Nvidia to Unleash 'Fermi' GF100 on March 26

Nvidia hit the social networks, drumming up excitement for the release of its next product. What we've been waiting for, apparently, is the announcement of a launch date for the next-generation Nvidia GF100 hardware, codenamed Fermi.

The official word now from Nvidia's Twitter account is:

Apologies for the confusion around our most recent GF100 update. To clarify, launch date for GeForce GTX 480 and GTX 470 is March 26, 2010

The message was preceded by word that the new GPUs will be at PAX East:

The wait is almost over! The world's fastest PC graphics gaming technology will be unveiled PAX 2010. Visit: www.nvidia.com/paxeast.

Are you waiting for Fermi for your next upgrade?

    Doubt it.
    Released =! Competitive

    Fermi is a really big, really expensive chip.
    I highly doubt nVidia will try to undercut ATI as far as price/performance goes...

    But I, for one, am really hoping that their release will cause for an immediate price reduction from ATI.

    Lately i have been on the ATI bandwagon, but i can't wait to see how the Fermi benchies compare to ATI's current oferings... hope the price/performance ratio is close, only that will drive down the prices.

    I have a feeling ATI has something waiting for when Fermi comes out. It seems like they've been one step ahead of Nvidia everytime for the last year or so.

    Either way, color me excited.
