Oh man... It looks like ATI really did surprise nVidia with their Radeon 9700 Pro videocard! nVidia had to redesign the after the R300 was released!

As for the company’s NV30 chip, industry sources revealed that the postponed launch is due to a design change, not a yield rate problem in Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company’s (TSMC) 0.13-micron process as market rumors suggested. Hoping to enhance the product’s overall performance to compete with ATI’s top-end Radeon 9700 PRO, the sources suggested that Nvidia may alter its original six-pipeline architecture to an eight-pipeline one.
