Default GeForce 8800GTX Benchmarks

Looks like dailytech decided to give the finger to nVidia and publish Geforce 8800GTX results even though the NDA has not been lifted yet. I gotta say I'm not impressed with the dual PCIe power connectors... I really value the tidiness of my case, and something like that pretty much forces most people to use molex to PCIe adapters because VERY few PSUs actually come with 4 PCIe power connectors.

I wonder if there are going to be any repercussions for disobeying the NDA.:eek:

It could be strategic disobedience. nVidia killed all of their G71 inventory with that killer 7900GTO SKU. At this point do they care if anyone doesn't buy a high end video card for a week? I haven't heard anything official from nVidia about this, and honestly if they were really upset about it, I think we would have. I think this is all about the hype-generation.

If NDAs were really that cut+dried, then we would never see a leaked photo, or leaked benchmarks, or people taking the world records before anyone else can get their hands on the hardware. This is all marketing. I for one am totally buying into it, too, haha. I don't think I can afford it this time around though.
