Plus you have more Pencil Modding capabilities and its already at 55nm, while nVidia is still at 65nm right? so its going to run cooler

The nda is supposed to be lifted on the 17th, card is for sale the 18th "supposedly". Also, ste, the new nvidia card wont be a gx2, its going to be far too big and hot to sammich. Its supposed to be another giant monstrousity like the 8800gtx was. Man i cant wait.

Thermal envelopes are not overstated. It's a specification, and the GX2 has a tdp of 197W

Once again, a 4870 512mb that performs better then a 9800gx2 for $245 or less?

Nvidia really needs to prove to me that they need my money on this one, because I think I'm about to spend the best $250 or less dollars of my life.

As long as it doesnt perform on paper and crap in real games like the 2900 did And if i recall correctly, the 4870 is going to be closer to 450.
