Depending on who you ask Nvidia’s “Fermi” based lineup of GPUs was supposed to be released many months ago in order to go up against AMD’s Radeon HD 5000 series of graphics chips. Ah the best laid schemes of mice and men.

Well the NDAs have been lifted and Nvidia’s GTX 480 and GTX 470 graphics cards are sort of launched and out looking for blood. Aside from the massive power consumption, heat output, and cost they look to be real screamers. Here are some of the reviews from around the web:
