I love Nvidia, but they are taking long and board manufactures don't want to wait. With suppies of the GTX series getting low, they have to do something. Nvidia is still being quiet on the Fermi cards. To me, I would be flooding the press with pre-production cards right now. Fermi would really have to succeed for Nvidia to be back on top.

Shit nobody is making any money waiting on Nvidia. I say go ahead. And why not anyway? I think they should be diverse it's the only way to stay in business these days. I think they should stay in the Nvidia business as well but only when new parts come out. 

And I don't think Nvidia has anything to be worried about. If you build it they will come and I've heard that phrase alot and it's true.

Should nVidia be worried? I think that if this extremely reputable company started to make ATI cards, nvidia should be worried.  Lately I think ATI has really be winning the gpu wars. They hit a spectatuclar mark on all points of price, performance, power usuage, etc. Just for kicks, my GPU history was a Radion 9000, 6800GT, 8600GT, and now 4870x2. I'm 50/50. I love the performance of my ATI cards but I think I prefer nvidia drivers (layout, ease of use, etc).

If BFG offered a BFG branded ATi card with the usual BFG service and lifetime warrenty that would make me consider ATi again for the first time in years. BFG is one company I trust to back up their products and that is because of my experiences with them.

BFG is an amazing company, I fully agree, but I just thought I'd let you know that I've also had some very good experiences with XFX. Just an fyi in case you're interested.

This entire round of the GPU wars has been great. I will fully state that I am not an ATI fanboy. Of my last 6 video cards, I have had the following FX5200, 2x6800 XT's, X1900 GT, 8600 GT, 8800 GT, ATI 5770 (4 to 2 in favor of nVidia counting the 2 6800 XT's in SLI as a single card purchase).I'm really hoping that this latest round smacks nVidia around enough to wake them up and make them realize that if they are going to charge a n exorbidantly premium price, they have to justify it with a FAR superior product. Not these nickle and dime performance improvements (compared to ATI or their previous products) they've done for the past 4 years (Sorry nVidia fans, but Physx simply isn't worth an extra $100 - 200 depending on the card). I will gladly buy an nVidia card again, but not until they earn my business back.

This would be absolutely fantastic. The reason I still have my BFG GTX260 is that the customer service I received from them has been nothing  short of amazing, unlike my two experiences over the years with ATi companies. If they do go red, I'd finally go ATi 5 series.

 

On a side note, I have to give Nvidia props for their lower-performance parts recently. Ion, Ion2, Optimus, Tegra, Tegra2 etc are all really great parts.

Now if EVGA were to make both, that'd be really interesting.

Evga tried to join the red team a year ago but ATI said that they had enough board partners.

 I guess they have changed thier mind now, if this rumor is true
