How can you be so naive to think that better drivers will not give the GTX 280 a performance boost? I mean really? and as for overclocking you obviously have not even bothered to research it because the 280 overclocks great.

You GX2 guys who already plunked down all that you could spend are just pissed off that a better single card solution is on the market and you should have waited just a bit longer before spending your $$$. I have seen this same thing happen time and time again with previous GX2 cards and its always the same.


Give me a single card with a true 1gb of vram and a big bus to go along with it and watch that card sing at high resolutions with high amounts of AA and AF and at the same time watch your GX2 become completely crippled under the same settings.

I'm not pissed off. I'm getting a 280 for 30 bucks

Yeah I know, remember I encouraged you to make that choice.

Im just talking about the guys who are in complete and utter denial about the whole thing and just automatically assume that the GTX 280 will not get any better on newer drivers.

Man I wish ATI's new cards and the GTX 260 would hurry up because its getting harder and harder to hang onto my trusty 8800GT. LOL.

As long as Crossfire is limited by one form of AFR, I won't be investing in it. Show me something like WiC on the DX10 path scaling on it well @ 1920x and up with AA active.

I think its you that are pissed of that your GTX 280 are slower than 9800GX2 and it don't OC any god look at Bjorn 3d Review of it.
My 9800GX2 runs 730Mhz on the core a
9800GX2 OC VS a 280GTX OC The 9800GX2 will win the tests even more

And i have not used my last $$$ on my 9800GX2 i had ordered a 280 but canceled it when the reviews came out.

Im not mad, I have the better card so Keep telling yourself that.


This is what happens when your precious GX2 with its crippled bus and ram runs out of steam.





Expect to see a lot more of this in future titles. Enjoy your GX2 and all of its micro stutters chump.

Yeah the 280's are definitely not using their full potential at ALL !!

There's NO way the Gx2 with it's crippled 256-bit bus can keep up to the
512-bit bus and 1Gb of ram of the 280.. (that's literally 2x as much memory as the Gx2) !!


There's just NO way it'll keep up.. anyone who thinks otherwise is just
fooling themselves because they're jealous of all these 280's..

Exactly, I cannot help though but to get a kick out of some of these GX2 fanbois who are so butt hurt about the whole thing. They should have waited. LOL.
