did better than I expected and am glad it's to be released for a low price.
I wonder how much the extra memory helped it or if it was mainly the higher clocks.
Good review, I don't have as much anger towards this card now haha
(and wow to the show the 4870 put on)

Is anyone able to comment on the rumored cherry picking of these G92's for the initial 250 reviews?

I'd be surprised if they weren't. Nearly all review samples are.

GTX 770 replaced with watercooled GTX780...but too lazy to change the sig.

We have no comment because to be honest we have no idea. Since I am not the one picking the card all I would be doing is speculating we test the cards as they come in.

I wonder how much longer it's gonna be before nvidia comes out with a NEW mid-end gpu and cuts all this rebranding nonsense. It's starting to get on my nerves. Surely they have the money, don't they hold market majority?

Probably a bit after ATI released its HD5000 series, as they then know what they are competing against. That is just my thought though :thumbs-up:
