LOL. I really don't know much about that site, so I'll take your word on their validity.

Their were also some guys, supposedly, saying the same thing on Chiphell. I don't speak Chinese, so I can't verify the legitimacy.

Here's the supposed topic though:

Never mind, the link was acting crazy.

How so?

Well seeing as AMD hasn't released a single super power hungry GPU in a long time I highly doubt they will beat it. Surprise me AMD.

Urgh. Apparently the only EVGA cards that qualify for their Step-up program are the ones with a limited lifetime warranty. And apparently my GTX460 only comes with a two year warranty. Shame... this version of the HydroCopper looks pretty promising.

Since when did they sell cards without a lifetime warranty? That blows!

I went with MSI this time because I have a theory... EVGA is already selling SC and FTW cards, meaning they're binning chips. MSI isn't yet, so one could assume that by buying a reference card, you'd have a slightly better chance of getting one with good overclocking capabilities than if you bought a reference EVGA card, right? Well that, and EVGA was sold out...

MSI certainly is selling "SC" cards... might not be clocked quite as high, but they've got their OC line so I suspect they might be binning them.

I'm kinda pleased with their Cyclone cooler though. ;)

PNY and Zotac have Lifetime on everything but the GTS450 I believe.

But yeah, EVGA I don't know what is up with them. I have a Pair comming and they are 2 year only. Ahh well with the way GPU tech happens these days, thats all the warranty I'll need.
