But this will be a home run for nV, no doubt. Best in class features and now also very efficient.
Personally, I don't care about the TDP of a desktop card. What matters are features and performance and I'm not happy with the Surround performance. Features on the other hand are brilliant. Maybe things will change once 4GB models with the reference cooler are available, otherwise I'm not interested at all in this card. 2GB is a joke!
Something doesn't add up here for me. It doesn't seem like a no-compromise-high-end offering
I feel the same way too now. I feel like NVIDIA is holding out on us purely because they know they only need to do so much for now to compete with AMD, and are avoiding playing their best cards until the future. I want the rumored big Kepler.
