Palit Breaks the Mould, Shows off Non-Reference 9800 GTX+

NVIDIA regulates its partners from coming up with non-reference cooler or PCB designs for certain high-end products. It seems like NVIDIA has either lifted the regulation over GeForce 9800 GTX(+) or has given Palit the exception of coming up with a non-reference design for the GeForce 9800 GTX+. Palit showcased a card sporting a red PCB with a component arrangement dissimilar to that of the NVIDIA PCB, at the ongoing NVISION event. Quick snaps of this card were taken at the Palit booth. Additionally, Palit also showed-off a GeForce GTX 280 card with a factory-fitted Tieton water block made by Danger Den.

question, why? They have GTX260/280, R4870/50 and X2, just Non Ref those and Leave the 9800GTX+ in the past.

Why is everyone flipping out cause the PCB is red? I've seen plenty of Nvidia cards with red PCBs.

High end NV cards are prevented by coming up in non-reference designs. Ever seen a non ref 8800 GTX / GTS (G80) or Ultra PCB? Ever seen a 9800 GTX before Palit's that doesn't look like this in some way or the other?:

i guess your right but it took some competition to get them to lower the Price of that card.
