No power consumption test? What is this, a review, or advertisement?

Also no temps and noise.

It helps that you read the review, but I guess that's asking too much, for a person that's so quick to criticize and accuse...

Page 2:

"Of course, overclocking the card almost exclusively means higher noise levels, but you should know by now that the cooler is pretty loud, even on reference cards. Consumption increased as well – our test rig strapped with a reference GTX 480 drew maximum 515W; GTX 480 UC pushed this figure to 525W while our overclock resulted in the rig consuming up to 560W."

It's not weird at all. It's right there, for anyone willing to actually READ the review...

My bad, then. I did go through all the pages, but I didn't read everything, I expected a graph.

Still, measuring the GTX 480s' power consumption is good, but what about competing products?

Sorry, the Russian Navy wasn't willing to supply us with a reactor from an Akula class sub. Budget cuts...

OH I think as a "typical Russian" i got one spare reactor somewhere..i guess its under that pile of Marx books, or maybe behind dozen of vodka bottles in the corner. I can find it for you if you need it :P

I've got a ton of Marxist literature at home, does that make me a bit Russian too? ;-)

As for the vodka, it keeps fighting with my bottle of Jack. Ideological differences I guess... The vodka wants all drinks to get the same amount of ice, but the whiskey wants the whole freezer for itself. For some reason, it also wants to marry its cousin.
