    From what I've seen lately it would appear that both ATI and Nvidia are almost mirroring each other, here are the latest
    (rumoured) specs.

    NV40: 0.13u process, 200m+ transistors, DX9.1 support, Q3/2003-Q1/2004 release
    R400: 0.13u process, 200m+ transistors, DX9.1 support, Q3/2003-Q1/2004 release*
    NV50: 0.09u process, 300m+ transistors, DX10 support, 2005 release
    R500: 0.09u process, 300m+ transistors, DX10 support, 2005 release

    Reportedly both ATI and Nvidia want to skip the 0.11u process, and move straight on to a 90 nanometer core.

    *AKA the R420

    Neither wants to be viewed as having inferior technology ! :shh:

    Nvidia's NV40 should be an entirely new core, and may be up to twice as fast as the NV35.

    Representatives from nVidia were on hand for AMD's "Tech Tour 2003," and I had the opportunity to discuss nVidia's plans with them. The nVidia rep on hand claimed that nVidia was still on a 6 month development cycle, and that the delays encountered with the NV30 were only an anomaly. He conceded that the GeForce FX 5800 was a failure, and that nVidia had "temporarily" ceded the performance crown to ATI. The rep further claimed that the NV40 core would be out by the end of this year, and that it would be an entirely new core. He was confident that the new part would be up to twice as fast as the NV35. The NV35 should become available within the next 6 weeks, and the rep claimed that the NV35 "spanked" ATI's Radeon Pro 9800 in most benchmarks (although these claims are dubious given nVidia's recent benchmark scandals). He claimed that nVidia's "The Way It's Meant To Be Played" campaign had two ramifications. First, all participating game developers used only nVidia Quadro cards when designing games, and second, many games would have certain features that only nVidia users would be able to take advantage of. The rep showed a demo system running the "Dawn in black leather" demo on an NV35, and claimed that Nforce3 cards for the Opteron would be available in July. He thought that an Opteron/Nforce3/GeForce FX 5900 computer would be an ideal combination for gaming.

    "Dawn in black leather" = Dusk

    ATM I'd rather faster HDD's and other subsystem hardware buses. These are the bigest bottlenecks in the PC and need the most work done to improve but basically HDD's are in need of the biggest overhaul most of all and likely need a whole new technology as the current technology seems to be gettin' close to the ceiling. : peace2:

    I definitely agree with Wiggo ! SATA & PCI Express show signs of hope, but they still lack the same raw speed and power that other components (ie: CPU's & video cards) have. And there are a lot of other areas that still need help, and lots of it ! :2cents:

    Of coarse, faster video cards are still pretty fun....:p
