Good performance for a single card, but way 2 expensive atm. Great review as always Kempez.

The demonstrably cheaper link does work for me on the last page.

Super effort as always Kemp. Although I would have liked to have seen an 3870 X2 included as a comparison instead of the 3850.

Good review, it did keep up with the Tri-SLI in some cases.. But it is very expensive.

Ah yes my bad. I did look at all the pic pages and then skipped to the benchmarks. Tis a pity the X2 didn't behave

Unfortunately, playing with High settings just wasn't playable at all, with a lot of very visible lag.

Should be "very high" as far as i can see

Card is looking good. Hopefully nvidia can get some better drivers out soon!

Decent review. The gx2 handles most things well, not sure if i am sold though... They can be had for £350.

Oh, page 7 looks like you missed out 'Very' in the second sentance

The 9800 GX2 played Crysis very well with High settings at 1920 x 1200, with acceptable framerate. Unfortunately, playing with [insert Very here] High settings just wasn't playable at all, with a lot of very visible lag.
