    Good to see a new pinball game out. Unfortunately, I know that most retailers will carry little to no stock of it. I remember when Pinball Hall of Fame – The Gottlieb Collection came out for the original Xbox and I had it on order for a solid 6 weeks before it came in for me.

      well he woulda either dumbed down the speak for tv (given even the lady in the clip was essentially asking “what does nvidia do?”), or he’s just a lackey that gets notes passed to him

      either way nvidia may “possibly” get a stock price boost
      part of that will come IF people start picking up on gpu instances:
      §[<http://aws.amazon.com/ec2/instance-types/<]§ given amazon moved on it, other cloud computer service providers (ccsp's?) may follow which would mean shipping in bulk and with high margin products the other part being tegra2 based products coming out: §[<http://getandroidstuff.com/lg-optimus-2x-tegra-2-dual-core-phone-official-fastest-smartphone/<]§ we'll being seeing phones, and no doubt tablets, touted at ces when we'll mass shipping product though is a different question (i'd say we're looking at pretty terrible battery life as well) as for graphics cards, my recommendations are amd

    AMD Radeon HD 6950 to HD 6970 mod

    So, AMD is not short in ripping people off?

      • GTX1924
      • 9 years ago

      Funny how no one complains that AMD ripped off those people who bought a 6970…

      • ew

      Intel and Nvidia do the same things. They just usually make it impossible to undo.

      I wouldn’t doubt some GPU’s are in the same position as AMD’s CPU’s. Some are binned parts for the 6870’s, some are parts that didn’t quite meet the spec. As always with these things, YMMV and I wouldn’t guarantee everyone would be able to achieve a “free” upgrade.

      • can-a-tuna

      Giving access to higher performing PC part with the price of lower part. What a ripoff!!

        • sweatshopking
        • 9 years ago

        Nobody was freaking out complaining about amd ripping of people when you could unlock cpu’s. now it’s working on GPU’s and suddenly their dicks? make up your mind. the rampant back and forth hating is getting stupid.

          • GTX1924
          • 9 years ago

          There is no rampant back and forth hating. But just imagine what those guys who bought 6970’s must be saying??!!?! They paid much more for the same card that they could have got for way less….HAD THEY KNOWN….

          THATS THE ISSUE

          AMD JUST RIPPED OFF THE FANBOIS WHO WERE GULLIBLE ENOUGH TO BUY A 6970!!!

          THATS THE ISSUE!!!!

          (damn fanbois cant piece that together without being slapped in the face)

            Not exactly a like-for-like though. Considering that:
            1: 6950’s vRAM is slightly “rated” lower than the 6970’s (1250 MHz v. 1500 MHz)
            2: 6950’s 2×6-pin has less of a headroom for OC’ing than the 6970’s 1×6-pin and 1×8-pin

            It would only be a rip-off if they were EXACTLY THE SAME FOR EVERYTHING EXCEPT THE SHADERS BEING DISABLED.

            Troll fail, GTX1924. Please try (and fail) again next time.

            • 9 years ago

            No, sorry there is rampant back and forth. WHAT ABOUT THE GUYS WHO BOUGHT A QUAD CORE PHENOM?!!??! OMG!??!?! F that. You pay the price for the part you want. If i want a 6970, and am willing to pay retail, purchase it, and it does what’s advertised, how can I complain?

    NV stock going to $20. Hmm. If HP announces a Web OS based tablet that doesn’t suck with Tegra 2 in it at CES or a little later, there may at least be some quick cash to be made…

      no sir. 6950 to 6970 mod looks legit. Another thorn in my side for buying a 6870

      • dpaus
      • 9 years ago

      You only got first post because SSK has no power – an unfair advantage to you!

        • sweatshopking

        LOL! you’re right! just came back on!
