Nvidia is long known to coordinate its drivers to the series of cards it releases. They were releasing 4x.xx upon the Geforce 4 releases, 5x.xx upon Geforce FX(5) , 6x.xx for the Geforce 6. Its really not confusing to follow. What is confusing is the recent release of the 70.xx beta drivers. They are clearly for the Geforce 7 series of cards(which has already been confirmed to be ONLY high end, which would mean 7800, etc.). What does this mean? Does this mean Nvidia is close to being done already with their next architecture? Maybe, but they won't release the card, thats bad business strategy. Personally I don't think that will change the release date at all, considering they have little to worry about as of now. Nvidia is clearly on top as of now.(this is not a flame , just a fact. Performance is close, but Nvidia advertising and availability weight outweights anything ATI has at the moment.) Anyway, I just want some opinions on what your thoughts are on these 70's drivers released. They may only be in beta form, but why so extremely early?
