    Yes, I think Shane probably has a macro all set up for "No noticeable difference"

    Good find there G/Archean
    Given that the 10.3 drivers provided a nil result in Metro 2033 using 4xMSAA, I would have thought the 62% increase was very conservative.

    On a non-related note...what are the chances that Nvidia go with a hardware based power limiter similar to AMD's solution for the GTX6xx series? 99%....99.9999%?

    I had the same thought. Power regulation through software???
    I am sure its being reversed engineered as we speak.

    2011 is shaping up at the year of the PR blunder. Between defective Intel chipsets, AMD's is it/isn't it warranty status, iPhone reception (and a few other Fruit Co. missteps) and Fourth of July GTX590's, it's as though every new product launch should be accompanied by the Benny Hill theme tune.

    Indeed...It would seem that the 'quickening' applies to computer components.
