According to TheINQ. its been officially stated that the 5900XT won't die off anytime soon like their earlier article had suggested. I think itmade sense though to kill one of them off though. Having both the 5900XT and 5700 Ultra both on the market just seems like a conflict of interests.

Yep, funny that nV felt they had to straighten that story out, but didn't give more info than it's a popular card.

I think it's dead, just not going to be dead on the shelves until the product pipeline empties out. You may see them dumpy some more onto the market, but really the segment they grab the cores from is winding down in preparation fot the next generation, and the FX5700 has been redesigned. Interesting to see if this was simply an effort to stem the tide and maintain interest.

I hope it's true... Trust me, the last thing we want is a monopoly, folks.

Remember when AMD wasn't a viable option, and Intel cherged whatever they wanted?

Nobody wants to see that again...
