    I am supposed to get mine 7/10! Hope is actually happens. Although, knowing me, it will probably not be opened immediately. Just think, I could have it in my hands a whole day or two and not run any benchmarks or play anything.... ooooohhh... I bet that really chaps some hides on this here forum! :)

    Know the feeling, or for even more chapped action, I'm publishing the benchmark numbers within 10 mins if I get the wrong power adapter and the system is massively throttled - cue the "680M SLI sucks and we got way overcharged" threads ;)

    Nvidia havin better driver support advantage, for game sake AMD wake up now. 7970m can beat 680m easily but just need better driver support.

    :confused: If it could, it would. Bad driver support counts in determining winners and losers in the GPU battle. Having tons of horsepower is kind of worthless when all of the spark plugs are fouled.

    Agreed!! Wish i could studied driver mod beside my Eng. Even up today, i have seen many of review(notebook check, some others) regardin to single 7970m as it head to head with 680m in gamin even it does job better then 680m. But some basic flickerin issues hold it back, like spark plugs are moody XD

    I sincerely feel the supposedly poor quality of AMD drivers is being grossly exaggerated.
