    Opinions on this? nvidia's latest conference which introduced their workstation boards, the fermi, their ceo was waving the board around saying its "few day old silicon", "this puppy right here is a fermi" and such when it was a fake board all along. it might have worked if they didn't allow people to take photo's. but they did.

    They just live in their basements, they never leave. Luckily a mother is always on call if they want some pop tarts, pizza, and other junk food, as well as milkshakes, cola and energy drinks.

    Wow. First the relabeled Geforce 9's, now this?
    Nvidia needs to stop. I trusted their products for their performance and amazing processing power but this..?

    I think I might move to ATI soon.

    and then GTS250 is just a relabeled 9800GTX+ (which was just a relabeled 8800GTS G92 to begin with) that nvidia tried to pwn off on unsuspecting consumers who thought they were getting a good 200 series card

    well nvidia are notorious for rebranding of cards. flahship cards too.

    ati do it too. but i'm fairly sure they do it to cards they ship off to dell and such (like 43xx and some 46xx)
