    Great review Jake, definitely one gorgeous looking card.
    Was there any way the power consumption could be tested?

    yeah...nice features and card, the sad thing is we have to pay for the prenium price for the extra mem, features. Unfortunately, the performance gain isn't that much better than 1Gb version. IMO, this card only benifit if you do Eyefinity of use resolution over 1900x1200.

    Do any of you guys know that is the only difference between the Platinum version of the matrix versus the non plat is the core and the mark-up? Or do they bin the GPU's differently?

    they're likely just markup.

    that's what 99% of all the fancy named editions are. marketing.

    Ahh ok thanks! What I've thought, but anyone have some verification on this? I really don't feel like paying 50$ extra for that simple 50mhz oc I can tweak myself
