Here is a much better review that compares P67 8x8x vs. P67 16x16x via NF200 chipset

Matrix...reminds me of the movie Commando.

But when you can nab (as stated multiple times) an MSI Lightning TFIII instead...

I posted that link to show that there's very little difference in x8 x8 vs x16 x16.

Tom's review also supports that P67 + NF200 is better:

I don't get this card (or any of Asus's 3-slot designs really). Like has been said, why wouldn't you just get a Lightning?

Have any scaling reviews with surround resolutions besides the recent [H]? 5760x1200 7680x1600?

With only 1.5GB VRAM I doubt this card would be the best choice

I agree although check out this guy's tri-sli 1.5GB 580s:

He has a bunch of other games being played at that res too. I noticed he doesn't use any AA in the game settings though. It's not that bad on a 30". Do you think 2xAA on 1080P is worse or better than 0xAA on 1600P? [H] has said you can't tell the difference beyond 4xAA at 1600P.

I reach 1700mb of vram usage in crysis warhead at 1080p, so the limit isn't too hard to hit. Yes 1.5gb might work at those resolutions, but in my opinion, with the amount of money you're spending on cards, go 3gb and not have to worry about that ever.

What level of AA and did you kill Windows Aero?

How does Windows Aero effect vram? I barely see any usage when nothing is up.
