Actually its this month of the "launch" not Aug .

The 9500 for a MSRP of onl $179

That will but some major pressure on nV and should if true replace the Ti4200 as the best bang for the buck. Consider that with in 2 weeks of the R9700 Pro launch you could buy a Pro for $330 I wonder if the 9500 will follow the same price trend. If so thats great for us to have a DX9 part at the main stream market.

But then really, nothing sure. With the inquirer track record, it could very well cost $250 or $149 - i wouldn't take their rumors as facts, even for MSRP.

Actually if they specs are true (4 pipes and only 128 bit mem interface) then the 3 biggest cost factors have been removed from the total price which will greatly reduce the cost (4 pipe = smaller die, more parts per wafer, 128 bit = easier packaging and layout, 8/6 layer PCB vrs 10 layer PCB, ect). So I could see a something a bit under $200 as beening a good cost target.

enough talk about specs, let's hear performance numbers!

it should be interesting to see, at least.

If it IS 275mhz, 4 pipes and 128 bit bus ( and this is a big if because if it isn't the case, i refuse to assume the following statement ) , it'll be a competitor to the Ti4600 in performance, probably won't be much faster, but will have DX9 support.

Really, IMO, the R300 performance is nothing revolutionary. You put 8 pipes on the GF4 Ti4600 and put a 256 bit memory bus while OCing the whole thing to 325Mhz and... tadam! Nearly as fast as the R300. I said nearly because after all, it's one generation after the GF4. It would be surprising if the transistor-to-performance ratio isn't better.

You say that as if it's a trivial thing. And what would you get if you did that? An NV30.

Probably not the best one to link to though, as it cites nV News as the source.

If it did have a clock of 325Mhz and no improvements in the architecute ( unlikely seeing the differences coming from the NV20 architecure ) , then you're probably right. But that's very unlikely.
