Isn't the 18th the day G80 information is released the "editors?" Can we then expect to information online?

I dunno if specific details as to what G80 will be split. Perhaps a few performance numbers...as compared to a GX2 etc in terms of percentage. The full new architectural details and extra bits can only be revealed on launch date..otherwise it wouldn't really be a launch. Editors day may just be a "lifting up of the G80 skirt for quick peek" but without revealing too much.

I know this much....G80 chip has an IHS covering it and there are 2 chips, one is the G80 gpu and there is a smaller one as well, what it does I don't know but it is apparently programable.

When is this event starting ? When does it finish ? Is it confirmed that today is Editor's Day ? All we have L'INQ telling us so.

But perhaps it's true ( I really hope so ) and journos have been given presentations by Nvidia. Are they still going to be under NDA till the unveiling party ? Or will they be allowed to - ahem - 'divulge' aspects of the G80 ?

Hmm, suspense is killing :D

I'm pretty sure it's true, otherwise Jakup is up there for nothing :captnkill:

Unfortunately, I'm not sure. One thing I AM sure of is that Jakup is still under NDA :thumbdwn: Heh...

I say we kidnap him and force him to play with low-end ATI cards until he lets the facts out.

Specs have been out for a bit, but I've not heard much about shader 4 implimentation...
