"While Microsoft may feel that the introduction of Vista was more groundbreaking, in our minds the introduction of NVIDIA's GeForce 8800 GT was without a doubt, the most significant new product introduction in 2007 for the PC. "Why!" you ask? Simple. No other product had as profound an impact on its intended audience. While Vista launched to a lukewarm reception, and it's true that there were faster GPUs that were launched earlier in 2007, no other product sent consumers scurrying to reach for their credit cards quicker than the GeForce 8800 GT. Online retailers across the globe sold out of their GeForce 8800 GT cards within a day of the GPU's release last October."
