    you are not only a troll but a blind fool.
    look at the outputs of the card :banghead:
    Palit GTX 295
    [​IMG]

    ASUS GTX 590
    [​IMG]

    And how can it be a fake if the card is already ready and it is going to be shipped and released??

    When I say move on I am talking move about the "attitude", for example, if I looked at the photo's and thought they might be fake I would have worded my post very differently to yours, my point being that noone is going to jump on your case if you simply said for example " I have looked at these pictures and links in detail and to be honest, they look fake to me, i also cannot see how anyone would post them who has a genuine card as they would still be under NDA"

    Because after all you don't actually KNOW they are fake although your origional post clearly stated they were..... hope I have made myself clearer now, anything can be construcive if approached in the right manner and thats perhaps the only reason why one or two disagreed with you.

    I'm at liberty to post anything and everything about GTX 590 as long as I have external sources to cite.

    So you say it is fake, based on a fudzilla article claiming that a totally different release from a few weeks ago was fake? That really warrants the attitude...

    Not to mention that the fan shroud in the original leak, which was fake, did look like the fan shroud of the GTX295. However, the fan shroud in this leak looks like the fan shroud design from the nVidia renderings.

    I'll remind all of you that calling out people as trolls and name calling has nothing to do with the topic at hand and it goes against TPU's posting guidelines. If you have a problem with a post, report it. Consider this your warning.

    Not quite sure why you're so defensive. The man has a point.

    I can't wait for bench results on this card so I can justify buying a 580.

    Hmm. All I saw was somebody pointing out that there's a possibility of a bottleneck with your CPU if you purchase the card. Maybe he just wanted to help save you some cash?

    You could probably go i7 tomorrow if you cancelled your order for the 590 and sat on it for a minute.

    Anyone who buy's this and does not put it under water and games below 2560x1600 or not on a triple monitor setup should be ashamed of themselves.

    I look forward to the review but I'm already pretty sure the price/performance wont be that great at stock speeds and be too hot to overclock very far so this card is just crying out for water.

    :roll:

    The split backplate looks odd. :confused: I think a solid backplate would have been a much better choice.

    I thought the same but after reading your comment i just thought, could it be to give more space for the bottom cards fan when in sli?

    I had to see it to believe it. There is a bigger troll than me out there.

    Nvidia do not control the internet man and what gets leaked they cannot stop. Get proper signed evidence from Nvidia that it's fake then we will talk about it.

    Then as some people said, this is pre launch pics to get people excited.

    I think this looks pretty badass. I'd drop my pants for this in a heartbeat.

    Quoted.
