Interesting. I had a similar manual with my 560 Ti, but I have never seen a site actually post the manual.

I wish they specified the exact cases that got them the fake numbers they have there, averaging like 15-20% faster than the 7970 in "nvidias own tests" when reality is its ~5% and mostly in nv-centric games.

The best part about that Physx marketing crap is the cool new games that use physx, like... chinese game called QQ Dance 2! I can't wait!

You'd think they'd be too embarassed to even put that in there...

I like the fact, that they say to install drivers, and don't touch them, so it will be even, but on at least 2 occasions, they tell you to disable 2 things in AMD's driver. LOL

What happened to untouched drivers?
