The Inquirer report on some entry level sub-$100 DirectX 10 based graphics cards to surface in the near future.

Nvidia's first affordable DirectX 10 card, the G86 is almost done. Production is scheduled for March time but it may yet slip into April. We are talking about volume production, as a limited number samples are already done.

Meanwhile, ATI expects to be in full-scale production of its RV610 chips in April. Cards based on the chip are therefore unlikely to be launched at Cebit.

But we are talking about ATI's first 65 nanometre product, which it will put up against Nvidia's 80 nanometre-based G86.

Get the full scoop here peeps.
