    So, what's the initial reaction to the Parhelion, judging on the graphs?

    What do you read into the decision not to send review samples to [H]ardOCP and The Inqwell?

    It's lame & overpriced.

    They tried to make it do everything instead of just focusing, I think the product shows it. It's a bit of over-priced, over-hyped, bloat!

    You cannot have a gaming card for business, it's just paradoxical!

    As for their decision on not sending out review cards to some peeps, they didn't send one to me and that's enough to make me think they aren't serious about the gaming market right there. :p

    EDITED BITS: Added the tongue-smiley, it just seemed to need it.

    Yeah I agree, the parhelia clearly has the memory bandwith and the features to be something special :cool: I feel if the bumped up the clock, droped the price and made a dedicated gaming card with the Parhelia core then they would be onto something as some of the features such as the AA are superb! :D
