Default Is NVIDIA Planning a Kepler Recall?

In recent weeks, there has been a rampant rumor going around that NVIDIA is set to (or at least contemplating a) recall all Kepler-based graphics cards sold-to-date due to a discovered fatal flaw. At the moment, NVIDIA is keeping mum on things, except to say that there is "no truth to this" - but as anyone who works with press relations can definitely attest, companies are only going to tell you what they want to tell you, unless they are forced to tell you different.

Update: Multiple NVIDIA representatives on Facebook have shown their absolute disgust for this rumor, when otherwise they'd usually shun it as much as possible if it was in fact true. The likeliness of this rumor being proven true seems awfully slim at this point.

Cool!
Seems someone specifically started the rumor to keep potential buyers away from Nvidia and to come towards the other one!??
