    It was known for a while already that AMD's ATI is developing a new product under codename R700. Guru3D has a nice preview of what AMD is going to launch real soon the Dual-GPU...

    Its impressive but i would much rather have a fast single card because SLI and i presume crossfire as well have many many short comings.

    Just gourgeous card , im sold. I know wich one will be my next upgrade this time :D.
    Great review as always Hilbert , very well done. The Nvidia 280GTX just got raped :banana:. I am anxiously waiting for the release of this card and counting the days.
    This is the stuff that get me really excited about new hardware. Amazing card.
    Time to let go of my old Ultras finally.

    I'm surprised 9800 gx2 wasn't tested against it.

    Let's see 2 4870X2's in crossfire :biggun:

    Seriously though if this card is anywhere near the price of the 280, Nvidia are in deep trouble in the high end market.

    The FPS graph on the Mass Effect page states the score for a GTX 260, unlike the rest (with a GTX 280). Is this a typo, or was the benchmark run with a GTX 260?

    That indeed is a 260 as the 280's review samples already where returned to NVIDIA. NV has arranged a new 280 for long term loan, so that will be updated asap.

    NO I DO NOT THINK SO - WHY DO YOU USE THE BIG IRRITATING FONTS ?

    e.g. stop doing that.

    because are available?!:)

    no seriously, maybe add a "beta" label over the becmarks or something, the finall product you said your self could be more powerfull and hell lot more power hungry.

    to avoid fast-wrong assumptions thats all.

    Ah okay, good to hear.

    The graphics front always seems to heat up when both manufacturers push out their latest and greatest. Hopefully something powerful (and cheap) enough to run Crysis with all the bells and whistles is right around the corner...
