TBH I am NOT the expert on GPUs. SKYMTL is.I didnt know it was rumored to be a dual GPU. That is good to know - thanks!
wait wasnt the 5890 supposed to be a single gpu board unit? dual gpu we have 5970
That was the point of my previous Post....and in some cases the 470 finished ahead of the 5870 at that same Res.....C) The 15% performance increase is based off of the combination of DX9 / DX10 AND DX11 games. If you single out DX11 performance at the resolutions most people play at (1680 and 1920) the GTX 480 simply eats the HD 5870 alive, especially when it comes to minimum framerates. Seriously, what fool buys a DX11 card and cares about DX9 performance when 99.99% of today's $200 GPUs don't have an issue in DX9 High Quality?
No shit...... I watch the news every day and can never figure why there is so much hate in the world but then theirs a video card launch and it all makes senseI've stayed out of this conversation for a while simply because some of the comments boggle my mind. For the vast majority of the time over the next few days, I won't be commenting in this thread or in the other GTX 480 threads simply because I believe these products have brought out the worst in everyone. Period.
