and yea the 280 is a good card, but the DX11 on this card is that next level that will do the job. Wait til Crysis 2 comes out, you'll "NEED" a new card. haha i think. (but maybe not since it's really optimized) afterall it will be on consoles.

16xAA is 4xAA with 12x CSAA.
16xQ is 8xAA with 8x CSAA

what i'd like to see is how well it performs with 8xSQ set in nhancer :P

however i've seen some fools at overclockers.net using the crysis benchmark tool in dx10 mode, who believe they were running 32xS xD not possible since Dx10 apps won't accept overrides from nvcp, unless that suddenly changed overnight(basically)

Speaking of 32xAA I'm going to be running a few Benchmarks over the next few days for that Exact site.. haha. so anything you wanna see go ahead and let me know. I just did Just Cause 2 Fully Maxxed out with everything on high, including AO.



More benchmark tests will be coming soon, I have plenty of games to test.

Well, the usual's would be stalker, crysis.... both of which favour ati for some reason.

then theres Farcry 2, GTA4, Metro 2033, RE5, SFIV, Sup Com 2, NFS Shift or substitute with your own favourite racer :P, I still consider oblivion to be a card eater...., and if you use pcsx2 at all, its always fun to find out how high you can take the internal res before games become unplayable.

Dirt 2, HawX etc.

i doubt it'd choke on the new sam and max game lol.

so skunk they are not.. a little manual adjust of the fan speeds and they are fine. mine idles at 44c in room. (cooler than my 260's) and load around 75-80c for most games with fan speed at a quiet 70% at 70% they are quieter than my fans on my radiator

and I have Dirt2, FC2, JC2, MW2, COD4, Fear2, both Crysis Games, L4D, L4D2, GTA-IV.. all these will be benched eventually. I'll do a few tonight and post up

and Thanks Jerm* I wish you had the Full Nickel in stock when I ordered. I did the Nickel Coppper instead. (if you have those I want a full nickel) or let your friends know

lol....... i knew it!!

before they were released these review sites were reporting 70c idle temps & well over 100c load out.

& then next to it they had the 5970 with an idle temp of 45c & a 95c load out... now my card has never seen over 70c OCed to 950/1275, so i knew the reported temps would be slightly bloated...

but by the looks of it, they were seriously off the mark.

& .... Nvidia's back in the game!!
