    Small typo in the conclusion, 'GXT 580'

    Card looks decent, maybe finally nvidia will be forced to reduce the prices of the 580.

    Its not bad, but at the price of $550 US only to be marginally better than the 580 in the mainstream DX11 games, is meh... Im sure it will improve with driver support down the road, which is why I dont like these kinds of reviews the day of launch...

    i disagree, amd's current pricing isn't aggressive enough for nvidia to consider doing that. had it been 500$ or lower, then absolutely

    useless release tbh, i only see one point to this and that's giving consumers an alternative to the gtx 580. 7970 is somewhat stronger but not by much. still struggles to run crysis1, metro, bf3 maxed

    as for the performance improving with new drivers, lol :) good one
    +6% here until 2013 prolly at best with AMD/CCC

    Yeah the main titles i was most curious about, the 7970 was BARELY faster than the 580... i mean 4 fps gain in BF3? thats kinda sad IMO.
