DX 11 results look good so far.
The Radeon HD5970 really begins to shine when deployed against DX11 titles, with performance approaching the theoretical 72% increase in raw GPU power over the 5870. Finding several other titles being CPU limited in our QX6700 test system
, people with overclocked i5s or i7s may produce even faster results and, when combined with higher resolution screens and/or Eyefinity, the 5970's performance lead over the 5870 will only increase. In the coming weeks, we will look at how different platforms
impact the performance of these 5 series cards, specifically more Core 2 vs. i7 numbers.

I wish i7 prices would just drop already so I can pick myself up an X58 build.
EDIT: Review might be made of fail. Instead of being CPU limited, they seem to be bottlenecked by the fact that the Intel 975XBX2 only has PCI-E 1.1 slots.

Edit: The more AA and AF and the higher resolution they go the more the PCIE will be limited. Its like they dont understand that concept.
