I can't find "01G-P3-1280-BR" so it probably was misprint.
I know you're wishing for the GTX 280b too take on the HD 4870x2
but sorry nothing there yet.

Interesting. I found this page which seems to indicate it's the same card, and just for fun I looked at all of EVGA's lineup and they've never (from what I can see) used the BR for a graphics card before. They're almost all AR with the odd TR.

Edit - as post #2 said, probably a type-o. Part of me wants a refresh too, but part doesn't since I already have my 260s and I'd rather not get rid of them so soon.

It is exactly the same, only difference is the packaging type.

BR is for RMA replacement, they're NOT OEMs and shouldn't come to retail market(other than eBay).


http://www.evga.com/support/lifetime/

Limited Lifetime Warranty is for all retail Graphics Card and Mainboard products ending in the part numbers A1, A3, AR, AX, BR*, BX*, DR, DX, FR, FX, SG, SL, or S2.
* [Replacement products are shipped out as BR or BX and will carry the same limited lifetime warranty that your original purchase had based on your registration.]

that's odd, my "replacement product" was "AR".

Mind you, it came in a retail box as well.
