    It looks like Apple got confused. According to NVIDIA they are releasing the chipset around the same time for both the PC and Mac. They revealed it first on Mac because MacWorld Tokyo was good timing for them.

    Oh well, before PC users or not, we have a GeForce3 for Mac, and that just kicks ass.

    Ya, i noticed that too. The people that were testing it are too cheap to buy a Mac, we all know it.

    Maybe its just because there are more websites covering PCs than Macs.

    As reported on the Nvidia site, the pc version was released 5 days after the mac card.
