Apparently, from what I have read, the reviews are coming out late at night, about 8:00-10:00, can't wait.

If nothing else, and if the GTX 480 truly sucks, it sure does have a pretty cooler.

Heres hoping for a sub $300 5850!!!!

The Leadtek ones look bad-ass with the orange and all...

Here's my hoping for a free HD 5870 from L1qu1d
or a $260-$280 HD 5850...

Seems like a good card, drivers should really push this card further

Starting from the bottom up, we would say the least relevant video card is the GeForce GTX 470. In all our gameplay testing today, not once did the GeForce GTX 470 provide a superior gameplay experience compared to the Radeon HD 5850, even in Metro 2033. In fact, performance was very close between both video cards, and in some cases the Radeon HD 5850 proved to provide faster framerates. Looking strictly at performance, these video cards are equal.

I don't have high hopes for the drivers, they have had plenty of time already to deal with drivers and nVidia release drivers are always better than ATI release drivers.

The only thing I can tell is that the Hexus benchmarks were B.S. Not sure how I feel about these cards.

Sorry, doesn't matter anyway as it was pulled within a minute.

The Techpowerup review shows the 480 beating the 5870 in 2033 by quite a bit.
From this single review I have gathered that;
1. Fermi is going to be quite a future-proof card
2. It's going to be hot (good for those sub-0* winters)
3. And at least your not running a 4870x2

On to the next...

We're lucky to have a sub-10*C winter :lol:

Moving where you are :ouch:  We're lucky to see +1* in January here.

Well, we get 40*+ weather here. Your skin almost starts pealing :D

Radeon 5970 may be a dual-chip card but:

5970 runs cooler
5970 is more silent
5970 has a lower power consumption
5970 is faster than GTX480

GTX480=epic fail

Got to agree mafi.

Where are all the nvidia fanboys who said the 480 shouldn't be compared to the 5970? Well it's closer to the 5970 than it is the 5870...too bad it's all the bad stuff it's closer at. :D 
March 27, 2010 12:17:21 AM

Still graving this, sellin the xfx 5870 and grabbin a 5970 for my secondary

Like heavy tessellation, something that is DX11's 'huge deal'. Not promoting heat and upping your electric bill by 100%, but Fermi is beating the competition where DX11 matters.

Look at the upside - remember that easy bake oven you had when you was a kid? Well now you can play games faster than the competition and bake brownies. Who in the hell doesn't like brownies?


...and games.

I don't pay electric, it's included haha

Yeah the GTX 480 isn't a bad card, but if I were you L1qu1d I'd go with the 5970 if you are set on the best, because it is.

Noisy fan, even on light 3D loads = don't want

Radeon wins.
March 27, 2010 2:23:26 AM

Now lets see ATI release what they've had six months to design, maybe a 5890? I'm sure this will happen soon and it won't take much to beat nVidia's poor lead in performance.

For the GTX480 to suit its 6 month wait it would have to be competing with the 5970 not the 5870. No thank you nVidia.
