Impressive card. I must admit that Gigabyte is becoming my favourite brand. Would love to have two of these in sli. Will probably cost around 800£ for two of these

Actually two costs 946£. Gotta love the prizes in Norway

Wish I could afford one

Gigabyte need to scrap the blue PCB though it looks nasty to me, black PCB FTW

This is a great card. I don't mind blue PCB, but I do agree that matte black PCB is still the best looking. I wonder how the 3GB versions will perform?

Glad you're getting concerned about benching results. I'm flogging a dead horse, but they haven't been 'right' since the 6xxx series came out.

One to look at in todays review is the 8xAA here. I'd go out on a limb and say that the reference 580 can-not be faster than either an oc'd 580 or indeed this card. (I'll bow to anyone who can explain how the same tech running slower can produce a faster result however)

I've noticed it in something like the 6970 reviews onwards. The base cards in many graphs being faster than the 'technically' faster card. This, not only is "wrong", but shows that something is wrong with the system being used for testing.

I'll harp on about it again, but I *think* it's your Windows 7 setups. Of course I can be wrong, but that's where I'd be looking.

Good write-up tho.

I'll run the Heaven Benchmark when I get home today at 1920 x 1080 and see what I get.
