Is there any chance W1zzard will be doing a performance review of the GeForce 310.70 drivers?

Personally, I'm curious to see how the Radeon 7870 w/ 12.11 fares against a GTX 660 w/ 310.70 drivers.

If anyone has any info regarding this or can point me to a site that has done a performance review, I'd appreciate it. I've done a few searches and haven't been able to find anything.

Thanks.

I would dig this too...but it's a pretty specific request and not like the guy has nothing else to do. But who knows maybe he will surprise us. Wouldn't be the first time. :)

I'm not sure about PNY. Thanks for pointing it out though. To elaborate a bit, I feel like that card isn't going to perform as well as I'd like it to in terms of temps and other things. I've kind of got the impression over the years that PNY is a lower tier company, though I could be wrong.

Well, its a ref card so i think is as good as any other ref card from any other company but at that price i'll be all over it if i would lived in US, this is 7950 rival at less than 7870 price we are talking bout, besides it has a 3 year warranty.

The 6xx series disgust me, but a GTX 660 Ti for $199 is a GREAT deal! Altough, a 7950 is considerably faster, but costs much more too hahaha
