    I think that may be the lowest value score you have ever given. Well deserved

    Definately well-deserved, £540 for a card that isn't really much faster than the GTX is absolutely ridiculous imho. Alright you've got the bragging rights of "fastest on the planet", but even so, is it worth the price?

    So when are we seeing a Black pearl review ? (eVGA 8800 Ultra WC'ed for those who didn't know)

    A behemoth of a card the superclocked Ultra, that's what I think.

    this thing costs more then a modest computer, or 1/2 a decent gaming rig

    i really don't see why anyone wants it, isn't it just an overclocked GTX, why not just buy the GTX and overclock it :duh:

    Ahh, but its not. It's an overclocked ULTRA. Very important difference you know. :p

    This was how much I wanted to spend on my computer, and now they release a card just as expensive... Way to immasculate me EVGA.

    Cheers Tim, I was wondering how the 620HX was classed as SLi but I assume the GTS only needs one 6pin PCI-E power connector?
