Nice... thanks for the assesment. Your analasys/opinion seems pretty fair and realistic.

Edit: Fixed the grammar a bit... ;)

Oddly enough, I forgot about the possibility of simulations. ;) *smacks forhead* Duh! :)

I think that conversation with the analyst is one of the funniest things...

Recap

Quote:

"It should be available for holiday season" J. Huang

"Has the NV30 taped out yet?" Analyst

"Historically Nvidia done a good job with tapeouts etc... We're in the process of wrapping it up" J. Huang

"So it has not been taped out yet?" Analyst

"We're in the process of wrapping it up so the answer is not" J. Huang
i mean... LOL. "Has it taped out?" "Were good at doin that". "But has it taped out?" "uhhh.... *whispers under breath* stupid media.. mumble mumble* were wraping it up........ so not."

Yeah...there should be a daily phone call made to Mr. Huang and posted across the 'net...

'So, has it taped out now?'
'No, damn you!!'

'How about today?'
'(starts to cry) no, still nothing...'

'What about now?'
'Maybe...'
'Is that yes or no?'
'Umm....no....(cries again)'

:D :lol: :evil:
