I'm reading it now. I won't buy something vital unless it's reviewed here at OCC first.

I'm not one who buys these ultra high end cards, so this particular statement from the review interests me the most:

ATI has filled its product stack from top to bottom so nVidia has its work cut out for itself, filling up its stack to compete with ATI at all price points. To achieve this, nVidia built a scalable architecture that uses GPU clusters so you can drop clusters (four on the GTX 480) to reach a performance and price point. It will be interesting to see how nVidia fills out its DirectX 11 portfolio.


I'm waiting to see how Nvidia fills the $200-300 sweet spot, currently owned by the 5830 and 5850. Can't wait!

No you have a stock HD 5870 vs a stock and overclocked GTX 480. First colum is GTX 480 Second is GTX 480 overclocked so you can see what a stock and overclocked GTX 480 do against an HD 5870
