    heky is right, it doesn't work, I've just tried it.

    Maybe it doesn't work for visitors from outside the UK.

    I would guess the NDA is lifted at midnight tonight if they go on sale tomorrow.... so perhaps pretty much then.

    yay, i can't wait to see performance especially the MSAA in action or if the yefinity can use the HDMI port so we don't need to purchase the expensive adapter

    So is the general consensus that we will see these cards for sale tomorrow? If yes then my money is all ready and I will review these cards too for fun.

    I sold everything off to get these cards at launch.... it would be very anti climatic if it was just a paper launch and these cards don't come out for a few more days.

    Ouch...3dHD a disappointment...3rd party software, no native driver support :(

    Edit: Everything else looks pretty darn good. Just a heads up to the 3D gaming crowd.

    You mean to tell me, a 230-250 dollar card, is pouncing on all GTX 470's as we know it.

    and this isnt even the freakin beast of cayman cards there releasing.

    Dam i should have waited to buy a 6870.

    dammit.

    I would have purchased that instead of this 470. :laugh:

    But i just did a voltage onlock on the 470 and run 900 core so its all good :toast:

    3d is a lame gimmick. I don't see very many using Nvidia's 3d anyways. I've also been seeing many monitors/glasses/etc. being released lately for this. So while I agree that 3d overall is fail, I disagree with Guru3d's comments as it pertains to the 6 series.

    I don't personally game in 3D myself, just wanted to point it out to those that do use it. I completely agree that it's a gimmick, and won't waste my money on 3D hardware or software (monitor, goggles, programs).

    Well the cheapest 470 is $239 on newegg. Which brings me to think that Nvidia not only invested a lot in Fermi but is losing a lot of money with GF100. AMD has managed to make and improve upon 1 architecture for what? 4 generations, being behind during 3 of em. Now they're making chips that are half of Nvidia's die size with the same or better performance. Nvidia honestly can't compete right now imo, they can drop prices but being already at a loss, AMD can afford to go much lower and still make profit.
