    Question about this, on page 13 you mention
    While the card does support software voltage changes we left it at default.

    How you can change voltage by software?

      Using an in-house AMD overclocking program which is floating around.

        couple of holes in the reveiw,

        why compare the overclocking performance of the card in a game that is heavily CPU limited?

        AMD’s new ATI Radeon HD 2900 XT manages to almost score identical to the 8800GTS 640MB from Nvidia which is priced the same – it is only the more expensive GTX that is able to jump ahead of the HD 2900 XT.
        on the company of heroes benchmark the 2900 actually score alot more than the gts infact its performance is a tiny bit closer to that of the gtx

        otherwise its nice to see the performance gain since day 1

            the HD 2900XT is a monster card, until you want to use AA. Shame really.....

              Think problems are in drivers, cause AA8x is sometimes faster then AA4x, from what i tested, drivers are really in bad shape for now. G80 drivers at release got some bugs too, only few, but surely not these bad AA drops.

                No, the problem is that they use the shaders to perform AA not hardware like all other video cards, including past ATI cards. This card was not thought through properly and unless they come up with some incredibly magical wonder drivers, they will never compete with the 8800's. No driver will fix these cards and their price is much too high. Noone wants to spend $350-400 on a video card that cannot handle AA.
