[citation][nom]cangelini[/nom]Vendor-supplied benchmarks? Awesome!/sarcasm[/citation]
It's nvidia, they've never lied or used smoke and mirrors before!

/sarcasm

Closed benchmark done by the competitor without showing the actual settings before running. Yep, totally reliable.

erm now /sarcasm

I'm pondering two 5830's, but only cuz I know the GTX 470/80 will be $$$. I'll wait for the already planned Fermi refresh later this year. The 5000 series is built off RV780. GF100 is 100% new. Remember Barcelona? Or R600?

[citation][nom]kewlx[/nom]Fail the 5970 seems to blow them and I've heard of 6XXX series from ATI[/citation]

AMD has nothing new til 2011. Check their 2010 roadmap.

[citation][nom]blackbyron[/nom]How about Nvidia power consumption? I want to know that too besides performance.[/citation]

GTX 470 - ~220w
GTX 480 - ~300w

What do you expect from 3 billion transistors though.

The one thing they don't say is how much power a GTX 480 actually consumes... if what Semiaccurate has been saying is correct, and they seem to have been right in their last articles, then the GTX 480 consumes so much power that they won't be able to build one using two chips, because that would largely exceed the 300w PCIe certification limit, which means the 5970 will have no competition.

Also, from what's being said - and shown, the GTX 480 will need a power supply with a single 12v rail giving 42A. You will clearly have to check you PSU carefully to see if it delivers those 42A over a single rail or something like 18A over two or three rails.

It wasn't so long ago Nvidia had a clear lead with it's 8800GTX.
Or the 6800GT before that.
So, until the real product comes out, I have no reason to doubt Nvidia and I'll look at the bright side, for now..
Other factors like being able to do GPU computing integrated in Visual Studio sounds very interesting.
I'm still waiting for GPU accelerated (OpenCL or DirectCompute) video trans-coding that really is much better that the CPU trans-coding. This may take another 4 years...

ati is going to lower their prices to the point were nvidia can't make any profit and will have to sell their cards at a loss.

The guy giving the demonstration said the system was nt overclocked in any way.

The i7-960 stock speed is 3.2GHz.

What do you see in CPU-Z at 0:54?
