This review is from: NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet (WiFi)
Pros: Incredibly fast. I came from a TF201 Transformer Prime, and this thing is just ridiculous. The screen looks good, the speakers are amazing. Expandable storage is looking to be rare in this size tablet, and this one supports up to 128gb micro sd cards.
Cons: Tablet is large for the 8" screen. When setting the brightness manually, it still has some sort of auto brightening. Accessories are scarce, and cost quite a bit.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: When it says 2 SATA connections, it means 2 strands SATA connectors, each with 2 plugs. I ordered some MOLEX to SATA connectors because I thought it wouldn't have enough, but I was pleasantly surprised.
80+ Bronze efficiency, perfect for a HTPC/Steambox.
Cons: None yet.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Amazingly fast. Went from 1 GTX-460 Cyclone to this, and its easily 3x as fast. Ran 3DMark 06, scored 25345. Higher than pretty much any of the 7970 scores.
For the price, it can't be beat. within 5% of the GTX680, beats the 7970, for quite a bit less money.
Cons: Fan on max is kinda loud, but nothing I have done so far has made it go over 50% fan speed, including MSI Kombustor for an hour.
Other Thoughts: I had just about bought the HD7970 because nowhere had a GTX680. Waited 1 more day, and discovered that it was release day for the GTX670. So so glad I waited.
All the benchmarks put it above the 7970, almost in 680 territory. I can't vouch for 7970 performance, but this card is amazing
