So this adds to the cost for the GTX480 even more

Pretty much. And the rest of them will complain about a multi-GPU card and go SLI two 480s.

LOL.

LOL... So true.

Not sure why you are all having problems with multi-gpu, I have had little to no problems and have had plenty of SLI setups from nivida, and now crossfire X with dual ATI 5970's.

No problems what so ever.

Just keep up with app profiles and newest drivers and your fine.

I guess I'll pass on the GTX 480 and wait for the 500 series that has better AF, unless they somehow fix it via a driver update, which seems unlikely.

It's angle dependent unlike ATI on the 5xxx series. From what I've read you'd be hard to notice the difference anyway.

I've been doing some thinking. The Fermi is not so bad when compared to the 5870. And it seems like it would do much better in DX11. What turns me off more is the heat and power consumption. My PSU is fine, but if there is anything I hate the most it is heat.

With that being said, I am going to take the plunge and get a EVGA 480 superclocked, instead of the 5870. My GTX275 is fine for now, even though recent games like BC2, Metro and Just Cause 2 are pushing my card beyond its limits when running things on high.

Crossfire 5970"s!!!

I can't even imagine that kind of horsepower under the hood! My god man! There's nothing out there that can even make those beasts break a sweat. I bet you're looking forward to Crysis 2.

I plan on a crossfire setup myself later in the yr w/ another 5870.

It's also possible that they see the inherent flaw with too much heat being dumped back into the case. This would also cause possible hardware failures that ARE NOT the GPU, and that could lead to... I don't know... a lawsuit or two?

Smart move by XFX. Nvidia could learn a thing or two...

This ^^

For XFX to back out at this late stage, they must have had serious concerns.

It's not like they weren't going to produce 470/480's, as the article says, they were, up until very recently.
