    I bet later along the lines, they will release tri and quad SLi scaling, just like with fermi. Only tri was available, then eVGA got them in quad SLi.

    its physically impossible on the card to do more that SLI unless they make a new model number say 475

    That was awesome. Not bad on the 460 sli. I like seeing at the end of the performance per dollar section. Makes me feel good having gts250 sli. lol. Funny how 460sli is a hair below 5970 and cost much less. That's you FTW right there. JMO.

    hmm, few fps less or few hundred dollars less. you decide.

    From the positive feedback of this forum and the reviewer. I this think card will be like the repeat of the 4770.
    If you all remember, the 4770 was the first ATI GPU that uses 40nm manufacturing and it was a great overclocker with a low price. two of those cards is faster than a 4870 at most resolution!
    That card became so popular that it was always out-of-stock. Moreover, it never drop in price (although it did not go up in price), while cards like 4870 and 4890 prices kept falling.

    Some may say the the 5830 is a comparable card and a lower price. remember, throughout history Nvidia can always compete on the market share with higher price as long as they have a competitive card.

    Just like I said before,

    ATI better prepare for a fight.

    Yes but this still isnt good enough to overtake the 5970 though. If they can make a GTX475 with low tdp they might be able to upset the 5970. I know its coming but they need to hurry ATI isnt just gonna sit back and give them all the time in the world.

    +1

    6xxx series in coming out in H1 2010, and the 6970 will be released in about another 10 months and BAM!The competiton is crushed! So they better put out the GTX 495 and start up on the GTX 5xx series.

    P.S- I too am hoping to see a card that beats the HD 5970 by a mile. :D :laugh:

    GF104 really is the G92 of the new generation. Time to sell my GTX285s.

    It'll be interesting if they release duel Gpu solution based on these 104 chip.

    Any rating for this SLI setup from TPU? Also power consumption stats?? just 4 curiosity;)

    Thats the best scaling ive seen from any Nvidia card to date, the best i saw before these was the 9600GT's, well done Nvidia im impressed.

    Also agree this is not going to cut it against the 5970 if they make a dual card set up, Close but not close enough, GTX495 will have to be two GTX470's at least, and it wont be long till ATI bring out there next series of cards, time is of the essence. Knowing Nvidia they would want something that beats the 5970 in everything, not just 50% of games or less.

    On the other hand, a dual GF104 card should cost a good deal less than the HD5970.

    Price wars FTW.

    2 GTX 460 is better buy than a single HD 5870 or GTX 480, but still I'm an ATi Fan... ^^

    Lol. Not really. If you get 2x GTX460s you'll be limited to 2 cards. While HD5870 and GTX 480 can have upto 4 cards with extreme performance that will shit on 2x 460s :p :laugh:

    Hehehe, if you've got the cash, then go for quad crossfire or quad sli, with 1xxx watt psu, but if you're out of the budget, then you want dual card configuration, then get this... It can match the performance of a HD 5870 in dual crossfire configuration, i think... :laugh:

    Fixed. :p Dual 5870s out perform the HD 5970. And a single HD 5970 performs 10% more than 2xGTX 460s.

    Then, a single ARES will outperform a single HD 5970, then a Dual ARES will outperform a dual HD 5970, then what comes next??? :laugh:

    I've got a GTX 285, but since the GTX 460 is such a nice card that it makes me wanna rush out and buy it right away - and it doesn't even beat mine on performance! lol :laugh:

    I guess DX11 gives me an excuse to buy it. :D
