As is customary with any big GPU release, NVIDIA’s partners have their own interpretation of the new Kepler based GPU up and ready to go. Asus, Gainward and Palit already have theirs on shelves and ready to go (not on local shelves, sadly). There’s not much to differentiate these products from one another sadly, as the first wave of GPU releases are usually just reference designs with a few minor tweaks in them (which usually means different coolers and designs). Nevertheless, if you’re the sort of person that wants to be the first one to own NVIDIA’s latest and greatest, you can always just hit online electronic stores overseas, as long as you’re prepared to shell out $499 bucks for the privilege (without shipping and handling, obviously).
