so the GTX 280 does better than the 4870 in all but one test for $50 less and doesnt require its own generator to turn on... why would I even think about buying this card??? silly ATI thinking they can compete. NVIDIA ftw

very cool concept, but seems a little overkill considering most games and applications don't use more than 2 cores let alone 8. not that i wouldn't take one if i could afford it...

@ballroomwest "Sometimes I wish gamespot wasn't so, well,...... American! " They are American and live in America and it's an American based website so what would you expect... ? And basketball is not just an american thing so i'm actually surprised you don't know lebron james, kwame i can understand tho. if ur just not a sports fan that's a completely different to start out with. Anyways, Intel will never let AMD have any significant percentage of the market share now that they percieve AMD as a threat to their market shares. Ever since AMD integrated memory controll on the die and beat out Intel performance wise, Intel's R&D department has been working non-stop to never let that happen again. Intel has so many contracts and relationships already well established so that if AMD ever wants to truly compete they would need some completely revolutionary new chipset to hope to get its foot really in the door. Intel already has the majority of the PC market and now all macs (at least most macs) are shipping with intel chips now as well. It just comes down to resources and Intel has more by far. They were complacent and let AMD get close, but even now the new "true quad core" still doesn't outperform Intel's older quad-chipsets. I love AMD for offering competition to make both companies make a better product, but I can never see them ever being anything except a niche company for enthusiasts or gamers looking for a little cheaper rig.

Monstromo you may be the stupidest person i've seen in a while so you dont get to decide what a "dumb comment" is... i know an opinion might be a hard concept for you to grasp but other people are allowed to have a different one than you. smoke a bowl and chill out i can't wait to get this tho, i'm only sad because i didnt reserve the orange box and its been sold out everywhere i've went... ) :
