    Could this be the very first picture of NVIDIA's GeForce Kepler 104-based graphics card? This Mr. Blurrycam shot has been doing rounds in Chinese forums. While it may not seem convincing at first glance, several features of the card in the picture seem to match the layout of the GK104 reference PCB which was pictured, earlier. To begin with, on the top-right corner you can train your eyes to a deep cutout, for the unusual piggy-backed 6+6 pin PCIe power connectors. The rear panel bracket is a 100% match (in layout and design of exhaust vents), of the one with the true-color image of the GK104 PCB. The only feature that clouds the plausibility of this picture is "GeForce GTX 670 Ti" being etched onto the cooler's shroud. We're hearing more voices refer to the top GK104 part as "GeForce GTX 680" than "GTX 670 Ti". We're also hearing that NVIDIA will adopt a new GeForce logo, so that glaring "GEFORCE" badge on the top of the card looks plausible.

    UPDATE: Added less blurry picture.

    Does nobody in the Eastern Hemisphere know how to focus a camera?

    Inexcusable, but he is forgiven for bringing us this pic. :D

    Or they quickly put it on a white table and snapped a quick picture while the men in black were in the other room? :cool:

    But seriously, GTX 670 TI? \o/

    Right, the slot/cutout at the other end(blurred :banghead:) seems to match the stacked 6+6 pin connector, and probably is the best evidence of it being a GK104 besides the rear panel bracket design.
    However, the 'GeForce' badge (also blurred :mad:) is unusually large seems more like a cardboard cutout. :rolleyes: Photo of an early engineering sample perhaps?!

    I'm more inclined to call it fake simply because it has GTX 5/670 Ti engraved on it. Since when did Nvidia label their cards?

    I think the source site(Red Quasar BBS) has heard our complaining ;) and has posted another copy (much better quality!) of the card.

    I'm hearing the "GEFORCE" is actually a green LED-lit logo with green acrylic that reads "GEFORCE GTX". The logo protrudes out (to give it a 3D feel).

    Bless you.

    So this card would be the Nvidia GeForce GTX670Ti? Quite a name...

    Nvidia GeForce GTX670Ti ... the last one please close the door. Really... I smell cartel oligopoly. No real faster card, perhaps not different in price, so we get expensive shit again - I will skip this generation from both camps.

    But, but, but... free markets and competition, isn't all this good for the consumer?

    The "free market" concept should belong to the fairy tails. We clearly see that it works only like an exception, not a rule.
    @punani Lol fake ?

    The GK104 graphics card will cost me 1 of the slots on motherboard no methr if wee poth
    liqwed cooleng block on :mad: . AMD card can get you 5 monitors plagens in 1 slot ,and rely no the need for slots for dirent hardware is needet, so if i want to bild 4 wey SLI liqved coold ill will not be eable to poth in any audio card or PCE-Expres SSD (REVODRIVE 3 .....). Nvidia rely need to reconsider thes dizain. Speshely bicos the way, 3 way monitors hawe to be plagd in .:banghead:

    wtf

    Is everyone blind here or something? If you rotate the picture, it clearly says GTX 570 TI.

    Btw all this speculation and saying nVidia will not win this round is really annoying the piss out of me. Nobody has real numbers or specifications of the new nVidia cards yet, so stfu.

    I'm going to buy whoever is faster, it may be AMD or it may be nVidia.

    It looks like 670Ti in that same squared-off lettering.

    Except there was never a gtx570TI, and if you use your brain, you'd realize that what you are seeing is shadow.

    So what if there never was a 570 TI?
    Look at the picture again, it clearly says GTX 570 TI if you rotate it and upscale by 4x.

    So this is either a fake or a new nVidia card.
