If they can do it with babies, they can do it with cards.

That is how babies are made, right?

This either needs to get here soon, or they need to push Kepler wayyy back so I don't feel like a sucker for getting two.

But what's the point of these fancy versions of old cards when new, much faster cards are coming out? As a consumer, I really don't care how much R&D you guys put into the card or how many features that are of no value to me it has. I care only that it has good real world performance (ie. actual games), good price/performance ratio, and is quiet.

When I see cards like the "[blah blah] Super Overclock XXXXtreme Thor's Hammer Vin Diesel Edition", all I really see is "Marketing Gimmicks Edition", and when it comes this late in the game, all I REALLY see is "Will Never Buy It Edition".

As a side note, I'm disgusted in general with the marketing tactics used more and more by hardware companies these days. It's mostly fluff. There are $150-200 motherboards that are just as good at OC'ing as $400+ ones, there are $300 CPU's that are almost as good as $1000+, etc. I know this is nothing new to many ppl, but clearly companies are still managing to sucker ppl into buying their shiny beads, or else these dumb XTREME edition products wouldn't be coming out.

PS. Military class marketing is a total friggin joke. Seems some companies don't have any shame left.

Kepler still has another 6-7 months at least and that's reference models. New cards come out every 12 months so what's the big deal? Nvidia just took forever to do GF110 right and had to do two revisions. That's not MSI's fault.

I don't know about other companies but MSI's military spec is actually certified legitimately by the same companies that also certify electronics for military use. They're not the ones that are just tacking on marketing BS like some other companies.

First off, I highly doubt ATI's next gen is 6 months off...and second off military spec is bull**** because you don't need military spec for a motherboard or videocard. It's the same crap phone companies try and pull when they release 810F/G phones, like people actually need that kind of durability. And 3rd, the fact that anybody believes MSI's products are on the same level as military parts is laughable. The military is in a whole different league.

All of this stuff is pure gimmicks. It's sand thrown into the eyes of consumers who just don't know any better.

Some ppl enjoy getting ripped off I guess, or boosting their e-peen cause their videocard has "dust removal tech".

I am afraid i will Disagree, i have had Three Military class tested MSI boards just up and die on me, i am for one inclined to beleive it is just marketing BS

I love the dust removal technique. Keep dust out of the video card, but in your case!
