    Shouldn't the card actually be signed?

    Signed by a CEO. I am truly surprised anyone cared.

    Nvidia is probably just selling this shit under dummy ebay accounts at this point. The desperation levels are high.

    The giveaway cards went to researchers from the Chinese Academy of Science, DFKI, Peking University, Stanford University, Tsinghua University, University of Toronto, University of Tokyo, and University of Washington.

    The seller is based in Canada, so I'm guessing it's one of the cards designated for the University of Toronto. How he got his hands on it is anyone's guess. I have a feeling they weren't designated to individuals but to the universities.

    Think we could get some rumors going and get LTT to scoop it after the fact? ;-)

    lets hope, after what they did shadily to get the one Larrabee card... hope the card skyrockets and costs them a small fortune... this CEO edition card is worthless imho -- no meaningful history at all

    I was trying to assume they just showed the one that was signed. But it is all sketchy as hell.

    I hear it ships with a pre-filled RMA label and a placard stating what you should do in case of electrical fires.

    Enthusiast yes, nerd, no. He doesn't know that much, more product specs and shit, certainly no engineer.

    I think the general non enthusiast public would look at all us enthusiasts as nerds personally. And I'm not saying they're wrong.

    I just want to point out the pointlessness of trying to parse the difference between enthusiast and nerd as technical terms :p.

    Probably playing off the hype of the car listed.

    I saw pairs of Jordan's, Lebron, etc for half the price or more. Hell game word Jordan's aren't much more.
