    Beats the ASUS Mars in terms of limited edition.
    I wonder how much Colorful will charge for this baby.
    And knowing iGame series, I bet the core can reach 1ghz.

    One of the worst press releases, grammar wise, I have ever read.

    Not great but .............pretty well.

    If I'm going to fork out a bunch of money on a limited edition card it wouldn't be for a mid-range card.

    Edit: I just noticed on the "Do not disturb sign" it says (innokids)....:roll:

    I never understood the point of any kind of limited editions using crappy not even mid range cards.
    GTX 580 with a NVIDIA CEO hand written signature (not printed sticker) and only 500 cards released yes, but GTX 460. C'mon!? What a joke lol

    What's the point of making a limited edition über-card based on a mid-range price/performance GTX 460? This card basically throws the best selling point of the GTX 460 out of the window...

    @Yellow&Nerdy?

    There are people who will pay more for limited edition of Volkswagen Polo than for Volkswagen Passat.

    If its priced the same just like 460 lightning, its quite tempting. If its priced high because of its 'limited factor', NTY.

    That looks totally awesome, but I don't think it's really worth getting a metal case and a bunch of other crap you don't need just to get a fancy heatsink.

    That doesn't look like a shark, it looks like a dolphin whose fins have been cut off for soup, and as compensation got two propellers, but they overheated and burned the dolphin, thus the black colour. But a shark?

    Anyways, nice idea, wrong card.
