Default Re: So I got second GTX280

Much like the 8800GTX was faster than a 8800GT/GTS, I think the 280GTX is going to be faster than the die shrink. The main problem for nVidia with the 280GTX is the die size and how much it costs to produce, it is without question faster than a 4870 (I have owned 2 4870s and now 2 280GTXs). With the price of a 280GTX only @ 100 bucks more than a 4870, it is the better buy at the moment IMO. What you will most likely see with the refresh is a smaller chip that is cheaper to produce but not necessarily faster.
