    Thanks to two members from SLIZone Forum, F34R and Obi-Wan Kenobi, we learned that nVidia is going to launch a new product on Halloweeen. Back on GPU Technology Conference, we were told that the company will launch a GeForce-based product "end of October" and "early November", but that seemed 2-3 weeks too early for Fermi, GT300/GF100-based desktop cards.

    After checking out EVGA.com, we found a page in the news section that announces the event as well. As it turns out, EVGA and nVidia teamed up [or to be more precise - EVGA's engineering team delivered] and organized a launch party for 300 lucky participants who will come to nVidia's campus over at Santa Clara, CA and witness the launch of a new GeForce product. This kicked out interest into high gear, but being geographically dislocated [there are 'only' 6131 miles as the crow flies between my building and nVidia's Santa Clara campus] meant that we'll have to skip on the event. We turned to our sources and after few hours discovered the reason behind the event.

    Eh, this feels bogus to me.
    Not the whole thing, something will happen, but it doesn't make much sense for this specific product. On the other hand, it will be 3rd into 4th year selling the 8800 with a different name, so, why not lol.

    I am curious.
