    Anyone know the time zone and time that the NDA is up? Do I need to go to bed now so I can get up at 6AM, or something, so I can be around to see the reviews go live?

    I'm wanting to know if you can take two Eyefinity cards and crossfire them and still drive 3 displays. I'm thinking about working on going that way. Thinking 2x 5870 Eyefinity and 3x Viewsonic 23" 120hz monitors. I wonder how well driver/game support would be for that....

    Well i can straight away see that graph is wrong as they have X3:Terran conflict marked as a dx10 title, which it is not. This makes me wonder as to the validity of the whole graph.

    Saying that since xfire is not 100% efficient we can see that a single 5870 would be faster than a gtx295 as riddick sees 2 5870s as twice as fast as a 295, but that is using this graph which as i said has simple mistakes in it. I guess we'll see tomorrow/later today.

    Well, it looks like the 5 series is gonna be in short supply at launch, as AMD has allocated most of them to Dell and left everyone else out.

    See this Hexus article.

    well of course there will be a shortage. There always is. Whenever there is something new coming out with very little advertising or promoting it usually means there already isnt enough to go around, right?

    Damn, i'm not happy with this scores. 26.27FPS @ 1900x1200 16AA

    FFS, i know it's 16x, but haven't been enough time to release cards that will make Crysis playable @ MAX? Jesus Christ, maybe it's only a drivers problem and hopefully will be fixed as they release new drivers, still like i said i'm not happy, me and ATi fanboy. :/

    The point is the preference for Dell at the expense of everyone else.

    seconded :D

    and if the early figures are right the relatively low score with crysis is probably due to driver problems.

    if there will be a huge shortage, and the cards will be given to Dell, i will be very surpised. AMD rarely deludes his fanboys. They just cant do that! Screw Dell! :slap:
