Nvidia and AMD next series cards delayed to Q4

If you were holding off on a new card or choosing for a build expecting the new series from either brand to be releasing in the next few months as was rumoured you might as well go ahead and buy from the current 6** or 7*** series now.

Both companies have delayed release until quarter 4 of this year

    I'm guessing that there was something lost in translation.  Nvidia will have a new high end GPU chip out shortly, and they're already selling it in Tesla cards.  AMD will have a new low end GPU chip out shortly, as well, and Nvidia likely will also.  In the $100-$500 range, we've long known that both AMD and Nvidia were at best going to have new cards to fill gaps in the lineup (e.g., an AMD competitor to the GeForce GTX 650 Ti or an Nvidia competitor to the Radeon HD 7770 or 7850), and it was likely going to be just rebrands or at best respins of old GPU chips.

    The real advances don't come until a 20 nm process node is ready, likely in 2014.  Nvidia's upcoming Maxwell architecture (aka, Project Denver) could be nifty, but that's also 2014.  It's rumored that the first Maxwell cards will be on 28 nm, though that will likely just be low volume parts to test out a new architecture on a well-understood process node.

    AMD doesn't really need a competitor to the 650ti. The 7950 is the same price.

    Doh, misread meant the 660ti (horribly overpriced)

    No, it's not.  The Radeon HD 7950 is around $300, while the GeForce GTX 650 Ti is around $150.  You're probably thinking of the GTX 660 Ti, which is a different card entirely.
