Word is out on the streets that NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 280 (GT200) will be launched on June 18th. The specifications aren't known yet but FUD Zilla claims the card may have as much as 240 shader processors.
The launch should take place on the 18th of June, just in the middle of week 25, and at current schedule that is two days after ATI's RV770 launch.

The name Geforce GTX 280 looks a bit odd, but I am sure that we will get used to it. The only other alternative was to use a Geforce 9900 cliché, but we believe that GT200 deserves a better name. As it's been suggested on many occasions, GT200 chip will have significantly more Shader units and the most frequent number that we heard was 240. We are still working on getting the confirmation of this bold spec.
