The 7000 series was great, and GHz editions kick ass. It's a shame they couldn't deliver 8000 before the end of the year, as it may negatively affect their sales.

that is so bad...if rumors are correct gtx 780 will be twice as fast as gtx 580...

how amd is supposed to battle with 8970, it's not a smart move, they will lose their sales advantage, they always threw first next gen on the market...

after their cpu department failure, their marketing is like a suicide...oh well...

i hope their 8 series will not be a small improvement over 7 series or it's the end.

Rumoured to be just slightly faster 7 series (15%, if that), so will mainly be for 3/4/5/6 owners if true, as no point a 7 series owner going to them, be like a sidegrade.

By Delaying what was supposed to be release this year until next, i don't see how they expect to make more money this way.

Given that the time it takes Nvidia to retail another series and flagship card, any delay for the competitors means less time they are able to sell cards directly competing with Nvidia's current lineup.

Of course its a given that Nvidias next series will perform better than this card from ATI.. so why not market it immediately as intended vs the 6xx series while you can instead of waiting for a 7xx to come out and upstage you shortly after you release the 8000?

Really looking at decisions like this is almost seems to me like AMD WANTS to go into receivership... I just don't get decisions like this.

That would be sad, that's faster then gtx680 by how much, 20%? I expect gtx690 performance, i need to upgrade and i want to do it big. Maybe i'll wait another series if that's the case.

Here in Spain, if you look at it purely fps/$, Nvidia has always been ahead.
400 vs 5000 series, 500 vs 6000 series and 600 vs 7000 series. Maybe some exceptions, but generally that's how it's been for the last years.
I'd love to see AMD in front of Nvidia for once. That's all, no fanboyism in any way.

LOL that's an epic dream pal...it's a refresh...both AMD and NVIDIA have a target purpose of 15-30% improved performance from current generation...

major new architecture we are gonna see at hd9000 series / gtx800 series.

Maybe a dumb question, but where do you hook up a monitor on that vga? Can't see any outputs...

I'd like to see the full 15SMX version but I don't see that happening at the moment.

Looks like it's dropped from the workstation cards, honestly though you don't need them on a Tesla card, they're purely made for computation and usually paired with a Quadro for workstations. Passive cooled versions are used for servers.

Shame there's a delay for the release of the 8xxx cards, maybe there's a monster card in the works?
