    Unless you can show that you are better/can do a better job, go away.
    W1zz does an excellent job with reviews. He takes meaningfull criticism to heart and improves when someone makes a suggestion. You have provided no positive criticism and have added nothing meaning full to this discussion.

    (see my prior post for topic relevent content)

    A nice review BUT, one major BUT, the use of old outdated drivers?

    From what've seen, two of this cards in SLI should beat just about any other 2 GPU configuration currently available :cool:

    Oh, and btw, thanks for the review W1zz, it helped me decide on my current card :D

    1st release drivers for a new product are not very good, gotta wait for awhile, that's why he was running known good drivers for the testing.

    btw Warlock, I would assume its a Major Jump, glad you didn't go with the 280 because i think that's getting phased out in lieu of the 285, also it allows for a little more headroom due to drawing a little less power.

    Your manners are as bad as your English. It says you are in Czechia.... :confused:

    W1zzard does good reviews and asks for nothing in return..... you should treat him with respect because this is his website/forum.

    "known good drivers"??? What? The reason why new drivers are released, is to fix bugs and to improve performance where possible. Both ATI and NVIDIA cards have performance gains with the newest drivers. You can easily see how the perception of the performance is flawed. The 4870x2 and GTX285 offer the same performance? That is just :wtf:

    Also the use of the older hardware looks like it would be limiting scores as well.

    I have this card for some days now. I recomment it to whoever has a 8-9 series geforce card ... the perfomance gains are amazing - Especially in very demanding games ( like Crysis )
