As always seems to happen when we approach the release of nVidia and ATi's latest and greatest, there's always so much hype on the net that the facts tend to get lost in the shuffle. So it was with great joy that I came across this article that endeavors to lay out the facts about the upcoming NV40 & R420/423.
Here at Elite Bastards, we don't profess to know any more than the rest of you when it comes to what these new boards will offer - However, as we've been keeping a very close eye on all the information flying around the Internet in recent weeks or months, now seems like as good a time as any to try and compile that information and attempt to make some sense of what we've heard so far. So, without further ado, let's try to assimilate what we know about the two high-end parts expected to be launched by ATi and nVidia into a kind of FAQ of what we know so far.
