Great review but your site still isn't working on my iPod Touch. You mentioned you were working on it on Oct.17. Can you really afford to give up the hits from 120 million iPhone, Touch and Pad users? Perhaps you could just remove the code that checks for an iPhone browser so they can view it like they were meant to. Instead of only 1 paragraph of black and white text.

If ur thinking about upgrading it wouldn't really be necessary unless you wanted to play the couple of direct x 11 capable titles out there ;)

nah, im not just going to upgrade for dx11, it's going to require a boost in performance as well.

At this rate i won't need to upgrade until after i upgrade my CPU (and motherboard and ram)

I don't think it'd be that much of a big deal anyway, but people want to accuse ATI of cheating.

well yes. someone with an 1120 shader es card needs to do a little benching and show the difference. because its there. of course clock speed dictates who eats first, but so do those extra workers :)


ati, always will be. never forgotten. no matter what the green managers may or may not think, for the time being. when they'll be in deep doodoo they will.perhaps. resurrect the mythical name.

I agree I hate the iPhone mobile site. It is useless and should have a link to go back to full site.

As far as these cards go not too impressed till you look at price. Still waiting for AMD to counter the GTX 480 so they could lower the prices and maybe I would get a 3rd 480. The 6970 is what is going to be interesting for me. Not this medium stuff .

No need to upgrade anyways. Don't know why people with 5870's are looking to upgrade as you would loose performance.

People with 5870 are waiting for the 6970. Same for the 5970 to the 6990.
