My System Specs

Default

Just looking at the pictures and associated comments makes me think there's no way this article can be accurate.
The reviewer fails to notice blatantly obvious details and probably did not provide the correct specs for the test configuration.
I have this card and know for a fact that it uses GTX 480 packaging with a few re-labels here and there. Typos on the box, foam too big for the 470, etc.
On the test configuration, the video card used is listed as the XFX GTX 470, the RAM is listed as GSkill while he says he used Corsair.
He doesn't say anything about what software he used to unlock voltage modding or the software he used to overclock. I know for a fact that this card has voltage modding locked by default.
They're small typos and I understand that they happen, but add the fact that he fails to clearly lay out his testing methodology and only shows results for ONE lower resolution and you have a high probability of an inaccurate review.
