NVIDIA'S FX 5950 Ultra (NV38), which we've reported about before, will be introduced in San Francisco this Wednesday.
The launch has moved a few times. Originally Nvidia was contemplating the 13th of October, but it couldn't get all of its ducks to fly in line on that day.
Meanwhile the Geforce FX 5700 Ultra (NV36) is supposed to arrive on the shelves on October 26th, with a press release scheduled on October 27th.
Anyone who breaks these rules will have their knees capped, because NDAs from Nvidia are seriously dangerous things. NVDA wants to present the "clear, concise and powerful message" that the Geforce FX family of chips is a "top to bottom" desktop graphics family.
