The Asus looks nice n all but Ill go with the powercolor PCS+ 5870
Is that iTracker software work on other cards? It's a hell of a lot better looking than the horrid Smart Doctor.
Well it looks good, and uh...that's pretty much it?! It doesn't have much going for it compared to the base model, so totaly not worth it imo.
i see, thanks
wow very nice card, i still lol to the see the good ol 4870x2 still romping face. lol that thing was ahead of its time! *wipes a tear*....ill retire mine on a plaque im not selling it GET OFF ME
Any idea when this is actually coming out? I've seen it in reviews since fermi, talked about way before then... but even now with a proper review I can't find it in stores.
Seems like the direct touch style heatsink might be causing a lack of efficiency cooling wise. Two of the heatpipes are barely making contact with the core, and certainly won't be cooling to their capacity. A thin copper baseplate with the heatpipes soldered to it may provide a better solution.
Definitely digged the review.
See what I did there?!
Hello, W1zzard! This is unrelated but I don't know where to post. Can your site put a "Print All" option on your review articles so that readers have the option to print-to-PDF the reviews? I for one don't have internet access at home so I read reviews offline. Thanks!
I must disagree wtih directX11 not being relevant... there are already several big games out using it. Sure 'limited DX11 titles at present' - but its hardly "DirectX 11 won't be relevant for quite a while" - its already relevant for bad company 2 and dirt 2 players, for example.
Solid review as always. Looks like an interesting card. Good to see more cards being released with 2GB.
Would love to see benchmarks of this card in 3-way CrossfireX...

Hope this was to some satisfaction for you any way mate.
That sick system and you're putting Norton on it? :shadedshu Save your loot, Get MSE, and use that money for beer or something.
No mate, of 2 reasons.
I don't drink much alcohol nowadays, at most 4-6 beers / year.
I have bean testing lots of different software firewalls and antivirus/spywares and I found Symantec Norton 360 Version 3.0 & 4.0 to be one of the best on the market just now.
Symantec Norton 360 Version 3.0
Symantec Norton 360 Version 4.0
I let PC Magazine Reviews speak for it self's.
By the way, what use is it to have a BIG "tool" (penis) when you might not know how to handle it.
I recommend you to stick to quality rather then quantity.
PS. Symantec Norton 360 Version 4.0 is not the ONLY security I have.
An excellent specification there twp - I'm incredibly jealous, can only dream of having that. I agree with Don and it's a massive kick in the balls to put Norton on there, if anything I'd go with NOD32 - best ever AV program IMO.
Gutted to hear you don't have a camera but still, I look forward to 'seeing' your (benchmark) results.
Thank you so much for your nice words, but please, don't be jealous for what I have. I promise you that there is NOT ANY material things that made me a better human bean or happy in the long run.
My stuffs are only something that keep me going on everyday basis.
Priority 1 is health and harmony!
Be proud for what you have but work dedicated to meliorate it if you want and can.
I wish you all the best mate!
