    Smart, or devious, same thing.

    Test was easy, clues where all over the page you where looking at. Or googled MSI vga before I opened the link.
    I like my MSI products, have 2 GTX275 TwinFrozer's.

    The GTX480 is a new GPU. Fermi is a new architecture that spans GPUs and GPGPUs


    Thanks for the post, Fx I win a 480

    Look at it this way, if they get it from you for this competition you have a chance to win a Grapphicscard, even if its a small chance its still bigger than the chance of winning something if they buy your data from "insert criminal organization of choice".

    Anyway, entered, in the off chance that I should win, will the 5870 winner from the gpuz competition be willing to trade prizes?

    Actually MSI won't ask about the heatpipe diameter if they were using the thinner

    I guess I screwd up the 1st answer - checked the new gpu instead of the next gen cuda architechture. No 480 for me (

    I'm not convinced that the answer to the first is CUDA. Going by MSI's own promotional material, which you'd think their marketing dept would be consulting, they're referring to it as a new GPU core. The first question is a little arse anyway, because it's so damn ambiguous.

    GF100 is the gpu. Fermi is a new arcitecture ( which spans multiple gpus; ie Telsa , Quadro )

    I do believe the contest ends May 1st with the drawing(s) shortly after. They'll more than likely contact the winnner(s) by email.

    That may be technically correct, but even so the poll response doesn't match up - the only architecture option specifically references CUDA, and of course Fermi is not CUDA-only. In addition, all of MSI's references throughout their website and promo material that I've seen consistently refer to Fermi as "next-generation GPU core" or words to that effect.

    I'll certainly agree the question is terribly worded, but I'm fairly sure that "GPU core" is what whoever drew it up had in mind.
