    Just wondering, does anyone have any (relatively) solid info on the upcoming NV40 or R420 cards? Do you think the RevB G5s will have them?
    Who knows, maybe they'll launch with the new G5s (wouldn't that be awesome for mac gamers?)
    Just curious and hoping to generate some response... this is my 3rd post and sofar I haven't gotten any feedback on my other two...

    I know that the new high end ATi cards will be released as two seperate versions. One will still use AGP while the other will support PCI Express. The nVidia cards however, appear to use a 'bridge,' which, while making the transfer of data *slightly* slower, will allow the cards to be used both in an AGP or PCI Express slot. Thus, such a 'bridge' will eliminate the need for two seperate versions.
