    If you ever get a green light from the laws... of physics and economics, be sure to let us know. :smile:

    Yeah, maybe they'll put a phase-change cooling system on it stock too, then clock it at 350MHz. 'Cause, y'know, they probably figure the important thing is that the checkboxes and the price look really hefty, not the actual performance.

    NVIDIA has some great engineers and all, as G80 proves, but man I hate the "If NVIDIA didn't do it, it must suck" attitude that creeps into these kind of discussions, and has for years.

    nVidia hasn't used an Asian hotty as their mascot, but it surely wouldn't suck if AMD did..
