NVIDIA is happy with its 7900 GTX and GT sales. We learned that some of the top etailers in the USA and Europe sold all the cards in the matter of hours. We are talking about thousands of cards.

If you want to order more 7900 GTX and GT chips you will have to wait a week or two before Nvidia manages to ship a second batch of the cards. 7900 GTX looks much more attractive than the 7800 GTX 512 as it draws less power and it runs much cooler.

Not to mention the fact that you can overlock it to 700 MHz easily. We also learned that you can order how many 7600 GT you want as Nvidia has a real volumes ready for its partners. It literally shipped thousands of chips and it has more.

X1900 XTX and XT will continue to coexist as ATI dropped the prices and made its cards even more attractive. The fight is going on and no one from sparing partners is planning to give up. ATI do have an advantage as it doesn't have any chip shortages and is happily ship its 90 nanometre part. The performance is very close but Nvidia runs cooler, quieter but it also sells for more money. µ
