FUD Zilla claims NVIDIA's 40nm Fermi "mid-life kicker" may arrive as early as the end of this year. These chips will have to hold out against AMD's offerings until the 28nm Kepler GPU arrives.
The new chip is designed to fight the Radeon HD 6000 series and of course Nvidia thinks that it has a clear win, although we quite sure ATI thinks the same and judging by the sucess of the HD 5000 series, its optimism is well founded.
At this pointe we don’t really know, as much of the information we are gathering is contradictory. We believe that Nvidia's kicker comes after Radeon HD 6000 launch, but there is a big chance that you'll see this new Fermi, let’s call it Fermi 1.5 even in late 2010.

Frankly Nvidia's answer to the 6xxx series had better be here by the end of October (and in quantities people can actually buy) or the holiday season this year will be very, very red right along with Nvidia's face...
