Default All rumors and FUD at this point !

Nvidia Facebook:

source : "We want to apologize for the confusion around our most recent GF100 update. To clarify, the" and scroll down to the bottom of the comments.

Harrison Fleetwood asks Nvidia : "So is everything on the net relating to these cards just rumours? One rumour has come up saying the 480 runs hot and power consumption is as much as a 5970."

Nvidia
"@Harrison. Hi, yes, all rumors and FUD at this point. And Sam, yes, I agree. Although, it will be fun to look back at all of the rumors and FUD after the launch event and see exactly how far off base all of these stories are."

It is a post from Nvidia, I mean I don't think they're lying about this.

+1

The only person that is less trust worthy than a lawyer is a PR guy for Nvidia.

one thing in particular I would agree with him about, is that it will be very interesting to see the facts after the launch to determine how accurate/inaccurate the current rumors are.

Well, this actually doesn't say that the rumors and FUD are not true or that they are very far off base

Obviously not all of them can be false, not if there's so many of them. GTX 480 performance estimates go from as fast as HD 5870 to faster than HD 5970, so there's bound to be someone, who got it right.

Indeed and I'm already happy it's not gonna be Charlie (-> http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...&postcount=185)

My guess is an average of 20% fps increase over HD5870 ^^ That would be pretty sweet imo. This is speculation offcourse !

So, rather than telling people something and dispelling the rumors, they just have an arrogant ass attitude about and call everyones info "FUD." No wonder they love Rollo over there.
