On the heels of a rather unusual (and poorly received) announcement this morning that they'd be showing off the GTX 400 series at PAX East this year, NVIDIA has made a second and much more to-the-point announcement today.
 
The GTX 400 series will be launching March 26th.
 
And at this point that's all we know. Specifications, performance, pricing, launch quantities, etc remain to be seen. Perhaps more interesting is that this is on a Friday. We can't immediately recall a Friday GPU launch, even for a refresh part. Like everything else, the whether this has any significance remains to be seen.

    But Nvidia is 1Q behind.

    Aside from the obvious statement I made, I just hope "Fermi" is not another fiasco like the FX 5800 ultra was. Anyone remember the "Vacuum"?

    Anyways, I will let you know I am an ATI fanboy - but I do hope Nvidia does well with "Fermi". Having only 2 -main- add-in graphics cards makers is a real bummer (***n you Intel for making crappy integrated video, and ***n you for cancelling larrabee).

    I am quite interested though in the capabilities of this video card - I will be watching for the full review of the cards in the very near future.

    I have been using an 8800gt and I am ready for a new card. I cannot wait for Nvidia to finally release there cards. I hope Fermi the best, but like many of you theres no way im paying over 400$ for any graphics card. I cannot wait because it will finally lower the 5870's prices, which is what ive been waiting for all along =). Thanks Nvidia! Please don't disappoint! Reply

    Charlie also predicted the 280 gtx would be a massive failure. Turns out he was 100% wrong there. Let's wait and see before making dire predictions. Reply

    I'd say that he was only 60% wrong. While it was a big step up from ATI's fastest card (the 3870) (about 60% faster), it was also about 2-3x the cost. What were the adoption rates of the 280? Good? Bad? Did nvidia make solid profit with the card? I don't know. I do know, however, that it was a large, hot, hungry, powerful card that cost way too much for me to even consider, and I'm not averse to dropping 400-500 dollars on a Video Card (but definitely not 650 dollars).

    Given that the 3870 series almost sunk ATi, and the mere mention of the part among cycles inside AMD triggers dormant ulcers... that should pretty much answer your query.

    The 3870 also was from a previous generation wrt GTX 280 BTW. The GT200 was also significantly faster than the 60% you quote wrt to the RV600. You are off by an order of magnitude, since most tests the GT200 beat the ATi part by about 400%.

    The 3870 series almost sunk ATi? Link please.

    I'm really not sure why the 3870 and 280 are being compared. They were launched 6 months apart, and vastly different in terms of price and power requirements. The 3870 can't ever have been expected to perform anywhere near the same level, and to be honest, you would probably be able to get three similar performing (to the 3870; try finding the 3870 nowadays) ATi cards cheaper than a single 280. I did some checking on the THQ charts and the difference at 1920x1200 goes from 297% at 8x AA to 225% at 0x AA, and that's mainly because of the massive advantage in bus speed and width that the 280 enjoys, along with the way that the 3870 performs AA. The two simply weren't made to compete with each other.

    Sorry if it looks like I'm picking on you but I'm just going through the new posts and you seem to have made every single one that I've come to thus far ;)
