Okay nerds, geeks and Ladies, post NV40 launch info, benches, links, benches, more benches, pics, reviews etc. But ONLY REAL INFO! No "maybe" links, vanishing pages etc. Keep it real and clean. :rolleyes:

I don't see this as being a repost thread. Can you be more specific? If so I'll just merge it.

Not sure if anyone has checked or if it's been this way for a long time, but at www.nvidia.com on the left is a pic of the GoForce 3000 & 4000. But on the right are just 3 boxes with rendered water in them. I can't remember when I checked earlier today if it was like that...can someone clarify?

A few days ago the top one changed to water. Then yesterday the bottom one. now all three are. Don't ask me why. Maybe they're preparing to announce something big?!?!? :)

So its the real 16 then? Not just 8x2. Who started the rumor anyway? And why is EVGA is not on the list for manufacturers?

Nice.
So, anyone want to translate all the techical stuff about the shaders? :lol:

Btw, does it really look good so use things like; "R3xx cannot do this" in a press kit? :lol:
Maybe its just me.. :o

*laughs* I got fecking butterflies over this,

and I have to go through this again soon. I am anxious to see the r420 too, but even more so the one that supposed to follow quickly after, what is it the r423?

I like both companies and hope they each do well.
