I have just read w1z's review of the 440, and now these OEM PR announcements.

The 440 has persuaded me to not buy a 560. Eh, why that?

Because if the 440 is nothing to get excited about from a performance perspective yet it still requires a double slot cooler, then it is a terrible design/architecture/platform. Surely this should be single slot passive. But no. It's hot. It drinks. And in relative terms, it is a poor performer. So by association it is creating brand damage.

I was a fence sitter. Tossing up between 6950 and 560. The 440 has pushed me into the ATI camp.
