So when would the AiBs actually get the cards? When would they first actually see them? How long before launch?

Not totally sure on that, but lets say they need a week to relabel and pack the card from when they get them, then they need to freight them to market.

Having a lot of people buy your product doesn't do you much good if they subsequently decide they don't like it. There's a reason snake oil salesmen moved from town to town every few days. ;)

So a couple of weeks?

Look at it this way .. from first silicon to launch is doable in 8 weeks according to what Nvidia planned for the GF100.

All that Nvidia would be waiting on is what AMD did not wait on ... building a good inventory up. Having enough usable chips to cover projected demand.

i believe that Nvidia is not Late; AMD was early and it shows

Yes AMD madly rushed Tahiti to market, for two reasons. (1) To beat nvidia with Kepler. (2) Because Eric Demers was leaving.

Just don't mention AMD rushing Tahiti over on the other forum. keysplayer already got his head bitten off over it, seems to be a bit of a sore point among certain posters :lol: Can't imagine why..... (ROFLMAO)

All this beef over video cards makes me want to chuck my computer out the window at times.

Everywhere. And not just at Wendy's.

So many negative vibes these days. I guess it was always like that though. I preferred when the internet sucked. And most of my knowledge came from PC Gamer.

Probably ATF, or just in general.
