Admittedly no details, but at least we have something more concrete than the constant whispers and rumours.

I love how it says AMD knocked off $20 to bring the 3870 to $199.

Good luck finding one at that price. I've seen them over $300.

I'd be willing to bet that it'll be closer to February 09 than February 08... I hope I'm wrong though.

They didn't renig when they said they would be doing yearly refreshes. The 8800 came out late last year and the refresh just came out just about on time a month ago.. While supplies havent been quite up to snuff on the GT, I got mine 2 days after it came out so it was no paper launch.. Nvidia has been pretty much on time with all its releases in the last year or so, I see no reason to expect this will not be out around Feb 08.

=(((((( i was just about to get the 8800gt 256mb

how much'll these be priced over the current gt though? i might be able to justify to myself not to wait if it's alot more =]

edit: i just noticed midend only comes in june.

W00T Save up 500 bones because it's coming!
November 30, 2007 1:23:25 PM

The 8800gt 256mb will be priced UNDER the current 512mb GT as its the same card with half the memory. Especially if supply can keep up with demand and the price stays around the MSRP the "street price" will be WAY UNDER the GT "street price"...

man its just way too early, although i dont think i mind considering the current dx10 cards arent really up to snuff in the dx10 market. I think ill wait until at least the refresh if not till geforce 10 comes out... i already have an 8800gts that i spent 300 bucks on and could get me though a couple years... except crysis

i didn't really catch your last statement... street price of what is supposed to be way under street price of gt?
November 30, 2007 1:46:41 PM

Any specs leaked yet?

I edited my last statement to include your quote, but it seemed in your original post that you were insinuating the 256mb 8800gt would be more than the "current gt".

EDIT: But I assume now that your original post mentions you were going to get the 8800gt 256mb then suggested the 9 series GT would be more than the "current gt". Not that the 8800gt you were going to buy would be more than the "current gt".

Lets live and see, about that time nvidia said they'll be releasing "high-end" D8E (two 8800GT on the chip). These projects are pretty much excluding each other, either D8E will apear Q1 08 and D9E definately later than February, or D8E will be caned.

no worries mate ;)  i reread my initial post and it does look like it could be interpreted wrongly as i didn't make it clear. yeap i meant what you said in your last edit so it's all good

and harrisson, 2 8800gts on a single chip in 2 months? now that's REALLY putting me off getting a card now =((
November 30, 2007 2:47:22 PM

Well maybe I'll just get an EVGA so that I can step-up in February.

I am gonna wait until march and buy the 7600 gt or the 8600 gt or the x1950 pro , it will all depend on the price and the performance. I know the gpu prices will drop by a lot :)  , i am looking at 8800gt's going for less than $200 after MIR. Now imagine the price of the 8800gt after the 9 series are in the market...but ima stick to those 3 cards... hopefully i can score a 7600 gt for about 45 bucks after MIR....right now it's 65 @ newegg.com http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

or i can always just get this card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

WTLW, why was this old thing bumped?
January 31, 2008 9:34:05 PM

Aren't they just talking about the Nvidia 9800X2? which isn't really a standard card..
February 1, 2008 7:04:17 PM

Nv Geforce 9600GT out 21st February. Hardly new news, but I might aswell update my post since it's been bumped.

Rumours have it at $167 for the 256Mb. $208 for the 512Mb. Non-confirmed so I can't see AMD worrying about sales of the Radeon HD3850 yet
February 1, 2008 7:57:11 PM

Gawd.. Save your money and stop wasting it going bleeding edge for something that will be replaced with something 2 times faster in a few months. To boot it will probably sound like a vacuum cleaner in your PC.


I still haven’t found anything out there to make me sell my 3+ year old 7800GTX.
February 1, 2008 8:09:24 PM

lol well then thats just you tleavit, a 8600GTS for $100 beats your 7800GTX in games not to mention the 8800GTX doubles its performance and even those in SLI, heck even the 7900GTX in SLI couldnt beat a SINGLE 8800GTX.
February 1, 2008 8:19:28 PM

You do realize that article is over two months old, right?
February 1, 2008 9:10:08 PM

From what little I've seen, the 9000 series will only have modest gains since they are based on the g92. So I still don't see any great 8800GTX killer in 1Q 08. I also don't expect the 9000 series to perform anything like the HAL-9000.
Hope I am wrong!
February 1, 2008 10:33:48 PM

I am sorry for bumping guys , forgive me ? I don't even care about a top of the line gpu , all i want is a cheap 7600 gt , 8600 gt , or a x1950 ... we will see in march when the prices come down even more :)  ... right now the 8600 gt is going for 65 bucks at newegg.com and in a month after the release of the new nvidia gpu , the price will be even lower ya know... There is no way in hell i am gonna pay more than my whole pc just for a gpu because my pc cost me about 90 bucks.. i got a good deal from newegg.com

AMD x2 4000+ @ 2.1 $30
foxconn mobo $25 (**** onboard video lol)
2 gigs of corsair mem (ddr2 and has big heatsinks lol) $30
rest i took out of my old computer :) 

so thats about 85 bucks then add like 10 bucks for shipping :) 

the computer is awesome man , just need a cheap gpu to go along because i only play css , bf2 and cod 4 and those games do not need a fast gpu really

Please don't dredge up old threads that are time sensitive, this original thread was before the GF9600 got pushed back, the G9E isn't slated until mid '08 now.

Anything new, create new thread.
