FUD Zilla claims NVIDIA may be able to launch its Fermi-based GeForce cards in January after CES:
We have been informed that the A3 version of the chip should be the final one to ship in retail and that the current situation seems feasible for a January launch. However, this launch is likely to take place after CES.
The performance of A2 silicon is good but for some reason, Nvidia has decided to go for A3 silicon on its retail products. This inevitably caused a delay and forced Nvidia to push the product from November to January, and we hope for Nvidia's sake that this will be the last delay.
