hmmmmmmm

altough..between the 5830 and 465 at around the same price..performance is i think about the same, with one being more hungry. not the smartest buy in both cases. sad to see both of them doing the same.

Review of two cards up at 3AM EST tonight....errr tomorrow morning. If my alarm wakes me up that is....


And the HD 5830 and GTX 465 are most definitely NOT the same price.

oops, wrong again :p

allright, if me back dont let me sleep by 3am ill check em out.

in a way its good to have an 'obedient' review team, this way we get to see whatever comes out without waiting longer like some sites that dont have 'special access and priviledges' to such products!

let me set me timer, as well, just in case. oy sky, buzz, stone in the window or both?

Wow, that was hard to read:P What I understand is that if you install a GTX 470 BIOS onto a card it will supposedly turn into a GTX 470? Not sure I'd trust that...

All you have to do is flash the bios to a GTX470 and bam you have a GTX470. It seems Nvidia was lazy and didn't do anything besides this for their reference designs.
