    Here are some delicious pictures of Inno3D's dispatch of GeForce GTX 400 series graphics cards, that are ready to ship. Come 26th March, and box-loads of these will reach markets all over. Initially inventories of GeForce 400 series cards across board partners could be low, but it is normal for a new GPU to have small inventories initially, which iron out in a few fortnights' time. Inno3D's accelerators most likely adhere to NVIDIA's reference designs.

    hmm, just seems it should be "authorized." No matter, it's what's inside that counts! Nice box design though.

    change to a different language.

    UK US AUS loads of different Englishes.

    I'm a Norwegian, it doesn't matter at all where i'm from, but well, i can travel for an hour and have problems understanding what people are saying.
    It's still Norwegian, but its said and written different from how i learned it at school.

    words can be written in two ways.

    I think it looks odd with the S :p but that's just me :p

    Because Firefox's dictionaries are the leading authorities on correct spelling.


    Anywho, back to the pictures ... my skeptical self smells a rat.

    • Third pic - the boxes in the background are clearly different to the one open (which has had no tape put on it yet - so maybe it just hasn't been closed yet).
    • Second pic - I don't know about you, but those GPU boxes don't seem to fit properly in the big box. I guess you might be able to squeeze that last one in, but it seems strange to have so much free space in the box. Maybe that's just my tetris head being anal.
    • Second pic again - the GPUs in the box are a mix of GTX470s and GTX480s. Is this likely to happen?

    Anyway. It's just some pics of boxs. When they're listed at eBuyer I'll be convinced.

    I thought the boxes looked odd, made me think they were dummy boxes or something when you compare them to the ones in the background.

    Though it could just be in the process of being packed as you said.

    I think there's also a chance that you could fit the third card in the box of 4, there is a gap between each graphics card box, looks like you could push them together making more room.

    As for the box having mixed GPUs, it is a bit odd, but then if that's a single order going to the same place, I see no issue in mixing the SKUs around a bit as the retailer will still have to remove them from the box and log them in to inventory anyway.

    Hmmm, the sceptical side tells me that these are "engineering samples"

    My totally uneducated guess would be that these photos are the idea of the PR department at Inno3D. Someone in the PR department decided they wanted photos out there of them shipping 400 series, so they trudge down to the warehouse with a few retail boxes and get the warehouse guy to put them in a box to be photographed, hence the brand new virgin box that doesn't look anything like the beat-up boxes in the background and possibly doesn't fit the retail boxes correctly.


    EDIT: gotta love a virgin box.

    I'ma go a head and say these are probably 100% Legit

    Cmon guys they come OUT on the 26th they've already had a 6 month delay even if there was a massive fuck up 6 months is about 40% of the way to a new series let alone fixing something.

    All you pessimists seem to be not thinking things through very logically and just calling BS on everything.
    wolf says thanks.
