W1zzard, any word on when youll be doing the GTX 460 1GB from Gigabyte ?
alot of people have been buying it off from newegg.com and i believe its the card
that has the most reviews right now avaliable.
only reason i ask is because i would like to see the max overclock stable, and max overclock on voltage settings?
Awwww, no VRM and no RAM cooling? Great cooler and review, pass on the card
Is the Cyclone missing VRM and RAM cooling?
How come in the game benchmarks don't have GTA IV ?!
Yes, the only cooling comes from the fan on the card. I was hoping the Frozr (with its Premium price) would have RAM and VRM cooling. I guess I could always add some myself..
Very good review. I like this card, twin frozr cooler looks pretty good, but I always end up buying cards for 200 us$ or less.-
Am I fair to summarize it this way - its dead even with a stock HD 5850, won't be any faster when both are OC'd to their maximum, costs about $20-$30 less than a stock HD 5850 and uses about 40W more power at load?
That seems like a really nice card. I would like one...
Also, nice review. I love how I can compare noise and energy consumption. Keep up the good work!
I've been waiting for this card for a while. Low temps + better OC-ability + low noise = SWEET. But there is never a good time to be out of funds. :shadedshu
An interesting fact is that it some games perform worse then the 768 MB Cyclone. See below
Strange, though no two benchmark runs are ever the same, I just noticed lower FPS on other cards in the 2nd pic. HD5870 loses 10fps, while GTX480 loses 14fps
Maybe it has to do with the different drivers used during each test?
Wiz, there might be some out of date copy+paste text in there. You may need to update your review templates:
explanation is below the specs table
this review doesnt include 512 mb nvidia cards, other reviews do
If you look closely, you can see that all the cards on the right have lower fps. Take the 5850 for example. So you can't compare those two reviews/benchmarks directly.
Didn't see any explanation but as stated below it is a general problem for that particular game/bench.
Almost same setup, except for drivers and HDD used. Didn't see the small note under the test system thing
Great review, just one small thing - the pic on the box is a F117A stealth fighter not stealth bomber (Northrop B2).
Hey W1zz, Digg links are still not working.
Oreviously, clicking hte box in your post would pop up a window, and I could log into digg to submit. now the button changes when I click it, but no popup.
I am not logged into DIGG.
the f117a is a ground attack aircraft and definitely not a fighter plane. for some reason airforce picked F over the A designation which would be appropriate for this kind of plane
All I'm saying is The 'stealth fighter' is the nickname for the F117A whereas the 'stealth bomber' is the nickname for another aircraft.
Any reply on this, please ?
dunno .. not really talking to anyone at gigabyte
