    Looks like a fast card for the price!

    However,the power consumption looks quite high when compared to the GTX570 which also has more RAM too.

    Could Hexus also add Metro2033 to the test suite?? It is one of the most demanding games out there ATM.

    It would also be nice if Stalker is added too.

    Strange, the review by Guru3D shows very different results regarding to the noise and power consumption. IMO, their testing methods seems better.

    why does the link on the article say "buy now at scan £219" but when you click the link and it takes you to the scan website it says £228

    it can be had from Dabs or BT online for £219 + postage by the way

    Guru3d - the same site that tested the AMD 6850 with the latest drivers and compared to the GTX 460 usin release drivers as they didnt bother to retest it

    nope - guru3d - a waste of space.

    edit:

    ocuk have it on today only for £199

    no they don't, that is the OC version at 900mhz, not the SOC 1Ghz version (which is £234 on OCUK)

    if anyone was doing this card (the SOC) for £199 I'd buy one in an instant!

    Great article as ever, but that Scan price is pretty misleading.
