SKYMTL are you going to do a 480 SLI at some point? Do you expect the same results?

Nice review!

So the internet myth about ''much better SLI scaling then Crossfire scaling'' is now ''busted''?

I can't remember how many times I have read this in the last weeks...

Maybe. At this point though I would like to wait until NVIDIA updates their drivers and cards are readily available.

The prices on the GTX 470 doesnt look to bad, not sure how it stands up to a 5850 but none the less the price doesnt seem to bad for a launch card this early in the game.

Yep. I'm waiting for EVGA or XFX I think (and my new A/C unit).

Great review as always SKYMTL. It's great to see what in my opinion is the most often overlooked and possibly most significant metric - minimum frames. I don't really care that I can expect 300+ fps when I'm alone inside a building - it's far more relevant to know that when shit is exploding all around you won't be standing there with your knife out watching a slide show of you own death.

Very nice review really got me thinking.............Despite their shortcomings the 2 x 470's are an attractive option right now.

Default 470 SLI review

Good review. What would be really interesting is putting 2 480s against 2 5870s. Wouldn't it be interesting to see a pair of 5970s in cf thrown into that review as well?
