NVIDIA Names GTX 480, GTX 470 as First GF100 Video Cards

Company still tight on details
GPU giant NVIDIA is betting the future of the company on its
GF100 graphics chips
using the new Fermi architecture. The new chips started
mass production last month
, and are expected to be used in new video cards that will be launched around the end of February.
There still aren't a lot of specific details about the video cards that will use the new chips, but the company has just released information about the names of the first cards to use GF100 chips.
The GeForce GTX 480 will be the high end video card using the highest clocked speeds, while the GeForce GTX 470 will be a more affordable card with lower core and memory timings. Several defective CUDA cores are likely to be disabled in the GTX 470, which is going to be a big production problem for NVIDIA due to the large die size of the GF100.
NVIDIA seems to be almost entirely skipping the 300-series, with only the GeForce 310 occupying the space. That card is
an OEM-only rebadge of the GeForce 210, a low-end DirectX 10.1 part.
Hopefully, this means that all cards in the 400-series will be
DirectX 11 capable

Now that they have a name for the the new GPU's. Next week will be the dimensions of the card. The week after will be power requirements. The week after that will be recommended PSU's for running the cards. The week after that...... You get the idea. So maybe in March sometime they will have "limited" availability of said GPU's (end of March maybe). Sorry to sound skeptical, but that is how I see it. They will delay everyones (nVidia fanboys mainly) purchases as long as possible, because otherwise AMD would have more sales (not that I blame them for trying).

what you ment to say is that NVIDIA is delaying the product to help the people get a good Graphic card and not a die shrinked previous gen's graphic card??
Then yeah it sure did.

I skipped Thanksgiving to get the Black Thursday deals!
I spent Thanksgiving with friends/family, but I lined up at midnight for the deals!
Skip Thanksgiving? Wait in line? No way, but I'll go out today and see what's left.
I prefer Cyber Monday.
I don't do deal shopping... too much stress, it just isn't worth it.
