The previous date rumoured by Fudzilla – November 28th – seems to have been pushed back to the “first week(s) of December” for Nvidia’s much awaited Fermi GF100 GPU. 

This is still great news compared to several rumours that continue to float around the internet – suggesting Q1 2010 for widespread availability at earliest. 
Fudzilla’s sources confirm that Nvidia is taking GF100 pre-orders “like there is no tomorrow”. Surprisingly, Nvidia’s partners seem to be taking pre-orders inspite of there being no guarantees on the final shipping date – though “first week(s) of December” seems to be the official estimate, for now.

Once again, it seems that Nvidia is targeting the workstation and HPC markets first – these do have the highest margins. This may explain the contradictory rumours – where a case might happen where Nvidia serves the workstation markets before the gaming GPU market. 
Despite bagging tons of pre-orders and ordering large quantities of 40nm chips, Nvidia still expect to face shortages from day one, due to heavy demand. 
GF100 is expected to end up significantly faster than HD 5870, though it is unknown how it will compete with HD 5970. If these rumours are true, the HD 5970 may only have a couple weeks lead time, after all. Interestingly, Fudzilla are the only reporters to have mentioned a dual-GF100 board, on release in early December. We will wait for more details on GF100 to see if that would be possible. Nvidia are likely go out of their way to ensure they regain the performance crown though. 
Let us hope that Nvidia can ship out a stellar GF100 product as soon as possible, despite all negative rumours, at the right price. This could lead to price wars, once again.
