Nice revew! Well done! I can't agree more with you. Did you folks rerun all your cards with the newest drivers (the ones on page 5)?

Any chance of including 5770 CF setup?

Alas, currently we have only one HD 5770.

I wonder how much of an impact the new drivers are having on existing Fermi cards. They seam to under perform considering their specs and my GTX460 is the same in some games.

nforce4max, how do you figure?

GTX470 easily dispatches a 5850 and beats the HD5870 in almost every single DX11 game in this review (unless you are talking about 2560x1600 res.) despite being priced at $270 in many places vs. $350 for 5870. GTX460 factory pre-overclocked to 800mhz also only costs about $230 and easily beats the HD5850.

Plus, given the significant texture fill-rate disadvantage Fermi cards have vs. Cypress chips, it's even more impressive. Right now AMD only has 2 cards worth buying in their line-up: HD5770 (price/performance) and HD5970 (fastest card).

HD6xxx should reposition AMD on top of every segment though I imagine.
