Thanks ^

btw Firingsquad preview is up :
http://firingsquad.com/hardware/nvid...0_performance/

i'm waiting for the xbitlabs review. IMO xbit & FS are ones of the most decent review sites when it comes to new GPUs.

That's still unplayable. With an average of 32FPS at the timedemo, the final battle drops to 9-10fps. You need an average of above 40fps for the final battle to remain playable. I succeeded at doing that by dropping the resolution to 1440x900...

I think allot here are forgetting the CRAP ATi drivers....I KNOW - I to this day still have a X2 on my desk....an utterly crap card. It may not be the cards fault but the drivers....All i know is that in a game like EVE Online that i play allot i get HALF the fps as an GTS/512....
I will NEVER spend my money on an ATI card again before i see tests in not "common" games. And thats FINAL!

But sure - the new cards maybe isane - if they are i will try them. Like i did the X2. But right now i'm 98% sure i will be sorry.

Sure this may be a rant, but its from personal experience!

BAHHHHH!

That FiringSquad article is actually quite positive (perhaps more so for the 260 than the 280), except for the bit on page 5 about apparent heat sensitivity. For me, that's a bit of a red flag...
