    GTX 580 Crysis score is for the next review. I’m testing a GTX 580 from EVGA…

    guys seriously consider putting the index on the bottom of the site too.. using home key is a bit annoying and unfamiliar

    OK, will you then compare 6870 vs 580 ?

    Radeons are fast enough in games, artificial bench demos it’s about the same as Sunspider bench who cares about that.

    @iPristy: sure, all previous scores (HD 5870, HD 6870, GTX 4xx) will be in EVGA GTX 580 review.

    these opengl tests do not at all reflect the performance of real opengl applications.
    when using the latest fermi architecutre in opengl heavy 3d apps like blender, maya and so on the true weakness of these cards emerge.

    it would be really great if you could add a test done in blender to the ones yu already did to see how the “real” opengl performance is.
