Pricing aside, if were going to continue to compare the camps of green vS red, I feel the GT280 vS 4870x2 is a non starter. GT280 in SLI vS 4870x2 for performance would work.

Pricing, well that`s a market thing.

2G tho ? What we gonna use that for ?

I don't think we have even got close to using 1GB of video ram yet.. let alone 2.

Rast - I disagree 100%.

You compare products from the same price category. The X2 is technically one gpu so 280 vs X2 is fine.

280 sli vs X2 xfire.

Tox - it's just shared anyway, xfire is mirrored so there is only 1gb ever being used...

Indeed, what are we gonna use 2GB for?

Anyways, seems like a good card, I think ATI/AMD may be able to get the lead again.

Why do people use tri sli 280s? Its a waste lol. Im glad this card is gonna be beast for a cheap price. Maybe Nvidia will get off their undeserving high horse and drop some prices.

So...

CF 4870's beat out 280 sli from some of the reviews I have been reading. Totally wastes a single 280 so the 4870X2 is a worthy upgrade. I''m getting one pending some real reviews but it has to perform as well, if not better than CF 4870's.

Whooooooooopah!

Note: Obviously I'm talking about big boy res, no piddly little 1680's... 24"+ club members (that is my clause becasue I haven't paid attention to the lower res's but I bet it rocks those too)

When is it out? Aug? Whoooooooopah!

P.S Jim - I'm loving whooooooooooopah
