Unless nVidia gave 'em a newer beta set with a "fix" for the 3.40 patch.

Besides which, I'm calling "bullspit!" on this story since no one else has been able to replicate it and in fact others have had a 13-15% score decrease on a 5700 Ultra using the 52.16 & 52.70 drivers.

I think FUDo did screw up and then got all excited and jumped the gun and posted the story a bit prematurely and is gonna be writing a tiny little retraction soon.

As a result they seem to have over-engineered in some aspects creating a power-hungry monster which is going to be very expensive for them to manufacture. We have a beautifully balanced piece of hardware that beats them on pure performance, cost, scalability, future mobile relevance, etc. That's all because they didn't know what to aim at."
