    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lrh-BhxtxA4

    Nvidia has finally released the revision to their previous flagship card, the GTX 480...in this case the EVGA GTX 580, and I am privileged to do this unboxing for you.
    Please enjoy this video...my first in over a month due to a major family issue that came up.

    Very nice unboxing - I have to admit that 480's heatpipes kinda grew on me, too...

    Thanks fellas!
    The review is gonna be a bit delayed...like an idiot I completely bricked both cards with a bad BIOS flash.
    I thought it was impossible to do if one had a spare card handy, but it happened to me.
    Be careful, or just plain do not flash the BIOS if it is not recommended.

    Yeah apparently they're gonna try and revive them.
    Nobody there has ever heard of a card not being able to be re-flashed.
    They're toast...not even visible under nvflash --list
    *complete facepalm*
