Excellent! Come fold for HWC!!!

I actually think the 470 is really where it is at. Probably the mainstay card in nVidia's stable now for a while. As with all things eventually they will Iron out some of the issues with these cards as time progresses. As of course revised drivers down the road will help too.

True F@H numbers would be nice , but I imagine that depends on this cards ability to support it this early in the game.


Excellent Cards, nice to see them in the flesh so to speak.

Folding Forum folks seem to think 15K is more realistic.

I'm hoping they'll have enough cards to at least ship those pre-orders made within first few hours today, I'm ok to wait 2 weeks if the card is there.

Something I just picked up on in the 470 review: "There is no SPDIF input since all audio processing is now done natively on the chip itself."

So onboard audio decoding for audio over HDMI?

One thing that I look at myself and frankly find most important is the minimum fps. quote]

My thoughts also. The 470 looks good.

Thanks for the review Sky.

Yes I seen that also. Nice that there is no more need for an extra connection to get this done.

Let's just chalk it up to different methods getting different results.
Ya I was looking at their numbers in their review and was like WTF how can I even compare these 2 cards with the way they're testing??? So I stopped reading their's and started reading your review lolz Very tempted to preorder one of the 470's but I think I'll wait a while.
