  • Runs hotter and louder than the competition
  • Costly to own and run, Powerhungry, Runs incredibly hot
  • Consumes 52W at idle and 370W under full load, Extremely hot under normal operation, Very expensive premiumlevel product, Cooling fan is audible under load
  • High power draw, Noisy cooler, High temperatures, Fairly high price, Paper launch, High temperatures and power draw makes SLI and triple SLI difficult, Limited availability, Only 480 shaders, DirectX 11 won't be relevant for quite a while
  • Huge power usage, Extremely hot, Higher price than the competition, Flagship product without the full 512 Cores, Needing a set of GTX 480/470 in SLI to use the Surround gaming options
  • Umption
  • Expensive. Power-hungry. Does not markedly outperform competing cards
  • Blocks adjacent slot; loud under load; requires eight- and six-pin PCIe power connectors and robust power supply
