I wonder how these scale in SLI...
I was at one point considering sli'd 460's... which is still a very strong option @ 1080 res.... but if i can get great performance out of 2 450's at the same res, then it might be worth it to save the hundred dollars and get a few of these.

Will you include sli scaling in your review Sky?

Errr... Am I reading this right? This seems to say that Dan also has his hands on a 450 and is testing it...?

Do you work in the industry Dan? Forgive my ignorance if the answer is obvious.

SLI will be included in the review in a separate section. Simply because the cards scale so well, their SLI results totally messed up the scaling of the charts.

Damn... I'm gonna look forward to the sli review. Will definitely help make my decision.
Will both nda's expire at the same time? If so I'd feel safe to assume both reviews will be posted simultaneously?

Too bad I just bought a 2nd 460 to fold, if these are that good. Oh well. money is spent now anyways.
