Yup I think so.

I will end up keeping my GX2's and pass on these new cards for awhile as I cannot run TRI SLI in my rig with my ARC-1231ML installed.

Anand has an article http://anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=3334

Looks pretty solid and informative. Can't say I'm surprised at the numbers (cept for crysis)

The GTX260 seems like a good bet on H review

As soon as I saw that Guru 3D benched Crysis in "medium" settings I stopped reading. Retards. This is getting rediculous! Do people just not know that Crysis has "very high" settings? What is up with the review world? It's mind boggling! ONLY BENCH CRYSIS IN VERY HIGH!!!!!!!! For the love of all that's good and holy!

From what I can tell so far the Quad GX2's go toe to toe with GTX280's in SLI, on most cases.

I have that and not really worth upgrading atm. Plus the fact that you can get the Quad setup much cheaper that 2x GTX280's if they are going for $649.

If I only had 8800GTX or 8800GTX Ulta's then I might upgrade, but they Ultra's are still dang nice cards and can handle everything out there just fine.

Bottom line I think if these cards are going for $649 price range than that's a big "Fail".

That would be $1,947 plus Tax/Shipping for a TRI-SLI setup !! say nothing of the PSU required to run that and the Rig that would be need to feed those babies.

At the Egg $979.98 for Quad SLI.
