Agreed wink.gif Would rather they do something with the color scheme. I mean, I do like it and everything, ready for something new though.

Please bring a proper next gen card out AMD !

That's not accurate.

Assuming the specs that have been floated are accurate, GTX770 will have a GPU that is not identical to the "GK104" found in the GTX680.

Just with any other manufactured good, you can't just use the same codename and slap it across product lines... GK104 in 680 vs 670 is different in core count, but even the SKU # is different.

What does this mean?

  • MSI may have bought GK104-400-A2 for their GTX680s, and bought GK104-425 (or whatever the SKU # is) for their GTX770s
  • NVIDIA warranties the GPU claims from MSI based on what is SOLD, so there is no way you can take a GTX680, slap a new name on it, and warranty it properly with NVIDIA after the fact
  • If NVIDIA chooses to rebrand the GPUs by simply slapping a new SKU on it (on the headspreader), then that blame falls squarely on NVIDIA. Just don't blame MSI for you not understanding the sales/RMA process properly between a vendor and a board partner.

You really don't understand how it works, do you?

It's blurred because of NDA. Whomever provided the picture to WCCF in the first place was afraid of some technicality of violating NDA.

That's all there is to it... any other site that shows a complete pic (and the respective board partner) is being escalated to the highest email levels inside that company and within NVIDIA, to the senior VP level.

Trust me. I was previously involved with one of these, it's not pretty when you are put on blast with a senior exec at another company.

The short answer? No.

The long answer? See my reply above about how the GPUs are actually RMA'd with NVIDIA from MSI.
