Nvidia has given word that they will be putting out their latest high-end chipset, the 790i, sometime in quarter 2 of this year.  Combining the C73 northbridge and MCP55 southbridge, the 790i chipset will feature 1600Mhz CPU FSB, triple SLI, and DDR3 support.
 
There will be two flavors: the 790i SLI and the 790i SLI Ultra.  Like previous Ultra varieties, the 790i SLI Ultra will have better overclockability, as well as support for SLI DDR3 2000 modules.
 
Tri SLI on 790i?
 
The 790i will be replacing the 780i as Nvidia's high-end chipset for the Intel platform, which hasn't been doing to well due to the fact that it does not provide enough over the previous 680i chipset.  One thing to note is that several motherboard manufacturers have decided to delay or even stop development of their 780i boards to avoid problems during the transition.
 
Do you believe this new chipset will provide enough to warrant an immediate upgrade?

hmm, but the features it does have, the wifi internet, the ipod part, are good features, you must admit? :)





N95 Black?

Wifi
BT + IR
3G
8GB internal
5MP Cam
No problem with lack of ram like standard N95
Also higher capacity battery so doesn't die like standard N95

Only thing Iphone has up on it is the browser and in most peoples eyes the looks but I think the black N95 looks the part too.

Soon as my standard N95 dies (which it more than likely will at some point) gonna spank one of them.

i have the n81 8gb and really like it, the symbian os is wicked, loads of apps out there for it. Even got tomtom running on it.

I would never say i hate apple, but i do think the iphone was rushed out lacking a fair few features. Suppose they had to release whilst the hype was ripe! as thats what most apple sales go on.

Well could always download a half decent one like opera I spose? I have that on my normal N95.. Don't use it though.. Just use the normal one and yeah its far from perfect.

I gave Jim my P1i when I got my iPhone and I've never looked back. I guess it comes down to what you use the device for. For me, it's phone calls, txting, internet browsing, watching movies and listening to music. I don't use any of the other features....well maybe the weather widget sometimes.

It could be a better device for sure, but I doubt I'd use any additional features to be fair. I can probably count on my hand the amount of times I've used a camera in a phone lol. The only thing I wish it did have was MMS capabilities, but I can live without it.

I've read so many threads on a variety of sites with people getting really angry with the iPhone. But its like anything, if you really hate a product so much, why bother with it? There are other options available to consumers :)

Jim, apart from the web browsing, I would have thought the P1i would suit your needs better cos it can be hacked about and customised more easily.

Mind you, I wouldn't mind seeing you try your hand a customising an iPhone lol. I'm thinking some phase change unit along with a custom paint job...oh and maybe some funky lighting :D :D :D
