now that Nvidia pr has given us (from many sources), pictures and features. Also some fairly meaningless 3dm benching. Nicely done launch with lots of viral seeding. If this card lives up to the hype, should be a monster! If it doesn't, should sell well anyways, as this has been one fine ad campaign - with several internet personalities used nicely. Not one has broke ranks and released any real fantasy game numbers. Is unfortunate that preview websites and forums are losing meaning. :beer:
ronnn, there are ALWAYS leaks when new cards are released. Especially when it's something as significant and as highly anticipated as the G80. I don't think Nvidia needed to "seed" anything.
When all the leaks are virtually the same, with slightly different pictures? Nice little mystery chips, and only 3dm scores? Very nice official looking charts with all the exciting features. This is marketing and yes all companies do the same. But give credit when due, has been very nicely done. The flow of information has been nicely controlled, not one leak showing several games with some IQ comparison - maybe by a lack of fully functioning drivers out there. Personally I think this card will be a monster performer!
