Looks like AMD might be gearing up for NV's GK110 card which comes out in a few months. AMD sure is showing them!

The funny part is that AMD was supposed to have a reputation for the cooler running cards, wasn't it? I think we're seeing a new AMD. Gone are the days of cool temperatures, low prices, and less performance (oh wait, it still does have less performance) :teehee:

Yes they were known for it, very much so when the 480 GTX was around.
