NVIDIA informed me this afternoon that those slides have been faked. I haven't even seen any performance slides for what it is worth as the card is still a ways out.

Me too, I felt disappointed when I saw those slides. Thanks for letting us know that those are fakes BTW.

I may not ever be able to afford these but that doesn't mean I can't hump the air around them.

Personally i didn't think those slides were too disappointing. I just think if they're going to straight say they're fake that quick, they better show greater results when they do release them :mrgreen:

the only difference i notice between 8x and 16x is the performance hit, generally cant tell visually

the Fermi cards must have the power to run high quality games at that setting tho...i'd hope

Wow they really should, they've had quite a while to get at least a single (real) working card up!

lolz! Guess they have to keep the 300 series available for re-branded parts.

Curious whether 480 will be a 512sp and 470 will be 448sp or if 480 is the 448sp part and 470 is some other chip (gf104?)

Interesting how it's 4xx instead of 3xx. Will 3xx be reserved for lower-end and rebranded cards? I'm excited about the anti-aliasing that they have. Now that their implementation of anti-aliasing is more efficient, I'm hoping to use it in more games (then again, if I had a 4xx card, I'd already have enough power to run all my games at high anti-aliasing modes even without more efficient implementations). Anti-aliasing makes quite the difference.
