    Id say that extra 1gb would shine in BF3

    Nice and quiet, appearently the extra memory isn't needed at the tested resolutions.
    Pricewise it's very very close to the stock 570 though.

    Time to get BF3 on the test bench! Its the only game that is going to push the higher end cards.

    Always thought a 2Gb 560 would be perfect for an SLI setup......

    Agreed. Among others, but mainly BF3 cause its so popular. Hoping that ALL graphics cards have a minimum of 1.5GB, hopefully 2GB of VRAM next gen, it's really starting to get used up fast with higher than 1920x1080 resolutions, 3D, Multimonitor, mods/pushing settings past default ones.

    Not necessarily just the quietness, but IMO this thing looks class.

    Now that is one sexy looking GPU. I agree with having a BF3 benchmark.

    I've had one for half a year now and really enjoy the silence. It also offers plenty of performance for my needs and frankly I don't care about the factory OC.. It comes at a premium price, but then again, buying a cheaper 560Ti and fitting it with a quiet aftermarket cooler isn't cheap, either and voids the warranty, so IMO there's definitely a market for cards like this.

    This card is over 2x the speed on average with ULTRA settings and 4AA than the 1GB card in BF3.

    Reviews need tests updating as they are providing a false sense of security to those thinkling about a 2GB card over a 1GB card with the illusion a 1GB will do.

    Why include a VGA port? It would have been much better to have all the ports on teh bottom and a full length vent on the second row.

    think you guys might have mixed up the numbers on bc2- 1080p for the 6990

    I've got a 2gb 560ti and its excellent, averages 45fps in bf3 and is super quiet, can here the hdd over it at most times.

    We got MSI to do the testing for us who had the opinion of "cant be" only to find out it it was.

    This still needs to be backed up with some form of evidence.

    Disabling "Desktop Composition" isnt really an argument for or against just incase you plan on using that ;)
