So fast doesn't need a cooler. It cools itself off using GHZ!

Where did the review go to?
Or will it be back by monday?

I must say I was a bit disappointed they didn't put a 8800GTS (or both) in the review.

They had a very interesting review online (probably by accident), but took it offline because of the NDA.
I won't mention what the outcome was, you need to wait for monday (when the NDA expires).

But they didn't put the 8800GTS in there (the cards' contender), I hope in the final review that card will be in as well :)

I like it

I hope that besides the GTS 640 there will also be a Tseng ET4000 PCI card featured in the review, so we can see what evolution PC graphics have gone through from before DirectX to DX10 now. It can only support 1280x1024 in 256 colors, but it would still be cool! :cool:
Good luck finishing up the review guys, keep up the good work :)

quick explanation: we had our review at a certain url on the site, but not public .. some smart guy guessed the right url and posted it on xs .. to make the "leaked" page a bit more interesting than "post removed", i put up above review
