I think it's a fair sized step ahead, and can't wait to see the dual GPU version that will inevitably follow.... and the nvidia response.

But it would be nice to see how it compares to other nVidia cards in the range, like the 8800 range, as I do not think it is reasonable to assume the average gaming rig has a GTX285/295 in it.

Batmobile? Oh that. Yes, we can see why you might think that but it's actually ATI's new Radeon HD 5870 1GB graphics card. The new model is based on the company's next generation Cyprus GPU, but is it worth snapping one up right way? To the Batmobile!

I have an OC'd core i7 920 d0 stepping at 4ghz (I could push it to 4.2/4.3 if I need to), 6GB of Corsair Dominator GT ram so will let you guys know how they compare to my 4890's in Xfire.

I'm looking at this initial review as bit of a preview. You're using beta drivers (not your fault) you're running Vista (again, not your fault - majority have it) so once the 9.10 Cats are out along with Windows 7 - I'll be even more interested to see how things go, and hopefully we maybe a have one or two DX11 titles. Cough DiRT 2.
Good stuff guys, already linked the article in a few threads.

Now there is no way to get that information. Far Cry 2 scores are also missing from your last few reviews.
Very disappointed that the reviews are being cut back in terms of detail. I can't imagine it could have been all that hard to change the setting and run the test one more time.

As much as we’d love to sit here and tuck into the nostalgia-cake, we should probably delve into some hardware chat. For full details, Tim as has already written up the detailed specifics in his usual brand of immeasurable technical breakdown, which can be found here.
Originally Posted by BazAs Bindi's said, Tim's indepth look at the architecture behind the 5870 will be coming soon, as will some more results for lower end cards for those running older systems - it's just testing all these games and cards takes a loooong time. Be assured though if you want to compare you're 8800GT and Q6600 to the I7 rig with an HD 5870 there's an article coming!
