Very High settings...

Or so we hope.

I have a prediction that all future cards will include a piece of hardware called the Crysis Magic Rendering and Piece-Thingy Faster-Doer-Speeder-Upper (CmRAPTS)

feb ....maybe....cash is still flowin at the 8800

I hope you brought your 8800gts..... you could make a fortune!
December 10, 2007 3:04:49 AM

I've gotten some work that Feb is looking to be the new date, which contrasts with a lot of people who originally said summer. Any new thoughts on this?
