Well, that wasnâ€™t anywhere near as exciting as I had hoped. Spec wise, it seemed extremely possible that we could expect an increase in performance from the GTX 280, but clearly that didnâ€™t happen. I donâ€™t doubt for a second over the coming months NVIDIA will release new drivers that increase the performance of the new GTX 200 series of cards, but this isnâ€™t it.
We will be keeping up with the performance of the GTX 280 and the driver development over the coming months to see what NVIDIA pull out of the hat. While I would normally write some long winded final thoughts about the drivers, Iâ€™m going to wrap it up quickly because I just got word that the NDA for the HD 4850 has been bought forward.
So letâ€™s wrap this up nice and quick. The GTX 280 is still disappointing me and Iâ€™m mega excited about the HD 4850. The End! - Look out for our HD 4850 content in the coming hours!
