First Benchmark data released.... great tessellation performance... standard rendering is near enough on par with an ATI 5870. So it looks like predictions are coming true, average gaming performance, good programmability. Poor yields, mixed with the 196.75 driver fiasco, long delays and admittedly disappointing initial benchmark data, Nvidia is feeling the pain...

But, in their defense, this is pre-release hardware running un-optimized/beta drivers in one benchmark. They can probably squeeze another 10% performance out of the drivers.
