It would be nice when the 290X comes out if you could weave in there somehow, how fantastic these cards are at folding.

Is it just me or were there a few benchmarks where thee 7970 out performed the 280 x. I found that really unusual/confusing

As for the now confirmed pricing I can see how that bumped it up to gold award because you can essential crossfire 280x for just over the price of a single 7970 when they were released
