    Price will be dependant on performance. If the launch is anything like the GTX 280/260 launch we may see some price drops not long after launch (if ATI drop prices).

    "Nvidia GeForce GTX 480 Launch = Late March 2010
    Nvidia GeForce GTX 470 Launch = Late March 2010"

    has that actually been confirmed yet or is that still speculation?

    Cheers.

    Unconfirmed date is 27/29th of March 2010. This is when reviews will go up, but don't expect to get stock in stores on day one.

    PS. Nothing is confirmed until its official, nothing official as yet :D

    I'll take that GTX260 from you :D

    edit: is there anything we don't know about the card other than how much power it sucks, how it performs, and how much it costs? ==;;

    Whatever the performance is, nvidia had the time to figure our a price based on what ATI's cards are selling for and performing..so it should be better than the GTX 280/260 launch in terms of pricing...one would hope.

    reason for nvidia delaying graphics card: "playing the demo too much"

    There is no such thing as an unbiased opinion, nothing is neutral.

    Every article you see will either be biased for or against Fermi, it's not just Charlie's that are like that...
