Graphics card specialist nVidia will launch a host of new video cards next month, with what appears to be an overclocked 8800 GTX leading the charge. “Sources” said that nVidia will call its new top of the line card the 8800 Ultra and is intended to one-up AMD’s yet to be released Direct X 10 graphics card. (That card was supposedly to be unveiled last week, but AMD got cold feet and pulled the plug on the announcement at the last minute.)
This morsel of news also suggests that nVidia will debut lower end GPUs when it announces the 8800 Ultra. The graphics card rat race never ceases to be riveting.
