GeForce GTX 470 & 480 Are A Tad Disappointing

posted in: Technology News | 0

I’m a bit late on this, but it looks like both AnandTech and Tech Report reviews are essentially saying the same thing: the AMD/ATI Radeon HD 5850 and 5870 are better buys.

While these new NVIDIA video cards are “10 and 15% faster”, they do cost more, consume more power, run hotter and run louder than their AMD/ATI counterparts. So why bother with these new cards? There doesn’t seem to be a reason to.

I hope a price war between these two video card giants starts up. That’s when I can make a real purchasing decision because, quite frankly, they’re both a bit too expensive for my tastes.

$250 or less please. $200 would be better!
