And AMD improved over their last generation by 41%. So what's your point?

What would be nice is a card with nVidia's power consumption (did I really say that?) and core speeds, and AMD's memory size and bandwidth ... Are you lsitening Intel?

My point was just like I said when AMD Launched (which you must have missed my comments as well) is this is a Huge leap forward on the GPU front. These are big incremental changes,

Yes, how to milk every dime from hardware junkies

All the 680's listed on Newegg's site are $499.99 (including the Asus that NCIX is pre-ordering at $599). Unfortunately they are also all flagged as Out of stock.

Nice review, but the mid range cards are more than enough for me. I personally don't need that much video horsepower.
