At its main press conference this year in CES, Nvidia stamped in stone where it's heading in the future: towards a consumer technology design house, rather than a more "geeky" PC component design company.

Literally one minute was devoted to mentioning that its upcoming Fermi products are "in production", but Nvidia didn't go so far as to confirm an actual arrival date.
