Of course it's not over. Though I plan to buy this card this quarter, not the next.

I didn't say make a million, but only one. That is what you're trying to get at right? Who can make the fastest card? I really don't care at my age. I grew out of that awhile ago.

The G80 R&D costs were quoted to be somewhere around $450 million dollars.

Taping out a GPU die design costs close to a million dollars (not to mention sometimes multiple tape-outs due to design bugs).

So I doubt you can get a single ultimate speed GPU even with $5 million (not that I think its impossible). But maybe if you just paid some people to make make a ton of them in SLI :).
