EDIT: how do you embed vids so you can pley em in my post? please pm me

The only thing that ran decent was the 3Dmark and heaven benchmarks, all of the games that you can actually play ran like crap.
^ Yeah i was thinking the same thing....and on the other review by this guy he was getting like 10-30 fps in Batman with those 3 monitors....This card is definately faster than the 580, but it's not the performance leap many of us were looking for. Still is a pretty good card though...I just sold my Classifieds and bought a GT 520 for $40.00 biggrin.gif (I'm not an obssessed gamer, I can wait thumb.gif)...I'm going to wait it out for Kepler and get the 570 equivalent.

^ I can't wait for the day when AMD or Nvidia gives us a single GPU that can max games @ 1600p and above.thumb.gif

Hmm, the only games that i've seen to be truly ridiculous at 2560x1600 (testing by disabling SLI) were metro 2033 and Witcher 2. Even sli is sluggish with uber sampling.

I'll test it on 7970 oc'ed and report back smile.gif(tomorrow)

Well that's how I see it, time will tell.


It's the drivers...AMD go for higher FPS but more microstutter (Unless you have TriFire) whereas nVidia go for no microstutter.

Get a 570, costs less than a 580 by a fair margin and is practically the same speed when OCed. I have my 470 at HD6970 levels of performance on the stock cooler.

How long does it usually take for non ref to come like the msi lightnings? Should I just grab a ref one?
