Word is going around that NVIDIA's 55nm version of the GT200 GPU will arrive next month in the form of replacements for the GeForce GTX 260 and GeForce GTX 280 cards.
We heard that they might be out by November, but this is not something we can confirm at the moment. There should be two products, one to replace GT280 and one to replace GT260.
From the original prognosis this new card might actually end up marginally faster than Radeon 4870 and 4870 X2, but it won’t leave them in the dust which means that Nvidia will have to wait for 40 nm chips in 2009 to turn the situation around.
