FUD Zilla claims NVIDIA will introduce 55nm GeForce GTX 200 series graphics cards by early December. The new cards will overclock higher and will have a significantly reduced power consumption.
Nvidia is planning to have its 55nm GT200 cards in retail / etail by early December. The company has started shipping these chips a few weeks ago and evaluation boards have been manufactured a few weeks ago, too.
Now the wait is purely logistic as it takes a long time to get the cards from Taiwan and China back to the western world. We learned that new cards should overclock better, but the first wave will be clocked at the same speeds as Geforce GTX 260, 216 Shaders and we suspect that GTX 280 cards will also get a new 55nm chip.
