    I have to say, Nvidia is one step away from a epic fail. Delaying it for 5 months and knowing the fact, that it is going to be very hot and possibly noisy + this ridiculous price, the only thing that could save Nvidia is performance. I hope it is as good as Nvidia claims, so that we'll get some competition and lower prices ;)

    Now thats just silly..
    even the 470 gtx will be more than enough in any game at any given resolution, and they are putting 700$ on a card like 480gtx , on the other hand, if the 470 destroys the 5870, then its a nice buy even at 500$ , and if 480 ends up faster by 20% than 5970 then its a fair buy with 680$

    I wish I could have gotten to the site to read the reviews. They closed off the site to members only I think as it wants username and password before you can even get in :(

    at tatsumaru the 480 is suppose to be only 20% faster then the 5870 and that means the 470 will be competing with the 5850 but everyone knows the 5850 will overclock as far as a 5870 and equal it in performance meaning the 470 dosent really compete and the 480 i doubt will overclock far enough to warrant its price tag and since launch will be basically a paper launch with only a select amount of cards i dont really see what all the fuss is about as has been said its high price high heat high power consumption dosent truly compete and is so late its to late to make a difference

    i have never seen reviews like this on a card before its like NV has become a joke to people after its last 3 series have been rebadged and rebuilt G80's and G92's

    anyone think my ti4200 might be worth some money if i put a GTX480 sticker and huge ass cooler on it they are based off the same core design so its not to much of a lie
     
    eidairaman1 and [I.R.A]_FBi say thanks.

    lets see theres the fact there NOT trumpting there cards are the best last time nvidia played the game they are now was when the 5800ultra or w/e came out and everything was very carefully used to show them superior example Heaven bench they show only perticular sections not the the entire demo and 1 game wheres there bravado why are they 5 months + late where is the great green team with there graphs showing performance the only time something is THIS closely guarded is when its failed to meet expectations Nvidia 5800ultra AMD phenom etc you ASK for proof look through the other threads here on tpu or any other forum for that matter on the subjectif they cards werent power hungry why do they now require a larger minimum psu then there competitor for equal performance why do they have case makers making unique cases to go along with there gpus why why is nvidia hold fermi so close to there heart its about to become ingrained in them. even if fermi is awesome its to little to late and to few will make it to market for anyone to care and at there price tag its not worth there price

    You guys are being silly. These are average price points for new nVidia cards, at least since the 200 series. The fact that they won't 'destroy' ATI cards price for price or that it will require a 2000 watt PSU and a jet engine to cool it won't stop the average nVidia user from buying these cards whatever the cost. But the purchases will probably be slow due to DX11 being the only advantage over spending less on a current generation card. Still, there's plenty of Nvidia fanboys around like me (except unlike me they actually have the extra money) for nVidia to rake in a good chunk of coin when they first release these cards.

    Ya know this is one website with a price. Nothing more. They can list anything they want it doesnt mean thats what it will really retail for. Heres an example.

    [​IMG]

    Now would you really pay 321 bucks for a 5 year old GPU?

    Owning none would cost you $0. See how simple it was?
