Personally I'll take the slow and incremental improvements over none at all. I've tried the ETQW demo and it is not bad but as an alternative it feels 3 years old.

On a side not:
Ouch, not to rub salt in the wound but even firing squad has trouble spinning that as a good result for AMD. So much for the numerous comments in these forums how r600 was going to be the "real" dx10 card and early adopters of 8800's were going to have regrets. As one of those early adopters I now feel I have the right to gloat but at the same time mourn the lack of competition.

agree. i love my 8800 not for its dx 10 but for its speed, memoery size which in games helps a lot, its quietness, reliability, runs cool etc.

Unless you have the liquid cooled version something isn't right. A 6800gt wide open should run cooler than a 8800 at idle.

Lol, that made me chuckle. My 6800gs agp version would idle at 55C and run full load at 91C, after oc it would make its way over 100C :o . So i really hope that a 8800 doesn't run at 100C at idle or i could use it as a heater in the winter.
