Apollodorus August 18, 2008, 8:06 PM mmm spicey. I’ll buy it 😀 Apollodorus August 18, 2008, 8:09 PM Gosh $600 bucks! I’ll TRY to buy it. A+ review as always. I was looking at the Bioshock numbers in the review compared to the old one, way different for same stuff…but realized what it was 😀 Apollodorus August 18, 2008, 8:15 PM Amazing review. Hopefully Xrossfire soon ; ( Apollodorus August 18, 2008, 8:16 PM Need Crossfire plz! Bdog August 18, 2008, 8:27 PM Gr8 concise review. I like the $ out of $ thing…but I’m sure that isn’t a review score…because you guys don’t do them right? At least that’s what Penny Arcade said.. 😀 Bdog August 18, 2008, 8:28 PM As usual…these are literally the best reviews. Bdog August 18, 2008, 8:28 PM Loved it, thanks Usman Ihtsham August 18, 2008, 8:31 PM Thank you. And yes, you’re right: this is not a review structure as you will find, but something special we did for this one to show the value it’s worth. You can expect it on many more reviews (most of them), but this is in no way a review score. PCEnthusiast August 18, 2008, 8:32 PM As always, Kudos. I’m very taken to this review. Currently have a 9800GTX, but looks like daddy is upgrading! PCEnthusiast August 18, 2008, 8:32 PM Once again, really awesome review. And I learned a bit more about compositors! 😉 PC Gamer had you guys on mention last month. Cool stuff bbflynn August 18, 2008, 8:33 PM Oh dude you saw them on PC Gamer too right? It was just a quick mention, but it said you guys helped out at SIGGRAPH and also did a lot of stuff with PC Gamer for the benching of the Lian Li case I think it was :-D. Either way…you guys ROCK. bbflynn August 18, 2008, 8:34 PM Review was simply amazing. bbflynn August 18, 2008, 8:34 PM Thanks again <3 bbflynn August 18, 2008, 8:34 PM 😀 So happy about this review, but I’m waiting on Crossfire as well. ceebz August 18, 2008, 8:34 PM Very glad to see this ceebz August 18, 2008, 8:35 PM More glad to know I can feel SAFE buying it now that WhatIfGaming reviewed it. ceebz August 18, 2008, 8:35 PM You both are slow. They’re also on the back of the 4870 X2 Box under awards logo! lol. ceebz August 18, 2008, 8:36 PM They’re also on the back of the NVIDIA 9800GX2 box for the award logo. That’s how I mainly found this site like …2 yrs ago FreedomPhantom August 18, 2008, 8:37 PM Not much more to say really. Great review, does what it needs to without making it so over the top. Thank you for being the ONLY sane fucki-g site out there to write honestly without the mass BS. FreedomPhantom August 18, 2008, 8:37 PM When can we expect the Ratchet and Clank : QFB review? Sorry bit off topic. Usman!? David?!!? FreedomPhantom August 18, 2008, 8:37 PM 😀 FreedomPhantom August 18, 2008, 8:38 PM Complete cool = this review PCTechNerd August 18, 2008, 8:44 PM Talk about big money on this, but clearly it’s worth the price. Did some extensive reading of everything. Seems this is my next card…but I recently have 2 4870 CF’s from your last review. I’m glad you compared it to the same company (some always compare–which is horse shit). Now I know it’s beneficial to upgrade from 2 x 4870! Thanks WhatIfGaming. Love you guys! IntelLover August 18, 2008, 8:54 PM Glad to see Intel CPU being used…but um, moreover glad to see ALL those games having been benchmarked. You guys 3x this review! IntelLover August 18, 2008, 8:54 PM 😀 thanks IntelLover August 18, 2008, 8:57 PM Interesting Db specs 😐 IntelLover August 18, 2008, 8:57 PM 😀 hahah IntelLover August 18, 2008, 8:57 PM Thanks WhatIfGaming. IntelLover August 18, 2008, 9:01 PM CF 4870’s overall did closer to this IntelLover August 18, 2008, 9:03 PM What drivers are these again ? Usman Ihtsham August 18, 2008, 9:04 PM Latest: 8.7 latest, we did tests with 8.8 beta…but they didn’t match up consistently. Usman Ihtsham August 18, 2008, 9:11 PM Added it to the review as well. Thanks for that. Small slip. IntelLover August 18, 2008, 9:12 PM Cool thanks again. At least the X2 is better than 2 4870’s in Crossfire. Glad to see that. I was skeptical at first that they were significantly better until you mentioned marginally. Then I realized these weren’t beta. IntelLover August 18, 2008, 9:14 PM Stupendous review again 😀 JoshDargie August 18, 2008, 9:14 PM As always, thank you WiG JoshDargie August 18, 2008, 9:15 PM Detailed, short, not too long, sweet, and just overall a solid review.
