Theo Valich heard rumours that NVIDIA may be planning to release its 55nm GeForce GTX cards next week, on December 16th of December 18th.
We heard that nVIDIA is preparing something big for next week… in a form of properly timed, events taking place around the globe. Well, there are no confirmations, but there will be usual suspects, a gathering of press, partners, nVIDIA executives… and so on. If tose rumors are true, press would get a weekend of testing, and the products would be launched either on Tuesday, December 16th, or Thursday, December 18th. Personally, I feel that this belongs to “no way” category, but I cannot dismiss the rumor if there is something whispering from the rumor mill.
Everybody we asked remained coy about the timelines. Nobody wanted to confirm anything, but one thing is certain - according to my sources, nVIDIA is not going to wait for CES 2009 to introduce its 55nm parts. Are these rumors true? Well, like any rumor, take it with a fairly large grain of salt. But I am just the messenger here, don’t shoot :-)
