After i saw this, i wished i had 1500$ to spend, butttt i dont.

Anyways, would be great if a NVNews reader snaged it : O

i really dont know if you can trust this guy, but heh.

It's a retail boxed card. :)
That is good news for sure.
NV must be on the ball getting the cards ready and shipping. :D

I suspect it is going to go over 1k!

I know there were a few people in the forums that wanted a 256MB card really bad! Is 1,000$USD too much to ask, think of what you could do.

1) Pretend you are a hot shot at some big review site!
2) Pretend you are a big shot game devloper!
3) Run around town telling people you own Nvidia
4) Take the card to clubs to pick up chicks.

The box looks like its an 'nvidia' brand. He said he was an asic devloper, could we be so bold as to say, He got a developer board? Or a review site board? That is my dream to buy a card from a reviewr some day : D

WHY?! Who would want an early version? Bettor off waiting for the final retail release JUST IN CASE they update something (bug fixes, remove some uneeded capacitors, shrink the size, etc)

Almost, its gonna retail for 499$ as well as the radeon 256mb retails for 499$

When geeks (with money) are willing to pay 900$ to have the best card (not) on the market, i think nvidia can safely say, they have a winner.

$1500, that's the price we Aussies will get.

Anyway, I don't want a damn card that can't do 6xAA+ faster than a 8 month old card could.

When is that damned NV40 going to arrive?

you should, but you may not get much above $500 though, yours wont be the first anymore, but you can still do that and buy a geforce4 ti4600 for like $180 :afro2:

Well I've come to find out from some friends *nvidia cough* that this card is a quadro able card. Meaning i can flash it with the Quadro FX 3000 bios and tada, hardware Quadro FX 3000.

Considering It has the NV35GL core on it. I should be able to milk a good amount outta it if I wanted :).

Seems tempting.
