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.

    Used to be, before they started the Radeon series. Then they expanded and mostly moved in the US I think. Reply

    That's funny, I was only talking about the manufacturing part when they put the boards together. Like the person said below intels fab is in the US and the global found is building one in the US, other big fab is in Germany I think. The biggest chip maker from Taiwan took the tech from Intel.

    The manufacturing part is the easy part, the engineers do the design, witch I believe is done in the US. I doubt the guys in China who manufacture the boards have much schooling at all.

    Keep sending the jobs overseas and it won't matter if it would cost 100% more, we won't be able to buy them at a 200% discount without a job.

    You know intel has Fabs in the US(AZ,NM,OR maybe some others) and AMD/Global Foundries are building one in New York. Reply

    Wow, I hope you don't live in the US. Reply

    I wonder how much more expensive they would be if they were made in a Western Nation? Reply

    Thousands of dollars... Seeing as we would have to import most of the engineering talent. Reply

    Rough guess 40% up, maybe even more. Reply

    So let me put it on the table: why the hate?

    And frankly I think they must have some issues with the card because they take quite some time, and even the date mentioned might be extended, but I also think the cards will be more than 5% faster than the current ATI's, except by that time ATI might indeed have something new and improved to release, not that it matters since they are sitting pretty anyway.
    Plus it will obviously be very dependent on the game, with all the FP horsepower the fermi reportedly has I guess it would be very good in OpenCL/directcompute/CUDA and games using that should thus leap ahead.

    Anyway I hope they remain competitive enough to put pressure on ATI and make enough to stay in business, because the HD4850/70 were half the price of their 5xxx counterparts, and I can't help feeling it's because of the lack of pressure from the competition.
