This is absolutely the worst argument. In the future? In 6-8 months, nobody will be buying these cards, and as the tech progresses, the same amount of power will be way less money.

There is no future-proofing in the GPU market -- you buy for the moment.

take a closer look, they posted max playable settings for each card. 60fps is cake.

Indeed, there is usually a 3 month window for a product to get get the best price v performance (at given res), then things change.

You can't compare clockspeeds with ATI and Nvidia.

And before you claim that 'by the time tessellation makes a significant difference, something else better will be out' that doesn't mean these cards won't suddenly stop being useful. Heck, the 9800GX2 can still play most games on their highest settings and it's 3+ years old.
How does it do better in Metro 2033? NvidiAvsAMD 63vs66 97vs108 :O

It was pretty obvious AMD got the better of that review.

Look at the end here, where AMD dives NVIDIA thrives and vice versa.

maybe nvidia should stop advertising that they got the fastest gpu card in the world?
