    What is your reasoning here? Not only was R600 6 months late and power hungry, but it was significantly outperformed by the competition, and it was not even on the charts once AA was enabled.

    That isn't the case at all for the 480.

    i was looking these pics,someone from nvnews got them before they took down the link

    http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...43841&page=114

    not counting the games where ati cant run phsx ofcoarse

    as for the drivers used i think the fermi is on 197's and 10.2 so like i said
    cheaper card then the 5870 and just as fast.
    and i guess a 5850 is faster when clocked then a stock 5870??? i think no?

    25%? It's consuming 155W more than 5870! If they loaded with games (and not, say, furmark) that's about twice as much!

    One thing is certain, Fermi and Furmark dont get along. Over a 100c, scares me just looking at it but on the upside the overclock achived wasnt too bad. Im guessing no voltage tweaking on these.

    same with ATI cards for the launch, with beta drivers based on upcoming drivers
    in this case i think the geforce drivers used with fermi will be out at same time

    excellent performance in dirt 2 i am impressed but power draw is really ugly though not a bad showing from nvidia i say

    Hate to say it, but looks like Charlie was right -- and 5870 wasn't even as big a leap as people thought from the specs it would be.

    Yay revisionist history. After 1/2 drivers, faster in some DX9 titles, AA makes it >GTS but <GTX, and slower in DX10. It didn't even use much more power, just 20W MORE.

    But looking from your roots I wouldn't expect any more of your posts

    QFT.
    Taking into consideration that ATI won't be lowering prices soon(hopefully they change their mind), then wait for the "games" and some cheaper cards.
    Sad to say, it looks like Fermi+ should be the key for much cheaper DX11 cards.

    From now on, I'll scarcely look for another Fermi review, wake me up when some magical forceware arrives.

    i hope it does not take nv to get good drivers out ,it took ati 3 months for the flagship card

    Where are you seeing 10% average lead? Re-read the graphs (I didn't catch the HAWX ones, did anyone get them?):

    seems to hate higher resolutions, and really loses a lot compared to the 5870 when dx11 is added in dirt 2.

    If numbers in FC2 are using ranch built-in benchmark, they are very poor indication of real performance. Wait for Anandtech or Hardware Canucks review.
