"We got word from a NVIDIA partner that the NV35 will come with Detonator 50.xx drivers for all operating systems and that the driver should be available on NVIDIA.COM within three weeks.
In a seperate email it appears that NVIDIA will ditch the NV30 from the product line - completely. I don't know if this is true but based on sales and performance it appears likely. NV35 fixes all the things wrong with NV30; the 128Bit memory-bus is now 256Bit and the cooling solution is far more suave.
NV30 was launched with the PR image of "Are You Ready?". Soon after it's launch ATi responded with "Are You Ready For More?".
Apparently Chief Executive Jen-Hsun Huang was furious with the NV30 and prevented the expected Feburary roll-out from going ahead until the engineers built up a model that could tackle the ATi offerings. We were told that some engineers were fighting for their jobs (and some were fired?) and had an absolute grilling from Jen-Hsun, whom knows all too well that NV30 could well have started the process of NVIDIA annihilation."
