Edit: It really sucks they all they could use were P.O.S. cards to compare it to. Where is the GTX, lol?
Edit Again: Well, it looks like I will be picking up one of these cards pending the reviews of the RV670s. The thing that really concerns me is the cooling though. I am not looking to add an after-market cooler.
I just wish they would use a 8800 GTS 640. Those high resolutions is what killed its low vram predecessor. At least from what ive heard 512 MB is needed for resolutions above 1280x800. Id like to see how much faster it outperformed the 8800 GTS on higher resolutions.
Shoot, performance is great, but Heat/noise jumped out at me too. I am not a fan of single slot cooling, and this review shows some reasons why. If I can find one with a decent non reference two slot cooler, I will buy one if the price isn't too bad. Otherwsie an after market cooler is a must in my case. Hmm now I am hoping for the new GTS to kick the GT's butt for less than $100 more.
I wonder if two GT's will be better than one GTX ? Plus I wonder if all of the 3x SLI mb's come out if 3 of these puppies with be best bang for buck ? I guess the question is would 3 GT's be better than one Ultra price/FPS
