The tone of write up said it, The vid displays it, the lack of enthusiasm. It's a shame shame. Again though, this is why I come to this site. Honesty! Great point about pricing. All in all, I figure they'll have the 6000 series and GTX 500's out by the time I'm ready to build. lol. Keep up the good work

Bit dissapointing really. For that cash, I would expect something a bit more special. A 480GTX is almost that price, or for £90 extra (which isn't that much more at the end of the day for another core) one could have a 5970. Nice card, but not the difference I was expecting.

To answer non-time wasting questions the card is priced the same as other 2GB 5870s.

I don't see why the chip is so expensive and doesn't offer something that other big manufacturers attach to their flagships: a waterblock.

With a normal 5870 and waterblock (particularly MSI or Asus) you can get 1GHz core. To ask £400 plus the cost of a waterblock to get the most out of the card (not to mention the fact that you lose the fancy lights) seems ridiculous.

I wonder if OC3D had a bad sample, we will have to wait till some of the community get it into their hands.
