Lots of news about upcoming graphics cards have been revealed this week.

The Inq managed to get some more info about the upcoming NVIDIA GeForce 8900 GTX, they heard this card will feature 25 percent more shaders than the GeForce 8800.
We know that this will speed up some of the games and definitely in the "scientific" GPGPU calculations. We heard that the card still has the same G80, 90 nanometre core but Nvidia might be veiling some info. We know you cannot clock the G80 more than 630MHz unless you "goto" water cooling. With that you are still topped at 680+MHz.
The card will be launched by the time that ATI unveils its Radeon X2800 (R600).
