    *Not only that, but the flat-out dishonesty is that Nvidia gave its board partners 'special' boards to send to reviewers. They are not allowed to give out their own vanilla cards, they MUST use the special set supplied by Nvidia.*

    Damn that's just retarted!

    What the idiot fails to mention is that the manufactures can now design their own pcb and the GPU is a newer version of the 55nm technology.

    Firstly, that Charlie guy from the Inquirer writes nothing but nVidia bash articles and I mean nothing. I do however agree with him on this point. marketing a two generation old GPU as something new is completely misleading and wrong. Shame on nVidia for thinking they can get away with such a slap in the face. Think I'll start calling my 8800GT a GTS250 now so I can look cool.

    This is quite sad. NVidia used to be a top brand with great reputation, but that is going downhill very fast with stuff like this happening.

    ATI is obviously putting them under enough pressure, and they are feeling it, otherwise they will not resort to such underhanded tactics.
    What the mind can conceive, it can achieve.
