Remember, we are not looking at minor 5% to 10% increases, but quite significant ones, ranging from 20% to over 50%.

Wow, I didn't expect any previews this early.

Performance looks promising so far, though I'm more interested in compatibility and "smoothness".

Those 4870x2 scores seem a bit off - especially after reading the guru3d preview. :wtf: Going to wait for Hardocp's review.

Hardocp strikes again with an excellent review! :thumbsup: Anyone else think that it was a pretty dumb decision of nvidia to go with 448-bit gddr3? These cards should be the best cards for running 2560x1600 type of resolutions and the memory bandwidth of this card is just not up for it.

Maybe it will best it in a month, but I would not bet on it.

Any micro stuttering issues w/ those 295 like 9800 GX2?

Maybe I should trust hardocp but their results seem to vary greatly from all the other benchmarks I've seen.

That's because some settings suit one card better than the other. HardOCP eliminates this by using the highest playable settings of each game on each card. This way you get a much more realistic picture of what kind of a gaming experience you'll get with each card. ;)
