NVIDIA continues to tease, sends us a crowbar

Remember when NVIDIA updated their Facebook page with "It's Coming..." and a picture that you had little chance of learning its origin?  Well the marketing team is at again, this time sending over a crowbar.  No, seriously.

"For Use in Case of Zombies Or...<NVIDIA LOGO>".  So either something BIG is coming later that I am going to need to open with said crowbar or maybe NVIDIA is partnering with Valve to announce Half-Life 3.  That second guess is just wishful thinking, sorry.

If nothing else I guess we'll thank NVIDIA for the additional weapon for the eventual zombie apocalypse until such time as they sit fit to clue me in on the joke.

Happy Monday!

I say it's to open the crate when the next shipment of GTX 680's arrive. hehehe

I suspect it has nothing to do with Half Life 3, considering Newell is only now even referring to the game at all (and then, only in a coded reference to 'Richochet 2':

It's probably to beat off the repo-men after taking out a second mortgage on your home to buy the up-coming 690.

Half-Life does come to mind when you see a crowbar!

With so little GTX680 in stock I don't believe it's GTX690 that is coming. Smarter move would be introducing GTX670 (Ti or whatever) as they could probably make more money on them. But this is nvidia (management), "smart moves" are not always their priority.

Knowing Jensen I'll say it's a tool to dismantling bridges.

Black Crowbar.... Could be Half Life related though as a guess – more to do with the mod Black Mesa than Half Life 3 as it is due for release very soon.
