I am pretty sure amd has the definitive lead. Even at the high end amd is quite competitive. So I was wondering what to expect in q3 or q4 of this year in graphics cards. Will be seeing anything new from either company's for purely gpu's on the low/mid scale.

You are correct sir. Once you get high end, I can argue that.

No telling what is in store, or when it/they will hit the market. I have no faith in TSMC so any concrete dates on product releases are pointless. If history is any teacher, AMD will likely be first with the new process, maybe with a mid/low end "pipecleaner" GPU that can be sold as a "salvage" product (big GPU chip, with bad sections fused out). NVidia seems to be a stubborn hardheaded bunch so no telling which route they will take. I don't know if they learned anything from their 4XX series debacle.

Said it 6 months ago, will say it again. I doubt there will be any quantity of next gen product on the shelf before Q1 2012. I'll stick by that no matter what the press releases from TSMC and AMD say.
