Default Re: 285 upgrade to 580: benchmarking

I made the same jump. I wish I had benchmarked Crysis Warhead on my 285s before I swapped them out last night. With everything set to "Enthusiast" and no AA, I remember my 285s struggling to stay in the teens for FPS. With the 580s an 8x AA, the lowest I've seen so far is 30 FPS, usually they stayed above 40 FPS, often hitting 50 FPS. Now granted, that's only with about half hour of play under the belt, but still... 50 FPS in Crysis with everything cranked! And with only two cards and air cooling!

Damn I sound like a fanboy...
