I don't know why anyone is surprised at a graphics card company optimizing for game benchmarks. It ahs been a common practise for years that they optimize for ebnchmarks to make their cards look as good as possible. That was until they were caught out and people started using real world tests in preference to synthetics. And both ATI and nVidia were guilty of it, and 3dfx too iirc.

670 looks like a great card. Those top mounted power conncetors that far down the card may create a power lead routing issue in some setups though.
Obsolescence is just a lack of imagination.
