That's the 780 you linked to, which has nothing to do with rebranding the 600 series to 700
Why? Because some random posts a comment under a YouTube video? I can see why you follow Cult of Charlie.

EVGA Teases ACX Cooler for GeForce GTX 780 and GTX 770
As far as my post on s/a.... I think it's worth noting.
Seems to be quite a lot of your posts on the HD 7970 GE review thread - none of which actually address the card being reviewed...but an awful lot concerning Nvidia cards. Some people might deduce a fixation.
Also, nice to see I've got a fan.I'm flattered.
Simple deduction and a rudimentary Google search. Try it, it's easy: [username] + Nvidia + [negative adjective]
Here's something for you to consider. I also have different user names at other forums. :eek:
Me too. Here's a freebee for you. My name appears on the byline and my username at the end of the article. You'll have to dig a little harder if you're looking for my present SA title though.

yup, instead of just deleting the post and facing potential conspiracy theories we decided to clear it up and inform users, which is why tpu exists after all.



it's located in the driver's code. Yes, you could mod the driver, but due to digital signature requirement it wouldn't load anymore unless you make some changes to Windows and NVIDIA would fix it quickly, then the cat and mouse game starts using more and more complicated protections

According to Anatolymik (who did exactly what you described quite a while ago)
his present SLI hack is very difficult to counter, due to the way it is written (pretty low-level and early in boot if i remember)
Before that was possible,Nvidia even had entered some malicious code into their drivers to make systems crash that had the hack installed...intentionally.

So, Hybrid SLI with different cards, and the hack should still be up and running somewhere along these forums,for the people that want to try it out themselves ;)

Is it because you're banned using that username... So you mainly blow smoke here for us at techPowerUp... ostracized from other haunts?
Lucky us :cool:

Seriously though. I do not think I have ever seen him post a single thing on this forum that is helpful to anyone. :laugh:

You want to talk about blowing smoke ? How about I put together a little compendium of your supposed versions of events? There's certainly a lot of misinformation to choose from.

Re: that account. I took Charlie/Copper to task for daring to suggest that Chas might actually follow through with getting some articles out regarding Intel's lawsuit failures (AMD, Nvidia specifically)- since his stock answer to anything that could lead to Intel criticism is to sweep it under the rug...oh, and being one of those daring to question the veracity of John Fruehe's (also known as JF_AMD on many forums) claims for Bulldozer, and the subsequent banning of people who questioned his numbers - nothing like having a sig that basically says "Company VP" to help sway the moderators into wielding the banhammer. And my account was very, very far from being the only one chopped.

Here, allow me to help out.
You and Casecutter should really torque up the personal baiting- it really becomes you.

Just stop posting, anything you are posting has nothing to do with the title of this thread.

Oops.
Anyhow, I'll take your advice...assuming you take your own that is, and Casecutter can restrain himself from playing wingman.
