    crysis warhead laughs at it when it does 19 frames per second in at 1920x1200 enthusiast settings and 2x AA.Or bump the res to 2560 x 1600 and it chuckles at the 12fps.:D

    A score of P23499 in Vantage? I get a score of P23033 on my OC/d GTX 295 system, which is now almost 2 years old. Tessellation will be a bigger issue this time next year... at which point I might consider a GTX 590 card. That will be 2½ years with the same card. Never thought I'd see the day!

    I played Crysis very nicely on my old HD3870 at 1920x1080 w/o ANY problem, no apparent delay at all !

    That "but can run crysis?" is just a very crappy rumor.

    One thing is that i wouldn't be surprised if on console versions they make sacrifices, say example in most FPS on a console i woudln't be surprised they intentionally gimp on the backgrounds to save resources or other stuff and tweak the engine alot to run it better which i say is increasing costs, but i'm not sure though.

    Mmm can't wait to see the price/performance on the 6950. Looking at the specs on the wikipedia page (which seem to be changing day to day LOL), it seems that similar to the 5850/5870 the some of the 'handicap' of the 6950 compared to the 6970 will be shader cores but most will be clock rates.

    It will be interesting to see the reviews and how far the 6950 and 6970 can be OC'd. If the 6950 will approach stock 5970 speeds or beyond it will offer a huge amount of performance for ~$400.

    It is definitely upgrade time for me as my 4870 512MB is starting to show its age and also I'm sick of the all the idle power it burns while my desktop is sitting (almost) idle most of the time.
