    The place to talk about nvidia's latest when the reviews hit in a few hours!

    Personally, the suspense is killing me. :laugh:

    Ok, thread back open. We'll figure out what to do with the thread mess after launch. :cool:
    qubit and human_error say thanks.

    Hours if not minutes. Nvidia must of given everyone a time that we aren't aware of.

    Thanks for re-opening erocker, though i do agree there are a lot of 4xx series threads...

    Anyways OT with those graphs - they are where i would want them to be - pretty much matching the 5870 - this way we can get a price war going and nvidia will hopefully learn a hard lesson about late deliveries with hot, large GPUs (i prefer the small, efficient approach ATi takes and hope nvidia takes that path soon).

    6PM EST is the PAX NVidia stage time, so I'm assuming we will see something around 3-4PST.

    Nice find. It'll be interesting to see how accurate these benchies are after W1zzard's review is up tonight/today (depending on time zone).

    Really looking forward to the reviews with a nice cup of coffee and a cigarette. Looks like either a 470 or 480 will be my next card when I upgrade my monitor. At that point I may go for a System overhaul as well with a new mb/cpu and ram......I'll also probably be single and skint :)

    Well they are from Hexus.net, an english hardware review site in the UK. Their review went up early and was taken down. Those are the saved graphs from it.

    Definitely not as good as TPU's review will be :cool:

    If those from Hexus are real --- nVidia really f***ed up this go around --

    475 Watts loaded power consumption @ 93 Degrees C...

    And almost no performance difference between the 5870... damn.

    Well, if those benchies are right, then my prediction of faster than a 285, but slower than a 295 are wrong. :cry: Good thing I didn't put money on the bookies, eh? ;)

    But those numbers are pretty bogus. I've gotten better results with a 5870, and the 5870 temperatures are better than that.

    Just under 1hr and a half to go for the damn benchies!
