I mean not too long ago everyone was saying how pixel shaders are limiting because you can only allow for, what, 64 instructions? Now somehow nVIDIA has raised the bar to 1024. Same thing goes for the vertex shaders, as well as a whole lot of other functions. Those pictures are definitely not proof that the NV30 can render complex models like them in real-time, but I guarantee you it can :P
It's still vapourware. Nvidia can state anything they want on paper, but until I can hold the card in my hands talk means nothing.
