Agreed. I bought superclock cards last time around, and I had to put them down to stock speed just keep them from overheating. The performance difference was negligible.

Some nice scaling there







SLI profile for CIV 5 seems to be broken still.

It blows my mind that reviewers still, still, often don't bench Crysis with max settings in DX10. I simply don't understand the reasoning behind it. I mean, whatever, there are better benchmarks at this point, but, seriously?

It's the same as 4AA and 8AA

Seriously, some of these cards are on the 100's digits in same games with 4AA and 16AF

Crank up the eye candy FFS. Some of us prefer better visuals to high frames.

indeed, running tests with something like 4xSSAA and it would be golden.
