The results aren't too surprising.

Hmm.. looks like the 8800 GTX still stands up just fine.

Especially if you OC them, and they OC well! . But Im really looking forward to the next "GTX"..although Id like to see a "2x" improvement--maybe have to wait another year for the 10800 GTX.

Well, the 9800GTX and 9850GX2 should be appearing soon, so we'll see what's on the way.

If they give a significant improvement over the 8800 then they'll be worth a look.

Guys, Tweaktown's reviews are bought and paid for and they are massively skewed. I have hardly ever seen a proper review from that site that is worth more than a pound of dog crap. Please wait for some real tests done by real sites. Ignore Tweaktowm, Tomshardware, Fudzilla, Inquirer, the list goes on.

I hear you on that one.

It's hard to find a trustworthy review these days, what with all the money flying around.

Tweaktown sells... uhhh I mean gives Editor's Choice to every single thing they review, they a-l-w-a-y-s give good reviews.

LegitReviews, HardOCP, Anandtech and jonnyGURU seem reliable to me.

those are pretty much the only (plus HWC) review sites that are good.

Tweaktown has jump the gun on a few NDAs in the past and I'm surprised MSI or DAAMIT didn't tell them to take it down since the release date is the 28th.

Expect them to do a revised review when the new drivers for the HD3870 X2 are out at that time also.
