    The card is good, lower consumption than GTX480 while delivering more performance. Still they didn't break the HD 5970, a card released a year ago.

    I can't help but wonder if AMD is delaying launch in order to tune their cards to respond to nvidia offerings. I think it's reasonable to believe the HD 6950 will be just a tad slower than GTX 580 while the 6970 a tad faster.

    Worst case they will both be slower and we will see the same strategy that was applied with the HD 4000 series (price wars). The dual GPU from ATI will surely beat the GTX 580, my question is will nvidia be capable of releasing a dual GPU now that they managed to bring down the power consumption?

    So it ended up not having the 128 texture units a lot of rumours stated. Oh well that kinda sucks. Was hoping it did have them. That would have given this card that extra bit of punch if needed to not be bagged on so much.

    Nice card but looks like I'm keeping my 480's. Nothing here to make me go through the pains of selling my cards.

    If you don't have a GTX 480 though...grab the GTX 580 for sure.

    Price is also a disapointing. It's too much for 15-20% more performance.

    Well that's my xmas present sorted. Quieter than my existing card and 50%-100% performance increase as well, with the games I have @ 1900x1200. It was what I had hoped the gtx480 was going to be, still, better late than never.

    I'll wait a month for to see what 3rd party offer cooling/OC'ing wise then bite the bullet

    Thats right and most people are forgetting how well fermi scales to performance with an overclock. Clock a GTX 480 to GTX 580 speeds and the GTX 580 will look even less impressive than it already does.

    Ok so if the gtx 580 is out. wtf else is nvidia gonna launch? Even if the HD6 is just an update it so far has opened a can of performance. How much can a rebranding of gtx 4 fermi do if the gtx 580 is only that much faster?????? Nvidia is really just gonna launch just the gtx 580?. It just feels like nvidia is playing catch up like ati did with the hd 2xxx and hd3xxx series and didnt until hd 4xxx series.

    lol, and i was think the rate you kill the cards under LN2 was in the good shape...

    But this make me think, yes, i m really impatient to see the first result under LN2 with this card.. the 480 was overclock and scale nicely, i really ask me what can bring this "optimised/tweaked" version.

    There are dark rumours circulating on the web that Nvidia will somehow manage to launch a dual card gpu based on this Fermi refresh...

    Not to mention the confirmed GTX 570 and 560.

    there is a rumor about 560gtx and 570gtx., but judging by 580gtx performance its not gonna be something special..


    edit: h83 beat me to it :)

    Thnx for all the info. Ill just stick to my HD 5770.To me right now nvidia is the fail to me. Im not impressed and really am quite feeling underwhelmed. Since the HD 6870 came out the only card logically faster that is worth the price is a GTX 480. The price of the hd 5850/70 is way too high still when the hd 6870 is just about as fast. Im just trying to guage and plan upgrades for feb.

    I thought I was going to end up regretting my decision last month to get this card even though I got a good price. I guess not. (My 5870 was faulty I'm pretty sure as I'm getting better performance now than when I had it though it didn't crash or overheat) I'm hoping nVidia's next generation takes more cues from the GTX 460 with efficiency and performance than this. Hopefully the transition away from the current architecture for both AMD and nVidia will help that happen with both of their parts.

    I needed hipro's cold bios to get anything over 980-1000(ln2) with 480, vgpu @1.21v only.I do hope its ok without any ram or clock slow downs,i think if only dice np?
    I have no time to fill dewar but will have 1 card on dice first thing it gets here,but will have backup card if i need it.:)
    I need to see if i can use nhibitor to unlock some more volts in bios,looks like 1.13v max with NI.

    Very good result , less power draw , better temps , low noise.

    I just expected like 10% more performance.

    But I think its fine , will fight very good against HD6970.

    10.7 drivers .... bc2 cfx is a little bit faster of that normally.... ( on this review, number reported are with 10.7 without CAP, this driver was really problematic with BC2 untill they release a fixed cap )

    Looking how they have tweak the 480, i believe things should go better... ofc for cold boot, that's another story, logically it should be fine but impossible to say without more report... as for voltage ... i believe the hard mod are the same of what can be done on the GTX480.
