Now, before I get into this I’m going to let you know that I understand as far as specifications and features go, the GTX 280 is a bit of a technical masterpiece. We should also begin to see the card shine in the next few weeks as drivers are available that can make use of these technologies. With that said though, we probably won’t see that much of an increase in raw performance numbers in most games over what the card is already capable of.
The thing is that the people who review these cards and the people who buy them are gamers; they’re the market you need to be aiming to please. I was looking forward to the release of the GTX 280 as I was hoping it would pull me away from my consoles and get me stuck into some high res gaming with some ultra smooth FPS. I was wrong, so very very wrong."
