Resumindo, nao vai haver 9700 para aqueles lados, pq é rapida demais para o que existe actualmente, e os consumidores não precisam dela para nada. MEGA LOL Por mim, não haver nada da creative até é bom para os consumidores, mas as justificações são demais In Europe you will not launch ATI Radeon based 9000/9700 videocards, this must have been a serious consideration. Why did you factual not choose for ATi ? As I mentioned above we reviewed all available product including the ATI based cards. Firstly I can say that 9700 Pro is an awesome card but there are several other issues that one must take into account. Firstly and most importantly is the fact that over the years the hardware has been advancing faster than software. I think 9700 Pro takes this to a new level where the hardware is DX9 but the API has not even been released (let alone any software). So what are you buying with the 9700 Pro? For sure it is faster than Ti4600 but there is no app that requires the "power overhead" that 9700 Pro has (i.e. Ti4600 runs 1600x1200 with everything on so all additional power is overhead). You could argue that Doom III is the app that will unleash this power but by then NV30 will be out and the balance of power will have changed again. So buying a 9700 Pro will give you the best 3D Mark score for 3 months but nothing else … and that's a shame because as I said its an awesome piece of hardware. What can you tell us about your upcoming NVIDIA product, and please refrain from, it'll be awesome and vague teasers Will there be a diverse product line and can you specify when the product(s) will be available in retail? Also can you tell us a bit about what price-range your future customers will have to face ? Now that's putting me in a really difficult position because as you know NVIDIA are pretty consistent with their "we don't talk about unreleased product" position but here is what I think I am safe in saying … (bear in mind I have seen specs and simulations not actual hardware). Based on what I've seen NV30 will retake the performance crown from ATI by a significant amount. Obviously I can't comment on clock speed etc. but its fair to say that we should see a significant jump based on the fact that NV30 is on 0.13 and 9700 Pro squeezed every last cycle out of 0.15.
