According to insider nVidia sources, the conference call which brought the bad news about nVidia's Q2 earnings may have also hinted at more good news for ATI.
The conference call also involved a briefing on nVidia's upcoming nv30 GPU and questions aimed at the company's CEO, focused mainly on the readiness of the new chip. Although Huang , nVidia's CEO, tried to avoid replying, questions became very specific and he did state that the card should make it in time for the holiday season.
The main fear of the people involved in that conference was that the new product may be delayed bringing further misfortune to nVidia shareholders. The CEO's responses did little to ease worries about nv30 but although he did admit some delays were involved, he remained adamant that the company was in the process of wrapping-up the product.

What this news story really means is that if the nVidia leaks are correct, the big winner will be ATI who will get an extended period in which to tout their graphics supremacy with their upcoming Radeon range. If ATI manage this period efficiently they could end up biting a sizeable chunk off from nVidia's high-end market share.

the main thing that ATI has to do, if all of this comes true...ie the delay......is not sit on their collective asses waiting to see what nvidia does. ATI is notorious for setting a record and then expecting noone to step up to challenge it. We'll see what ATI does.

Bah, who cares, once people see what the NV30 can do and how much better it can do it than the 9700 then Nvidia's troubles will be over. Or once people get their hands on the 9700 and see how much the drivers are hampering its performance then they will go to Nvidia.

hey John John, do you work for nVidia? and can you go suck a d**k you blind following sheep.I mean, wtf is wrong with you? NV30 blah blah this nv30 blah blah that. STFU about the NV30 untill its even close to launch thx. Why oh why would you care about nvidia so much? Dont you understand that by ATI releasing a good card it holds nvidia from having a monopoly? Are so such the blind Pursuing faggot that you are oblivious to the fact that this whole thing is a good thing to the common consumer?nuff said... the radeon 9700 will be the best card on the market Till atleast December.. untill than STFU thx..

Anonymous do you work for ATI? Coz you certainly know how to kiss their cheap asses, only poor c**ts who can't get the real goods say shit like that, nvidia deserves to run their monopoly coz they have proven their card's are worthy. I ain't supporting nvidia either, but what you said to John John just proves you are also a blind following sheep to ATI. Calm the f**k down...geez some people takes everything so damn serious

hmmm.... im kinda pissed from all this cos when i got my geforce 2 ti, it was the best on market. that was january... damn. ummm anyways, ati cards are pretty phatt, but nvidia's are better (not to mention cheaper :p)what really s**ts me is that hercules f**ked up their contract with nvidia, they had the best cards on market, now they just crank out third rate raedons... damn+ i agree wif anonymous about how nvidia shouldnt have a monopoly, otherwise i wouldnt be able to afford a geforce-wateva when it comes out :P

DuckWaffle I don't think that the GF2 Ti was ever the best on the market, by the time of the GF2 Ti's release GF3 and GF3 Ti was already out. Did you mean GF3 Ti? I never owned one of those, I ended up getting a Geforce 4, but how is the GF3 Ti?

ATI May Gain by NV30 Delay Possibility

I don't like ati!But when did they release a Radeon 9000.Its on pricewatch. I hope they come out with that GeForce 5(assuming thats what it is called)I don't keep track of this stuff too much but I just have one question:Is a GeForce 3 Ti 450 Golden Sample a good card? It has 128 MB of 4 ns memory.Man and I forgot the company!but is in general that a good one?I am not a N.E.R.D. like anonymous but I hate Ati!They love ignoring u!They hate you, but love ur money!

NoQuestionsAsked if you are gonna buy a video card right now probably the best one to get at the moment is the Geforce4 Ti 4200. It is really cheap, $130, and it can overclock to Geforce4 Ti 4600 speeds with no problems. I'd wait till the NV30 gets released, Geforce 5 I guess, cuz then they will have their high end and not so high end versions available. For me, I am gonna get the fastest NV30 they put out.

The Ti 4200 has uses the same chipset as the Ti 4400 and 4600. If you take off the blue orb or whatever cooling you got the main chip still says NV25 and it has all the same markings as the Ti 4400 and 4600. I think the only difference is the stuff laid out on the board, the 4200 is smaller than the 4600 and 4400, and it uses 4ns memory instead of 3.3 or lower. I can still get mines to Ti 4600 speeds. I will however, wait till NV30 is out and upgrade to that when I build my new system.

Lol how long has this shit been goin on?... i rem a few yers ago when it was 3dfx and nvidia, now ati... u like nvidia cuz thats the first card you got... just like with everything else you buy.... im not gonna argue wit ne one but in a few years... not right now i say the two companies left standing are Amd and Ati..... but im not sayin intel will go out of business or sumtin noo they are too big for that, but they will stop makin chips... well dats all i gots to say... oh and dont reply to this, if you do ur a doumbass cuz im just sayin what i think, i dont want ur opinion

ATI May Gain by NV30 Delay Possibility

Nividia's card when it's released will only be slightly if not on the same level as the 9700. But you can rest assured that card will cost at least 150-200 bucks more than ati top card. As for the driver issue those problems are being solved. This is good for the graphic card industry. You don't want a monopoly in this indusrty or you will start to see sh**** products.....

ATI May Gain by NV30 Delay Possibility

all you fags are dumber than shit .The new nvidia is coming out in like 4 months from now and ati's new radeon 9000 is allready out and shiping by now . And it is far more superior to any thing you have seen yet with 8 vertex pipleines and 4 commands per clock cycle that will just shatter the compation . And even if nvidia comes out with there shit its still late as hell and they still have to compite with matrox and there new Uber fast card i think its called the parhelia and its souround video ( 3 monitors for one game omg that is so tight).

ATI May Gain by NV30 Delay Possibility

eh, sorry to tell ya DonKing, but the parhelia is uber-gay. 3 monitor surround was good, but performance was horrible, it is not even DX9. And the GF4 still performs better than the Radeon 9000 and parhelia.Anyways, back to those who know what they are talking about.

ATI May Gain by NV30 Delay Possibility

As for better, you must be a fan boy for nividia. In this competative market all it takes is a few mistakes to fall from glory. You seem to forget the company 3dfx?? And the others. Companies that believe they will always be on top are the ones that end up chapter 11. To say that ATI will never be better than nividia or any other company in that respected market is silly and more or less explains your child like reasoning. In two years or so, things might totally change. All i know is this...the competion now is great for gamers. It keeps the cost of these high end cards in check.
