Its hard to imagine that the gtx 280 would perform that well at 1920x1200 without sli which is $1300 to compete or barely outperform the $860 gx2 sli combo. Now if this is with AA turned on then we might have a different picture but if the drivers dont fix the performance of the gtx280 then I see no reason to waste the money on it...lets pray that ati will pull something off for the enthusiasts, otherwise we might as well stick to the last gen hardware.

I'm pretty sure the 34 fps mentioned in the article are at 4xAA and the Maxishine review is 0xAA. Turn on the AA to 4 and that 46 FPS produced by the gx2's will fall, hard.

After reading every post on all 7 pages I realize that we are all lame ass noobs. I mean we do this every single time a new card come on the market, seriously ever time lol. We should all just shut up and ignore every video card thread untill the damn thing is released. At that point we can really get into it with each other, and get all the fanboys riled up and screaming lol.

My 2 cents is that after WHQL drivers are released we will see some crazy performance increase. Maybe not enough to warrant an upgrade from a GX2, but I think it will still be a beast for a single GPU card.

I'd say "no", but I usually wait two full graphics generations (half-gens like the HD2k/3k and GeForce 8/9 series count as one) before I upgrade.

so you guys are saying getting 34fps out of a single card running 1600x1200 with 4xAA in Crysis on High isnt impressive?

your expectations are way too high.

It's not that it's not impressive it's that it is not conclusive. I was expecting them to run "Very High" settings. What if at those settings the FPS take a big dive even without AA on?

The point of a benchmark is to run on all bells and whistles and see what the result is - what they're doing seems like finding the sweet spot where it performs the best compared to other cards.

Anyway considering the little I've seen so far I don't think this card should cost more than $500. It's not that big of a leap over the previous generation and it will cost you in the long run with the power it consumes and the heat it releases.

The reported power consumption of this card at load is very much near many other video cards out now, so no, there will be no $30 greater bill a month...unless you were running your card at full load 24/7 for 30 days (~$35 @ $0.2/kW), but then that would be a drop in the bucket compared to the AC costs you gotta run to keep from baking .

And theres your 70 MHz OC without phase.

Why dont you save your whining until after the cards are released and more indepth reviews are done, eh? Thus ends my implied shaddup (until after monday) noob.
epic fail. for the most part he was being sarcastic
