    Comment Thread for GTX 480 and GTX 470 Reviews

    ?????????? Hello? The ''advantages and disadvantages'' make sense in relation to what? What excuses? ''Speculation about clock speeds'' - wheres the speculation? The clock speeds were released to the public along with the cards 6 mos ago. If your speaking from a competitive gamers...

    Monster, i don't feel you really grasped Sideeffect's statment. Why not address that! It was about clock speeds/ timing of release. Valid point he made. Why not actually address that point!

    Comment Thread for GTX 480 and GTX 470 Reviews

    Thanks - good idea! Will give it a try. HWC often does comparisons of manufacturer releases (re the overvoltable ASUS 5870) against competitive cards as they are released. I enjoy those types of reviews and look forward to them re the 480 as cards are released over the next couple of months.

    Comment Thread for GTX 480 and GTX 470 Reviews

    Well, I have been skeptical that driver updates will materially improve performance. Simply b/c of all the hardware problems and delays, etc., NV seems to have had plenty of time to optimize the drivers for these new cards. I can't imagine that they did not take full advantage of this delay...

    Agree! That is really my point of view as well.

    Robc: Don't really get your assessment. There are obvious fanbois and then there are ppl who are trying to be objective. Some ppl are labelling other for simply not being overly impressed with the test results of these new cards.

    I didnt know it was rumored to be a dual GPU. That is good to know - thanks!

    I guess it might be hard not to look fanboiish to some. But that is why I provided the info that I run cards from both companies. Just saying these particular cards are not for me at this time. I will wait and see over the next couple months.

    I dont know where I was comparing a 'dual GPU' to a single GPU. I was speaking about a potential 5890/ even the 2gb 5870 to the 480. Dont know where duals come in.

    Yes, well, the numbers to vary somewhat depending on the review you read. Bottom line is an approx avt performance of around 15% across the board. In some games at some setting the 480 stomped on the 5870. In others it was a little behind. Bottom line, no performance marvel here. If you want to...

    Comment Thread for GTX 480 and GTX 470 Reviews

    Smart comment! It's easy to label someone a fanboi. Plz try to be a little more creative than that! Actually, I have two gaming rigs. One with 2x 285s and the other with an ATI set-up. Was looking to buy one or two of the new fermi cards, but for me, for such marginal performance increase I...

    Comment Thread for GTX 480 and GTX 470 Reviews

    I'd also like to see if this rumored 5890 comes out to match this release. There are lots of potential option over the next few months for us all. It is significant to me that until this new release, efficiency was on the increase; now, it has done a 180. I am pretty sure ATI can match such a...

    Geez, I can't believe they actually managed to catch the first person on camera whilst they were in the process of making the first pre-order in N. America for a GTX480 (at a price to be determined on purchase date). I guess noone told him about the 1bln more transistors NV used to get that...

    Comment Thread for GTX 480 and GTX 470 Reviews

    This is a very well thought out response - to us ATI ppl? I know, they were raped. Geez, with that whopping 15% avg performance increase across the board with the endless delays under the guise of developing testallation performance, and the wonderful heat and noise issue. Raped indeed. I might...
