DX10 to take off in 2H07?

The folks at DigiTimes had a conversation with Edward Chow of AMD/ATI, who seems to think that demand for DX10-class graphics cards won't pick up until mid-to-late next year.

"With no boost from DirectX 10, the graphics card market will stay put in the first half of 2007, while watching Vista's acceptability, according to Chow. In the second half of 2007, DirectX 10-compliant products will see demand pick up, so the competition will heat up, with more games and blue-laser products hitting the market, he added."

He's probably right for the vast majority of the market.  But we bet there are more than one of you power user's out there itching to get your hands on a G80 as soon as possible.
