    I can't remember the last TPU review that gave anything a perfect 10. This graphics card must really be something special.

    I think you're right, actually. I just read a bit of that review and W1zz said that it's the first card he's ever given a 10 to. I doubt that any other products ie mobos, PSUs etc have ever gotten a 10.

    Asus does release some amazing products when it puts its mind to it.

    EDIT: review is here.

    this is one of the best tech sites on the web.

    I knew about TPU in 2004, shortly after it started up and used to look at the news and lurk the forum regularly. However, I didn't bother registering for the forum until December 2007. It's a shame I didn't register in 2004, as I could have been one of the original members and had a million posts. :ohwell:

    Congratulations, W1zzard! A well deserved bit of recognition for the countless hours of hard work you have put into this site's fantastic reviews! I have been "lurking" here for years and I am glad I joined! Cheers :)

    Me too, especially if it just so happens to be a reference PCB 670 with 4GB GDDR5 ;)

    Why restrict it to video cards? There'll be motherboards, PSUs, sound cards, headphones, keyboards, mice, cases, etc. which are "W1zzard" signed. :laugh::laugh::laugh:

    When perfect 10 is given to any product from a long time reviewer who rarely does give 10/10 rating, I am sure the majority of companies would make sure it is published somewhere on their site.

    I don't need Asus to tell me that TPU is a Tech Giant!!

    I wonder how Nvidia feels about that quote?

    That is not all, Gelid has TPU stats right on packaging. First time I got a TPU branded sample I was proud to be a member here.
