Aka "OS heebie-jeebie"

You also forgot to mention that AMD launch is a paper one as the card won't be available until Q2 2014 whereas Nvidia card is a hard launch and is available now.

It'd probably be quite hard to play. I can't see any monitor ports on that card, so I suspect you may find you may die more frequently than usual.

Yes

As long as you are next to Sizewell B to power the card.

I must be missing something...

It's nice to see a 9% increase in peak SP and DP at the same 235W power, but given that the memory bandwidth has improved 15%, I don't see overwhelming evidence for an improvement in the actual processor.

Also why quote the bandwidth with ECC Off, is that how they are actually used?

Maybe with ECC On there is only a 9% bandwidth improvement?
