Re: NVIDIA GTX 280 Series 55nm cards...How will they perform???
Official specs haven't been released yet. They should perform well, but in the end they will just be highly overclocked 280's. Of course, they will overclock well beyond that due to the small manufacturing process, but nothing groundbreaking here AFAIK. Good competition for the 4870X2 if it's the beast we've been led to believe. I'd be very surprised if they ended up faster then the X2, probably close or equal in some cases, but nothing more. The real benefits of these cards will come not in pure speed but lower heat/power consumption and hopefully a low price all in a reliable single GPU package.
