~$370 on Newegg, just to let any ATI fans out there know.

Interesting. From the benchmarks I've seen so far it seems to preform nearly identical to a 570, though it runs about 10°C warmer and is currently $20 more.

I don't suppose it happens to come with new drivers? That aren't the usual fail for ATI drivers?

huh, I'm not sure on whether they came out with a new driver release. oddly enough, the page AMD directs me for 5 series graphics is on revision 10.12 drivers, while the 6 series is directed to revision 10.10 drivers.

I got a good chuckle out of this.

Who can say that they have a hand-polished GPU? LOL
