Did you even read the whole article?

"Again, this is just a teaser. We’ll be following up with a full exploration of these cards in SLI, comparing them to a GeForce GTX 480."

Great review as always, Chris.

[citation][nom]guid_aaa000001[/nom]I have never waited for this... It's not "we", it must be "some people".Note: That is if you consider "me" in that "we".[/citation]

We, as in Tom's Hardware ;-)

the 5830 i think is a better card, hell you can get a 5770 super-clock it and thats the same speed as a GTX460 for a fraction of the price!

Might have overlooked that line, but I'm wondering how the 460 would perform when overclocked.

I hope they this will make the price war trickle up to the higher ati and nvidia cars. have had my eye on a 5850, hope the 5830 get real cheap fast and the 5850 to follow down to the $250 price range.

i wonder if they will make a new gtx465 with the a full or near full gf104 core.

this is a decent budget card, but this disgusts me. If nvidia really wants to make us wait 6 months after ati, they might aswell made it the extra couple of months for the 480 to be put on fermi 104. i cant believe they didnt wait

Funny comparing a supposedly more powerful card (GTX 460) against the 5770 and it still makes the 5770 look good due to less power, cheaper price, and of course the (relatively) small difference in FPS where it would make a difference (anything over 60ish FPS is not counted).

I am Seriously Considering that Palit Sonic Platinum (my ol 8800gt has been struggling ever since A got a 24" monitor). It has A really Great Price/performance yield. While the TDP is still high it performs a few frames behind the 5850 in *some* games. The MSRP is also not that bad at around 250USD. Its not massive by any means which is good.

This is nice and all, but for me its kinda "too little, too late". Usually my time frame for getting a new GPU is around tax time. AMD/ATI got my money this time around. Maybe next year or so, Nvidia wont be 6+ months behind the competition, and might have a chance at my money. Even though I cut corners getting a 5770 vs the 5850 (5830 came out 2 weeks after ordering :p) I wanted, Im still pretty happy with what I got vs what i paid. But this will be nice in regards to pushing prices down. Be nice to be able to pick up a 2nd 5770 for crossfire on the cheap and not have to wait til tax time to be able to afford it!
