Skimmed the 480 quickly...

This resemble very closely the GTX260/280 of a few years back. The cards are about 15% faster then their ATI counterpart and are around 15% more $$$ too.

I hope this will drive the ATI prices down a little to make them more attractive.

I'll give it a few weeks before replacing my GTX260.

Now I wonder at what temperature I could bring the ambient temps in my basement if I folded with 2 480... :D
