Wow, another GHz breaker, will we start seeing these cards sold at 1GHz now? like the 4890?

Gigabyte Super OC is sold with a 1GHZ core.

Anyone mentioned the 6950 yet? I thought not.

This card completes the shut out by Nvidia. Come on AMD, get off your backside and sort this it.

at the sweet spot resolution of 1920x1080 with eye candy on this card is trading punches with the 6970 in everything but black ops, but all nvidias "struggle" here. The kicking that nvidia got last year is making consumers smile this year!

Eh? What exactly do they need to sort out? They have cards that compete with Nvidia in every price bracket albeit sometimes the products overlap.

Once the HD6990 arrives they will have closed out the absolute top end as well.

LOL, and I cancelled my order of this one to go for a more conservative clock from zotac.

no regrets, I get assassin's creed for free and can still overclock it to the same level, hopefully quieter too.

nice card but the tiny bit of extra ram of the 570 seems suprisingly important... 2 gig 560 would be interesting

the 560 ti is definately going to be my next card!

Good God! It quite happily trades blows with the 480 and 570! Overclock it and it starts snapping at the heels of the 580!

Sounds like the proposed GTX 595 GX2 (or whatever the hell it ends up being called) may pack more power than most bargained for.

Would these cards in Sli beat a GTX580 at medium resolutions?

Probably, but then you'd have to live with SLI :-/

Really?

I don't think i've ever seen quite as impressive set of final scores since the 8800 GT came out all those years ago.

How about showing some SLI figures. :)

Bit-Tech couldn't do that because they are so biased against dual card, forcing people who want decent SLI analysis to go to other tech sites.

Yeh but it never makes sense to SLI a mid range card. Lump for a single bigger card and you usually get better performance.

Sorry but your totally wrong. It makes far more sense to SLI a mid-range card as you get more performance per £. 2x 560 GTXs are the same cost as a 580 yet smash it in benchmarks.

This is my thinking too.

How much noisier is the cooler going to be over stock?
DaveMon 27th January 2011, 14:12 Quote
Which would be the preferred card?
The Gigabyte:
At Ebuyer

Or the MSI:
At Scan?

Both in stock.

Only in applications that are supported by SLI/Crossfire, that is why bit-tech are as against it as they are.

Well, purely based on specs, the giga
Better clocks and price.
Unless you have an aversion to giga, I'd go for it.
robump 27th January 2011, 14:44 Quote
The MSI or the evga ti?

Is it worth paying a premium for evga for their service do you think?

Which has more oc potential under water?

Virtually every major game supports SLI and Crossfire with excellent scaling. It it an important topic for enthusiasts which is why other serious tech websites cover it. Sadly Bit-Tech persists with 20th century thinking.
