When are the new ATI and Nvidia Cards Due?

I have a GeForce 3, but after seeing the write up on Sharkeys (I think it was sharkys) about UT2002, I think I will need a new card. I would like to skip over the Geforce 4...

Has anyone heard when the new cards from ATI or Nvidia are due out? I think I heard late 2002 for Nvidia, but I have not heard anything on the ATI card. (Ohter than that was what was used to play the Doom3 demo at E3!!!!)

I forget which, but either the inquirer or the register had a bit recently about this. Basically, the rumors are that ATi is very close to releasing their DirectX 9 R300 based boards. Apparently, they'll be calling it the Radeon 9700 and we may see them as early as later this month.

nVidia is apparently much further behind on their DirectX9 NV30 part as they were rumored to have taped out only relatively recently. Their expected target delivery date would be early Q4.
