Look out HD4870 X2, you are no longer competing and sometimes beating nVIDIA's best card, the GTX260+ has been replaced by the GTX 295.  Sporting an ungodly 1792MB of GDDR3 and a pair of what are essentially GTX 280 cores, this card is unbeatable.  If you splurge and pick up a pair of them (assuming you can handle ~650W draw from the cards alone), you can expect to play Crysis on high quality at 1920x1200 and get average frame rates in the high 60's, an unprecedented score.  Check out Ryan's full review of the new ki

The HIS Radeon 4870 ICEQ4+ TURBO is a full 1GB model sporting a fancy third party cooler that drops the temperatures as well as the noise at full.  As the running temperatures and fan noise were the two biggest faults of the original 4870, this really is a great step forward.  Add into that equation the coming price drop as well as the ~10% o

NVIDIA Beta 185.20 drivers add "ambient occlusion"

A very interesting discussion has started in the graphics card forum about some leaked NVIDIA drivers (revision 185.20) that adds a new feature called "ambient occlusion".  This enhancement apparently is adding some nice visual lighting effects but causes a lot of stress on gaming hardware; HonestJohn saw his Far Cry 2 performance go from about 60 FPS to 45 FPS with the option enabled.  There are screen shots included in the thread as well.

Thanks goes to AudioFreak39 for the tip.
