Not impressed at all... Very poor showing in Crysis VH... :( I will still probably get the card, but we'll have to wait for another generation until VH Crysis. I don't think the R700 will do it...

:thumbdwn: Looks like I'll be downgrading in a couple games...I just hope the performance gets better, not much time to mess around with only 15 days remaining in stepup.

Erm..wth happened with CoD4..That is one HELL of a difference in performance...and the price on GX2 is way cheaper...

The results are all over the place...i am hoping its a driver related issue.

If not..once the GTX280/260 comes out...i will purchase a GX2 since the price on that will drop alot..

Quad SLI wins most of the time over 280 SLI, keeps getting worse...

will wait and see how that ati card performs, if its also close to GTX 280. I'm going to buy GX2.

Yup I think so.

I will end up keeping my GX2's and pass on these new cards for awhile as I cannot run TRI SLI in my rig with my ARC-1231ML installed.

Those results seem more realistic...min fps results are always handy.

Score are perfectly normal, GX2 have higher clocked shaders and 16 more shader procesors again GTX 280, i dont know what you expected guys :) and i hope new drivers improve fps, like they always did.

Anand has an article http://anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=3334

Looks pretty solid and informative. Can't say I'm surprised at the numbers (cept for crysis)

The GTX260 seems like a good bet on H review

As soon as I saw that Guru 3D benched Crysis in "medium" settings I stopped reading. Retards. This is getting rediculous! Do people just not know that Crysis has "very high" settings? What is up with the review world? It's mind boggling! ONLY BENCH CRYSIS IN VERY HIGH!!!!!!!! For the love of all that's good and holy!

Also chrisRay mention that with SLI they are no more hitches and micro stuttering with GTXes :)

From what I can tell so far the Quad GX2's go toe to toe with GTX280's in SLI, on most cases.

I have that and not really worth upgrading atm. Plus the fact that you can get the Quad setup much cheaper that 2x GTX280's if they are going for $649.

If I only had 8800GTX or 8800GTX Ulta's then I might upgrade, but they Ultra's are still dang nice cards and can handle everything out there just fine.

Bottom line I think if these cards are going for $649 price range than that's a big "Fail".

That would be $1,947 plus Tax/Shipping for a TRI-SLI setup !! say nothing of the PSU required to run that and the Rig that would be need to feed those babies.

At the Egg $979.98 for Quad SLI.
