Has anyone noticed how all these claims seem to appear around the same time as each of the 7xxx series cards launches?
When the 7970 benchmarks appeared that one Nvidia slide was leaked showing the Nvidia 7xx series appeared. Then again a few days before the launch of the 7970 another slide showing the Nvidia 7xx series appeared. Well now we know both those slides were fake because 1) it's the 6xx series and not the 7xx series and 2) Nvidia haven't got any performance results now so they didn't over two months ago when those slides appeared.
When the 7950 was released or just before there was all the rumors of the $300 Nvidia card that is going to beat the 7970. There was also the rumors of the Physx block and how the card would destroy games that used physx.
Now less than a week before the 7870 and 7850 this rumor pops up, INB4 more rumors appearing on the release day or just before/after the 7870/50 go up for sale.Edited by PureBlue - 3/1/12 at 9:32am
