Pictures of a variety of GTX 470/480 packaging and boxes have been leaked online since Cebit 2010. Curiously, all these boxes have been pictured as closed. Fudzilla reports that while the boxes do exist, they are, in fact, empty.

With just over 10 days to go to the big GTX 400 series “release”, Nvidia have apparently still not shipped enough cards to the AIB partners.

With just over 10 days to go to the big GTX 400 series “release”, Nvidia
have apparently still not shipped enough cards to the AIB partners.

The chances of having any thing more than a few samples at the official release are looking very slim, to say the list. Final specifications, price and other detailed information are still lacking, even this close to launch. Nvidia have enforced stringent policing of GTX 400 information, yet some information has still leaked on to the internet, inevitably. Still, Nvidia have been fairly successful in withholding much information. Unfortunately for Nvidia, such secrecy has only led to rumours getting more gloomy as the days go by.

It remains to be seen what kind of launch Nvidia can manage for 26th March, though a paper launch is looking most likely. If that does happen, the next question will be – when can retail availability be expected? At least, we will know most things to there is to know about GTX 400 on 26th March, at long last.
