    I know what the Easter Egg is - Tom Peterson is actually a computer-generated character being run on their new GPU... lol

    He's pretty realistic, but they obviously couldn't generate enough polygons to do his eyebrows properly. :)

    In an alternate universe where top-tier single player games are still economical to make. Like it or no, everything's about multi-player these days and I don't think Valve can move Dr. Freeman to that sort of a format so they've decided to let him fade into the great beyond.

    For me to believe it is something really top secret and new, it has to be some wicked effective and quiet cooling solution or a compleatly new card designed for raytracing.

    On Thursday 24 March I'm likely to be rather miffed that I recently took delivery of an Asus G73JH-A1 laptop(its awesome and I'd highly recommend to anyone) but I suppose its better to wait for Intel to release X68 chipset and CPU's before building new PC.

    I'm excited to see the supposed GTX590, but I would rather see a real "next-gen" card.

    ...I am, but it's making my toenails crinkle.
    Of course buying some games off the steam sale that my current rig doesn't pull doesn't help :D

    A pie. That is actually his lunch box.

    Image on the screen could be from Crysis 2. [Cue the 'but can it run......' quotes]

    Well I guess you can bend the rules a bit with this - sure we all know it's the GTX590, but you can forgive them for saying 'next gen' because it is Nvidias first multi gpu card based on their next gen Fermi architecture - so from a G80 GTX295 to a GT110 GTX590 I would accept next gen in that context.

    It could be soemthing really cool and interesting about the bridge used to control teh two gpu's, next gen lossless multi gpu - one that don't need multiple driver intro's to get 99.99% ultilisation on any game...... even in windowed mode :)

    Lol, you're far more forgiving than me when it comes to marketing, Fermi hasn't been next gen for at least 6 months, but I guess it's not aimed at people like us.

    That's on the box, not in the box
