Not Bad

Well with the reviews I've read these cards for the price are nice. The 580 is hands down the best single GPU card. The 6970 which is the new 5870, goes back an forth with the 570 which is the 480 replacement, Yes NV messed with there numbers also. Just going off of how AMD does there drivers and remember the reviews are being done with beta drivers, these cards will see a 10-15% performance boost with good drivers, still wont compare with the 580, but the 6970 will be better than the 570 in most everything, and don't get me wrong the 570 is a great card for price also. So both company's are stepping up which is nice to see.

Not bad but

Now all we need are games that actually use the tesselation feature as it was advertised, and with all the multi-platform games thing going on I don't think we'll see much of it.
