NVIDIA GTX 295 Brings the Pain and Performance
Every time a video card or processor comes out, there is a comment cut from the same cloth, because someone thinks that because they aren't going to make use of this incremental increase in processing power then nobody is. Give me a year, and I will show you mind blowing new software. And you will say you don't want it, and you don't want to pay for it, but others will, and thats why millions of R+D went into this. Quit worrying and sit back and enjoy the ride. You've seen this right? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZgoDypGMV50&feature=related
