mhhh - for me - i anticipated a better performance ... this is good for AMD i guess ?
The SLi drivers aren't finalized yet, and neither are the 3870 X2 drivers. I have a reason to believe that Nvidia will significantly outperform the ATi competition. I also have a reason to believe that they continued with a new GX2 model with the notion that they won't be making the same mistakes with lack of driver support as in the previous model (because as you can see, Nvidia has been consistently pushing out new drivers for the past few months now).
time will tell us everything
btw , as far as i concern it's all about the drivers
