ASUS ENGTX480 (nVidia Fermi) (LostCircuits)  - ASUS ENGTX480 (nVidia Fermi) (LostCircuits)

The points raised above are what they are, weaknesses in performance and concept, some of which can be viewed as reaction to the necessity of bringing something to market soon. On the other hand, when we say "weakness in performance" and "imbalance" we merely mean that the current implementations may be short-selling themselves and that there is a very good possibility of drive tweaks or slight adjustments in silicon to unleash a "full version" of Fermi (or GF100) and to make the individual parts play a bit nicer with each other for a major performance boost. Anything is possible in the near future, particularly, given the relative "novelty factor" of GDDR5 for nVidia, we would expect nVidia to ramp up the memory speed a bit with the next stepping and that will already add a performance boost in quite a few applications, particularly at high resolutions and antialiasing. None of the above mentioned criticism can take away from the fact that the ENGTX480 is the single most powerful graphics card we have laid our hands on thus far. Yes, there are some flaws but they are negligible in the grand picture of the performance of the ENGTX480 which is one hell of a card. Maybe a bit ahead of its time with respect to some features but somebody needs to trailblaze the future developments. The Fermi is certainly a step in the right direction.
