It seemed like in every benchmark, once the resolution started climbing, once anti-aliasing was turned up, the card seemed to suffer. It was being punished for not having a large enough frame buffer."
-GTX 260 and up are still very competitive
-Slightly less power-efficient than NVIDIA contemporaries
