If that's a hard launch, it just saved my ass. I got my 7900GT on August 10.

Indications are that it will be a "hard launch". . . meaning stores will have them on-hand at the time of the announcement.

omgwtfbbq benchmarks. Im not doubting that these cards will most likely be 2x+ faster than current gen, however i am wondering about bottlenecks. CPUs might just not be fast enough maybe? and plus what games are going to need all that power? I just bought my 7900GTO and might possibly have a chance to step up to G80 but i just dont see the point as they will most likely cost 2x as much as i paid for my 7900. My 7900GTO also runs BF2 at 2x SSAA and 16xAF at 1680x1050 so...why would i need the extra power is no games will utilize it?

If the hard launch is the 7th or the 8th, I bet I could probably send in my 7900GT early and have them hold it until the 8800s hit.

Well, you could run BF2 with 8X SSAA... :D

Not to mention COD2 at 1680x1050 with all eye candy, Oblivion, Crysis, UT07...
