GeForce 3 available in Singapore?

Not according to nVidia...

Earlier this week, hardware enthusiast website OCWorkBench posted a story about an exhibition in Singapore Suntec City, which they claim not only had Leadtek Winfast GeForce 3 boards on display, but for sale. They even produced a picture, which you can view here. We were highly dubious, having heard claims quite to the contrary, that nothing would be happening until the drivers were finalised. Speaking exclusively to EuroGamer, Philip Wynn Jones, nVidia's European PR Manager said after viewing the website that "Leadtek aren't selling any boards at the moment, since the release driver isn't ready". To be absolutely crystal on this point, the driver finalisation must precede any release! The drivers should be ready "very soon in Europe." Since our discovery, OCWorkBench has updated its story to reflect that sets are not ready yet, but that the price, SGD888 (~USD507), is the amount Leadtek cards for which will retail.
