I don't have time to post bench marks, I'll get around to it mid next week. Overall I'm pretty happy with these cards
I was expecting a lot more noise, but its not bad at all..I would say it about the same or a little bit more than the 5870s, keep in mind that they're not in a case yet (out for powder coating)
I don't think the fans went over 60%...not sure about the temps but obviously its hot
The performance from what I could tell from the little I played was awesome....gone is the stutter in AvP and I'm able to play Metro with 4aa maxed with depth of field off and BC2 is playable @ 32xaa
It's nice to own Evga cards again, also cool to have adjustable profiles back.
I really enjoyed my 5870s the past five months...ATi have a awesome product, and by the look of things both company's futures are looking good for us gamers
I have nothing bad to say about ATi or their products, their drivers could be a little better but its good to see they're working on them frequently.
Props to ATi and NV for awesome cards....now bring on Crysis 2 and F3AR
