I think that in a real game the card needs to do some other things apart from rendering hair (or water and so on)

Adds another 11 day wait beyond the 26th of march at the minimum,though it is weird if it's actually Nvidia itself shipping them out directly,and not the vendors themselves.
I don't get it.... then why do all the AIBs have boxes ready??? so NV is going to send all the cards to retailers ? bypassing the likes of EVGA, BFG etc ???

Meh,you're better off waiting for the official reviews at this point,as a ton of leaks will happen within the next several days,like the link to that BSN article i posted above,but no confirmation if it's authentic or not,even though it's supposedly coming from AIB's carrying GTX470/480 cards,so who knows at this point.


Cross your fingers and hope for the best.

Depends on how Metro runs tomorrow...I'd only need NV for PhysX.

Seems that the picture was taken to believe that all those piled up boxes in the background had GTX470/480 cards in them,when in reality,only the first box in the front actually had GTX470/480 boxes inside it,and empty ones at that.....The others boxes behind are other models of cards altogther.


Boxes aren't that hard to make in the end,and it seems to lend some weight that the cards will only begin to ship to retail in early april,while OEM versions that will be installed into pre built systems,and the ones used for the actual reviews on the 26th,ship in plain brown boxes basically....No need for branding on the boxes.

Check out the optimum recomendations for system memory for Metro(it's listed on steam).....8GB or higher


Goes from 2GB on the recommended settings to 8GB or higher on the optimum ones..?
