    While I agree that the second PC with the random sound card is more than a little bit sketchy, there are about twenty thousand different ways they could have faked this and made it look orders of magnitude more realistic than this nonsense. It can't have been leaked by nVidia, unless they failed to fire the guy who designed the fake Fermi PCB and halved his already near non-existant attention to detail.

    Of course you really do need to ask yourself - If nVidia did have a working GF100, why wouldn't they have issued an official press release about it? Specs? Benchmarks? Even a little bit of corporate smack talk? It just doesn't make sense that they would choose this way to make it public.

    Rogue employee with a shitty cell phone is always a possibility though, but it still doesn't answer the aforementioned question.

    That said, long card is long.

    still a long while to, interested if it can game on par with ati, or just crunch numbers... not in 3dmark but in superpi and alike!

    Perhaps nVidia is going to do what ATI did with the 2900xt as far as the 6+8pin situation goes? In otherwords, you can run the card fine with dual 6pins, but overdrive (or whatever nVidia uses) will be completely locked out unless you plug in the 8pin.

    Actually, after reading the Anandtech review of Hemlock, I'm surprised AMD didn't put dual 8pin connectors on it (with the same option above). They left the gap for a second 8pin, but it wasn't used...

    I guess they dont need it but there is no "power on" "reset" cables atached to mainboard.

    Ahahaha such a fake. Just the small proof that people have already pointed out plus they conveniently left the FPS outa the camera shot.

    It's an open bench, I assume the motherboard has its own power/reset buttons.

    ATI is stealing all the thunder atm. Wouldn't be too surprise if this cost a liver like every other NV card when it first came out. I rather take red team on price/performace.

    Ey guys maybe you can help me, because I think I might be going crazy or something. The reason is that when I look at a picture showing two testbeds on a pair of shelves, with a graphics card each that look identical to my eyes, the first thing that comes to my mind is that if I was an engineer, maybe my boss would want me to work on more than one engineering sample at a time, so that I have something to do besides making pellets with my navel lint while the benchmarks are running on one of them, and well... be productive.

    The second thing that comes to my mind also worries me, because that thing is, should I want to take a photo of one of those cards, I'd choose the one in which I don't have to climb on a chair in order to get a good shot, wether it is the one performing the benchmark at that moment or not. I'd do that especially if that card is the one at table level and thus will let me include the monitor in a more natural perspective.

    I see no one thinks anything remotedly close to this, so like I said, I think I'm going crazy, because I see and think of things that apparently can't exist, can't happen. Should I go to the doctor? :rolleyes:

    nVidia sympathizer!!! GET HIM!!!

    J/K... I have three computers on my desk right now :) If my desk wasn't in the living room, I'd probably go case less with all them (zip ties and wire-rack shelving).

    Looks about the length a a mobo or even a little short of it. The card looks deeper thats for sure which looks like it comes close tot he next PCI-e connector.


    Only fan boys will enjoy this as this to be honest is nothing special. One crappy as pic o plz.

    It would be lulz if NVIDIA bought an ATI 5xxx card to drive the monitor, and had a fake Fermi PCB with the fan wired up to look like it was running.

    Who knows, the image on the screen could just be a picture for all we know.

    Are you joking? I hope you're being sarcastic. Anyone can boot a PC without power and reset switches. Just short the pins with a screw driver. :shadedshu

    Well I don't see proof it's real, but I also don't see proof that it's fake. About there being more than one mouse/keyboard... really? I still hope you're being sarcastic. I'm going to post a pic of my work bench in a bit just to confuse you (since multiple mice are confusing) more.

    I hope you are being sarcastic, because what you said won't prove anything. lol
    Besides none of the motherboard's diodes are on which do illuminate. The motherboard isn't turned on. Although he didn't mention that I did notice (assuming that's a Asus Rampage 2 Extreme). So sit back and relax, there is no reason why you should get yourself so worked up about it LOL.

    That pretty much sums it up, just a lot of believers that it is fake.

    I still believe its within the realm of possibility, given its actually there in the flesh, its just whether its actually running Unigine Heaven or not.

    Too tired to be creative tonight.

    Besides, he might actually be going crazy from days of nVidia vs ATI threads :D

    I'll let that happen naturally once he figures it out... Fermi GeForce is an anagram for: Office Merger!!! THAT'S RIGHT! ATI IS BUYING OUT NVIDIA! You heard it here first!!!
