If there was any doubt after Saturday night as to what NVIDIA's prybar was for, this should put it to rest. FedEx just dropped off the prybar's companion, the venerable wooden crate.

Top: Caution, Weapons Grade Gaming Power

Side: 0b1010110010 [690]
BT-7.080
G08-H86-A000

Applying the prybar in a slightly more civilized manner than we would in most video games, we find the GeForce GTX 690 inside. (ed: If this was a 90's video game, then according to the Crate Review System NVIDIA is already doing very well)

That's all we can show you for now. We'll have more on Thursday.

    When amd is late, it's easy to "forget about it" till the day after one expires, and thus it never matters nor means anything.
    Wouldn't want to send any bad vibes about toward the extreme fanboy company.

    ...but doesn't having a crate at the get-go automatically make NVIDIA review badly? StC score would most certainly be zero or negative in this case. Higher StC scores are technically better according to your source.

    Still, hilarious if that was the context they were sending it in.

    Sorry this is less cool than it is gay. Reply

    Can you clarify how this is gay? I just want to understand how much of an idiot you are based on your response. Thanks much. Reply

    Hey, at least he used "than" right. Reply

    LOL.

    While I found it to be funny, I still thought the whole "gag" of packaging the card up to simulate some type of military grade equipment to be a bit much/eccentric.

    Allow me to clarify.
    One opens the crate and doesn't find a gun.
    How *** is that ?
    I guess you're supposed to pick it up and go "bang ! bang! bang bang bang ! " while "pointing it" at.. errr something, then start feeling all out there and manly...so long as you don't injure yourself or the delicate item your tender nerd fingers holds.
    Maybe run around the lab chasing your lab partner while giggling and then flop on the couch laughing and saying "you're dead!" (be careful to hold 680 away from possible woolen and static couch material)

    hmm, let me read that box again; "weapons GRADE, GAMING power". That doesn't sound like a gun to me. Care to try again.

    Since when cheap plastic cases are the same as nice looking wooden boxes? Valuable things usually come in wooden boxes, you know, like good wine.
