Good to see cheaper parts. Correct me if I am wrong, but can't the companys that sell the card produce any style PCB they want. Such as the low profile 9600gt from Galaxy. Is this just a new reference board?
Good point, Bob; nVidia doesn't actually make the cards.
New partners might start by using the design immediately (if any new companies actually want to jump into the high-end field at this juncture), but how much does it cost existing partners to re-tool/configure to produce the new design?
I don't know how much that cost them in man-hours and such, but you know they'll want that money back. So, they might not drop their prices for until some time after the new cards are already on the market.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
The price drop isn't that much but still something. :)
