When it comes to reviewing and scoring the GTX 400 series, the performance numbers in games only tell part of the story. How much of the story it tells is really dependent on you, the user, though. If gaming is all you care about and PhysX and 32x CSAA don't interest you, then you really just want to see how the new models compare against the ATI ones.
If PhysX and the new AA features are something that interest you, though, you may say ok, while the card is a tad slower in this area, I can run it with PhysX which for me is the biggest selling point.
The same goes for CUDA, a technology that ATI don't offer. If folding@home or BADABOOM is your thing and extremely important to you, ATI cards might not even be a factor; the same goes for Ray Tracing.
At the same time, we've been able to give you a bit more insight to the rumors that have been floating around over the past six months at the same time as being able to debunk some of them.
The GTX 400 series no doubt offers a lot of bells and whistles. The question you need to ask yourself, though, is do you want or need them?
It's easy to get excited about what the GTX 400 series can do for us. You simply just have to decide if these are important features for you. Over the coming weeks and months we'll no doubt be looking at a number of GTX 400 variations from companies and let's hope that the model can really shine, because if it was for only one thing, it would be to make sure competition was strong in the market.
