Check-out this link about G550:

I don't want to start more speculation, but "a couple of weeks after CEBIT" would be like next week?

From the pockets of thousands of eager Matrox fans can be heard the sound of 'Money waiting to be burnt' http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

Sorry I digress, but did Electic receive/publish answers to their Matrox interview .

Hehe. www.reactorcritical.com/cgi-bin/news.cgi?templ=archive.http&mintime=&maxtime=#l672 (http://www.reactorcritical.com/cgi-bin/news.cgi?templ=archive.http&mintime=&maxtime=#l672) and choose the link for the Pyramid 3d where xbitlabs got its info is the biggest joke. They pick up all kinds of rumors including the ridiculous Pyramid 3D auction in which they spout the wonderful features such as bumpmapping and trilinear filtering. What good is a card that has X advanced features if it was never produced and those features are used by other manufacturers as well? Not to mention they got taken by the COndor II picture. (no jab intended at this board) and countless others.

Yes, they show a very critical reaction to rumours.

I know, just wanted to point out that I doubt the authenticity of that news http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif

Ah, but as it's Matrox' Matrix Skinning, then isn't it by default also Matrox Skinning? http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

Maybe the G550 is covered in some sort of bio-mechanic skin (like whassername-big-boss-woman-type-person from the Borg gave Data in 'First Contact')

These are the same folks that posted THIS (http://www.reactorcritical.com/cgi-bin/news.cgi?templ=archive.http&mintime=&maxtime=#l672) as "breaking" news :P

You sure it isn't more like Major Motoko Kusanagi's skin in "Ghost in the Shell"?
