Dang, it looks like Nvidia has almost no real answers for the AMD/ATI lineup of cards. However, if this card can drop in price a little it may be competitive because of some of it's Nvidia-only features. I mean, it runs cooler and uses a fair amount less power than the 470 and 480, maybe this will become the Phsyx card to get ? Espescially if they could manage a single slot version and drop the price. Anyways, no competition is bad for everyone and I hope Nvidia can get their act together asap.

How many times do I have to say that this is nothing but a marketing gimmick for defective GTX480's and possibly 470's as well. Like the 5830 which was a cut/gimped/ or limited 5850

retail is messed up they charge you for a brand not the product by comparison. Whats worse is that people will buy it.

The GTX4xx line is definitely not the way it is to be played and this latest crappy piece of hardware further proved it. Hot and expensive but poor on performance. The more cards they launch, the clearer ATI's victory becomes.

Yeah well who cares who is the 'victor' of this round, remember the 2900XT ? It goes back and forth forever, pulling for one team over the other is silly considering that as consumers we have historically gotten the best prices when BOTH camps were churning out cards as good as the other one, and they were forced to do multiple price cuts.

That's every card and CPU today that isn't the top of the line. If they have defective ones, they shut down what doesn't work, price it (hopefully) accordingly to performance, and everyone wins.

Chris, I'm looking at the temps and the HD5870 is 10c cooler then next nearest card in terms of cooling performance which is a bit odd. Have you thought about using the Delta T method rather then using absolute values to evaluate cooling performance?

My 9800GTX@750mhz is still kicking and with a 8500Gt@600mhz doing the pyshx, I can still run most of today's games at 1920x1200 at and above 50FPS with high to ultra details and 2-4x AA.

Sorry Nvidia, I just don't see myself upgrading GPUs anytime soon until you release something that was as industry blowing as the original G80 architecture.

NVIDIA needs to put it's ENTIRE graphics card lineup on a liquidity diet... their entire product line is TOO EXPENSIVE! Expect the company (NVIDIA) to go out of business if the prices are kept 50% above ATI for the next 3 years.

Lol, I am actually wearing a Nvidia shirt right now saying how great the 5200 series is. I love Nvidia's quality when it comes to drivers, but they're getting their butts kicked, lets be honest. I run a 6400+ winsor from Amd and GTX 260 (budget gamer/poor college kid). If I had to buy now I'd pick up an Amd Athalon II X3 440 and a 4890 from ebay. Nvidia needs to pass this round up.
 
This is one of the most disappointing cards they have released in a long time. The G80 and G92 days were the best while GTX2xx were still good. I am going to wait this generation out till die shrinks make the difference. Worried about the Radeon 6xxx if they come out 40nm.
