Not a new move from nvidia, sadly. Looks like the relabeling works very well, else they would have stopped this "experiment" after the 8800-->9800 relable.

If you ask me, the last really good nvidia card was the 7xxx series, I had 2 7900GTs (one still around here) - fast, not too expensive & silent.

Bloody hell, Verstapp

This is a major! Still a good way to force everyone to upgrade their phones!

Seti is sown at present, so I guess they are securing their servers from hijack hehe.

You're just jelous that I discovered the film and stills to use for my avatar/profile many months ago way before you. It's probably the best avatar/signature/profile combination going in BOINC right now, even though I still prefer Fosters.
