    Given the similarity in price, I'm surprised the recently-reviewed 6870 X2 figures weren't thrown into the mix...?

    Re: Reviews - Gigabyte GeForce GTX 570 Super Overclock review

    It's due to the anachronistic nature in which the reviews were completed. This one was done before the PowerColor was started, but we had to lay off publishing due to a couple of issues raised with Gigabyte (which have now been resolved).

    It makes sense to add the PowerColor's numbers to the graphs. We'll do that asap.

    I did wonder if it was something to do with the timings of each review being written. Thanks for the update Tarinder: look forward to seeing the comparison with the 6870 X2.

    As a fan of single card convenience this looks to be fantastic. I am tempted to go the dual GPU route but for a 1080p monitor this is a damn compelling card. Play everything at ultra plus fps to boot. sure you could get two GTX 460's for the price, but is it worth the blueish driver support? Mmmmmm... I'd take the always work option any day.

    OK, the update should be in place. PowerColor's figures are highlighted in red.

    Thanks for that. Could you add a sentence in the conclusion that directly addresses the powercolor card? At first glance it's a bit hard to see why the gigabyte card gets a higher score, when it trails behind in most of the measurements.

    Re: Reviews - Gigabyte GeForce GTX 570 Super Overclock review

    is it possible to bump in previous generation graphics cards ? a lot of people (myself included) use a 460 SLI setup, and this, along with other previous gen card stats, would be very useful.

    the thing is, a lot of users want to know how well each new card stacks up against their current setup, and to check if it's worth upgrading, without having to look up the original reviews

    dual gtx 460s are not only a LOT cheaper but perform a LOT better, and the driver support is superb, i've had nothing but joy with 460 SLI
