    I found the monster quote funny. 'Nvidia have a monster on their hands'...yeah...right, how much are they paying you to write that review?

    LoL yeah, that and the fact they bench one crap game that has been shown to favor Nvidia hardware, oh and that ever so popular stone giant benchmark :rolleyes: along with heaven both favor Nvidia, they also run one resolution, meh just another site to go on my blacklist.

    It's certainly on the short list to win the award. Nvidia PR must have ticked loads of boxes with that review. :D

    Kapow! Power consumption

    sorry couldn't resist.

    However legit reviews are a joke in the benchmarking world and now forever will be with this latest masterpiece.

    Its all very confusing.

    Iv been looking at the 5870 vs the 470 since the 470 was released.

    One review says the 5870 is better another the 470.

    Most layman's like your selves say the 5870....

    Personally I have choosen to skip both of them, and just gona wait for the hd6000 series, as Im not happy to pay £300 for oldish tech (now) and for a graphics card, who's tesselation could be better.

    "So in conclusion the Zotac GeForce GTX 470 video card is awesome albeit hot and a bit hungry."

    At least he got that right. :D

    this was an extremely biased benchmark, don't let it confuse you at all. For raw performance the 480 is on top but with drawbacks it eats power like no tomorrow and has alot or reported heat issues which makes sense more power=more heat.

    the 5870 has the edge over the 470, yes some games take full advantage of Nvidia hardware so naturally in the small pick of games the 470 would be better but thats few and those few were the only games shown in the benchmark to further show that the review was biased towards Nvidia.

    To further top it off the 470 has those same problems as the 480 power and heat. For the people who don't care about heat and power usage and want the best card get the 480 however the 470 is a waste of a card as your better of getting the 5870 its a better card and a bonus is its low power usage.

    Wow trust you to find this Raven.... you Nvidia hater.... ;) I think nvidia have a hired a hitman to take you out because of all your negativity you have been spouting towards them... LMFAO

    But on a serious note that review is a complete joke, who would take a 470 over a 5870 anyway?

    Not me thats for sure.

    The only reason to get a 470 is if you get 2 and sli em as scaling on nvidia hardware this gen is astonishing.
