Default Will nvnews be getting a G80 to test?

I remember nvnews getting a 6800 ultra to test back in March or April 2004. Is it going to be the same with the G80? I am just interested to know.

Well I Don't Know about nVNews, But check THIS Out, these guys dont care about NDAs, they tested a G80 on a Core 2 Quad 6600 Running @3.6GHz, It scored over 11,000 in 3D Mark 06

VictorWang doesn't have an NDA, since he bought it with his own money. So he can post all the benchmarks he wants and more! Too bad he has to work like 19hours/day...

I heard he met with Chuck Norris this weekend and combining their powers, they were able to fit 8 into three PCIe slots with only a single SLI bridge.

The gaming performance was so intense that it blacked out the entire Eastern seaboard.

I think the black out was caused by the power requirements of G80 although, it is possible that Chuck Norris Gave a Roundhouse Kick and the whole area blacked out

I don't think Mike has a ridiculously high spec system. I could be wrong, but I think I remember him saying something about it a while ago.

Things could have changed though. Maybe the site is bringing in a crap load of money and its going straight to his gaming system.
