    borrowing from hellbinder's post in nvnews and elsewhere..

    retail price for the 128mb card should undercut that of the 5800 ULTRA by serveral dollars...

    :note:

    the memory clock speed of 460mhz may have been a typo...

    per the grapevine the clocks may have been meant to be @ 360mhz instead... thereby giving a core/memory clock of 400/360mhz...

    I will update as information is presented...

    retail prices are now around 300 dollars in some places... supposedly 300 @ bestbuy and 299 @ circuit city...

    the bestbuy price was posted on another forum.. I can only assume it is right...

    Very cool. In a couple of years, when I'll be in the market for another video card likely, we'll have to see in nVidia has gotten their act together or not. Otherwise, an ATI card it will be for me.
