Silver sounds about right wiseguy272 replied on June 19th, 2008 4:54 AM:Yeah. I saw silver and was happy it wasn’t gold.

That’s insane! bbflynn replied on June 19th, 2008 3:12 AM:I know right? I remember it took like a whole room of freaking computers to do that just in the 90’s. Monolith2001 replied on June 19th, 2008 3:25 AM:Teraflop is an immense step up. NVIDIA is still way below that. And only at 110W. NICE bbflynn June 19, 2008, 3:12 AM Nice stuff venkatezh June 19, 2008, 3:13 AM AMD isn’t joking around. Cinema 2.0 was a disappointment, but this is right on the money. PCTechNerd replied on June 19th, 2008 3:28 AM:Yeah. I’ll count you on that. They really did push through this time. Applause is needed ZepherX June 19, 2008, 3:13 AM Full DX 10.1 support. Count me in. Going to wait for the 4870 review, might buy that atl_rg June 19, 2008, 3:18 AM Seriously impressed. Silver is really damn good. Lajk192 June 19, 2008, 3:18 AM Very impressed here.

Read an unofficial review elsewhere, but this one I like. wiseguy272 replied on June 19th, 2008 4:55 AM:Same here. Was some dude who got it from a site. But it’s out in the best buy I’m at. Going to buy one soon =D PCTechNerd June 19, 2008, 3:19 AM This is definitely better than the 65nm GTX 200 architecture. NVIDIA played it safe this time. Sad Monolith2001 replied on June 19th, 2008 3:28 AM:This is 55nm according to the review. Smaller is more scalable. Way way better genieinthebottle June 19, 2008, 3:21 AM BF works at best buy and sneaked one of these out. We currently have it 😉 Does what it says IntelLover June 19, 2008, 3:21 AM NVIDIA lost.

Pancakes June 19, 2008, 3:23 AM I like what I see. Better than my friends 8800GTX? He can play crysis high on 1024x. This is all I need. PCEnthusiast June 19, 2008, 3:23 AM As a serious enthusiast like the rest of you, can’t disagree. NVIDIA sucks this time Vash63 June 19, 2008, 3:24 AM Read right now.
