Meh, what a bad series of decisions by nVidia. I know that a company like that, always having to feed today's profits into tomorrow's engineering... is not in good shape to meet a major recall problem like this. Not being really straightforward about investigating their own problems and fessing up (let alone writing a BIOS to lower the clock speeds down to a point where the thermal load isn't so bad, or some other aftermarket solution besides running fans constantly) is a really bad policy decision.
I just hope it doesn't ruin the company, ATi / AMD need real competition, and nobody else has the technology to do that.
Still, Nvidia is one of the few market entities that still supports lunix. Will totally suck if they bellyroll over this.
