Shall we look at GTX 460 reference clocks?

Meaning morphological AA might be available for 5 series cards as well?

I'm kinda disappointed that theres no necessity to upgrade from a 58 series card just yet, hopefully the later 6 series cards crunch out more performance (Y)
It may.

I think it's easy to understand why most of Legit Reviews articles have zero comments.

Check their test setup page - a bunch of EVGA SC and FTW 450 and 460 cards. While the overclockability of those cards is certainly a selling point, it's hard not to see that as stacking the deck a little. Much prefer the stock clocks used here.

Between the power consumption and the performance, this certainly hints at some real fun once Caymen hits the scene in a month.

Very very unlikely that it'd be worth your time to upgrade from those cards. And remember, the 58XX are high-end cards, these are technically mid-range, which is what makes these so impressive.

Good find. Yes comparing stock clocks would be the way to go, but from what I heard, Apoptosis isn't allowed to keep most of the GPUs he gets for reviews. Maybe he has only the OCed versions work with? But either way, thanks for pointing that out.

@CTA. I believe it said it's coming out Q1 2011.

Great review. That XFX grill is just bad ass.

However I'm glad the 470 still holds up. It helps me avoid having to go out and buy new cards just to satisfy my ego and my addiction to buying new GPUs every year

It feels good and bad being a consumer right now. I can buy for cheaper, but with price drops on both sides, which one do you get?
