Those two games are notoriously favourable to nVidia, is all I'm saying.

Still, the results are impressive. I'd like to see more tests done on these multi-card setups.

For those interested, some people on the EVGA forums have started receiving their cards and posting benches.

The card benefits from good airflow movement within a case. Hence why testing on an open system can give extremely high temperatures.

That 120mm fan trick seems pretty interesting.

while the reviews reported 95 degrees load temp, users who got card early, say that the card is in the 85 degrees area. All it really takes to lower the card's tempereture are just a couple of fans, that do net even need to be high rpm.

If anyone is interested, you can download the disighn garage demo from the nvidia website and try it on your card, even if it is not gtx 480/470.

It took me 10-20 min to get to the pics above with gtx 260. It all depends on the camera position, the drivers POV would take abou 5 hours to start to look good.
