    Where you say "ultra" update, you actually mean MX update. The GeForce2 Pro and the GeForce2 Ultra were released simultaneously, the update was the release of the GeForce2 MX200/400 and the name change of Pro to GTS. About the same time th Ultra was exceptionally hard to find because nVida moved some of the chip producing plants that made the Ultra over to the MX. Where did you get that table anyway?

    It doesnt matter when the FX comes out, the only date in my mind will be the release of the FX update, thus lowering the price of "old" technology GFFX's.

    and to that i say .13 micron fab process. If done correctly wil be much easier to negotiate heat with. Possible overclock will be much better too. Lets just hope nVidia keep the same HSF mounting designs that they had in the GF4 in the GFFX. That way the aftermarket HSF'f used for the GF4 can be used on the new core, making upgrading easier to OC, and allowing the tried and true HSF's to be used rather than going to newer HSF's that may not work aswell. (like theres really that much of a science to it that a manufacterur could screw it up)

    The reference card has mounting holes for this hsf, so the production cards should too.
    Nvidia's manufacturing partners generally stay pretty close to their original reference design.
    My favourite version of this cooler is made by Thermaltake (see below)

    ATI R350 (update)

    Name, Radeon 9900 (originally 10000)
    Process, 0.13 (originally 0.15)
    Memory, DDR2
    Release, Feb/Mar 2003

    If this is true, ATI could soon have a faster chipset than Nvidia's FX, bring on the NV35.

    More FX info,

    Digit-Life has a good article on the Geforce FX
    Tests carried out in Nvidia's Labs have seen FX chipsets from sample batches clocked up to 600MHz
    and in some cases even higher (source: PC Rave)
    Nvidia are planing to give the first public performance of their Geforce FX card during CPL Winter Event
    in Dallas, Texas, 18/22 Dec (source: NV News)
    Production chipsets should be shipped to Nvidia's Launch Partners at the beginning of January, cards
    should start appearing in the following 2/3 weeks.

    Nvidia's NV30 graphics chip has begun small-volume test production at TSMC's Fab 6. (Digitimes)
    A second revision of the NV30 is just around the corner, and it will be this chipset that is put into mass production. (NV News)

    Nvidia to demo the NV30 during a joint press conference with TSMC on the 12/12/02. (Digitimes)
    Geforce FX Regular 400/900MHz core/memory with standard cooler.
    Geforce FX Ultra 500/1000MHz core/memory with Flow Thermal Management cooler. (Reactor Critical)
    Nvidia may allow add-in manufacturers to release a limited number of FX cards in January, with the
    card becoming more widely available during February.

    This is part of an article over at Bjorn 3D.

    "Looking ahead, R350 and 400 are expected to be out this spring. ATi is betting the R400 will be an FX killer.
    So where does this leave Nvidia? Since they work with 3 teams working on an 18 month schedule leapfrogging
    each other, there should be an NV35 that is done if you look at the time lines, and NV40 should not be that
    far behind. So they could release FX, and then if need be, release NV35 fast if ATi does grab the lead with the
    R400. This could make them king again, but you now have a short lived card that will not make the board makers
    happy again. And the PC guys will not be happy with that move either. I would not like to be the guys who have
    to make the decisions at Nvidia on what to do about all this"
