Wow, the leaks wernt lying. 20-40% more FPS in current gen games.

As always, another splendid review to the great standards set by HWC

yup. After ~10,000 words, there MAY be a few spelling / logical errors. :)

Nice review Mike, performance looks nice but I am really like that finally we will have a secondary card that completely ( or dam close to it ) powers down while not in use. This has been a caveeat of mine since going to xfire. As you say sure 30w isnt much but I leave my gaming rig on 24/7 so most of that the second card is drawing watts without benefit.

yup this is one thing that I really like about the new architecture besides from the performance of coz.

even looking a the the performance, it rivals the 6990 in most games! juz falling short by a few fps.
