Here's the review of the XFX GTX 280: http://www.overclock...ews/xfx_gtx280/

Awesome, F@H for NVIDIA! And at that speed.... :o

I guess I have no excuse for not being as awesome as King... - iKillSteal

Seriously, big credit goes out to King for maintaining this list. He puts a lot of work into this thing and he deserves our thanks! - Verran

Cracking item, this one. It's going to require something rather special from ATI to top this one!

pretty impressive how it is equal or near to dual GPU cards... will be interesting to see what the prices turn out to be...

I'm rather looking forward to the review of ATi's 4850/70 when they role around in a little while.

If performance is to be expected and with the 4870 being half of the price of this, then there might just be a little problem.

That's interesting, but of limited use until proper applications can make use of it... that's unless someone makes snazzy plugins for stuff :)

Lego, there is a competition that is being set up to create a program that encodes LAME using the GPU - hardnrg has made a thread on it :)

I really expected a higher 3dmark 06 score. Maybe with better drivers it will be quicker.

the price could be a a rough guess. i hope to god there not this much for a single card but it wont be a shocker if it is that high. you could get two very nice cards for that amount of money.
