Is the GTX 580 Lightning a limited card in anyway? Or will these continue to be available in the future?

If the card is no longer available, what does this mean for me in the RMA process?.
Usually within one week when we get it; however most people fail to take into account shipping.

Frankly from the day it leaves your door to the day you get one back, expect 3-4 weeks. This timeframe is not guaranteed due to the fact that I don't know what you are using to ship.

If it's not available it will be replaced by something equal/greater, or your money back under certain unusual circumstances.

1) No. Varies by region.
2) See #1. Ask your regional distributor.

No idea.

I never said that. If it's not included with the card, it won't have it.

Unless it was part of a promotion (where it was clearly stated that 3DMark11 is provided with the bundle).

It will be available as long as the GPU is available. When I mean "available", I mean GPUs that meet the binning criteria for this card.

However, due to the expensive cost of this non-reference PCB, priority will always be given to making reference PCB GTX580.

Oh sorry, I misread, thanks for clarifying. Why does my Xtreme Edition box say "Ready for 3DMark11" Simply marketing, seems weird to mention it unless it has a way to get it from MSI, futuremark or something
post #435 of 786
I thought it a bit weird too but it's just marketing, they wanted to ride the massive wave of interest that is 3DMark11 I guess... I know that's why I got my Lightning, to play 3DMark.

MSI looks like they contributed a lot towards the production of 3DMark11 (whether that be in cash, hardware, or what have you).

MSIAlex, is there no way for you to get in contact with someone who does know the temperature limits of the card?

It'll be easier if you just figure out what components are used on the board, and Google it.
