It's a little sad and frustrating that some websites can't respect embargo's, however a Sweden based website SweClockers posted the first photo's of a Sapphire Dual-X OC graphics card. Not only that, they ran and published a few benchmarks as well ...

Yeah, but not on extreme because I'm guessing the 128-bit bus starts to slow the GPU there.

with 6.4 Ghz on the memory
that's pretty fast.


7770 = 72gb/s

7790 = 102gb/s

7850 = 153gb/s

gtx650ti = 86.4gb/s


seems the perfect spot, the right memory speed for a gpu that isn't made for running on 1080p 8x msaa, not even the 7850 can score that. 7790 is made for just some post processing like smaa/fxaa, and maybe 1080p

I thing the V-Ram is at the end, but the GPU can go higher i guess.

It's so ironic that this website says,

"It's a little sad and frustrating that some websites can't respect embargo's"

and then goes and posts what that website posts.

Looks like a bad arsenal mid range card. Just might be my new card soon.

Hahah, I know, right?
We all need a little hypocrisy here and there once in awhile; it's harmless guilt.

Well realistically, what do you guys want ? For us to not post this ? I have no problem with that.

I mean, if the websites that leak content stop doing so, certainly you'd not see any news on leaked information. However once the content is out and exposed it spreads like a fire over the internet. At that point for us to not follow means I am sending my reader base to competing websites that do post the information.

E.g. people will end up at other websites as they have the scoop and we don't. I just wish people would stop breaking NDAs and post stuff that is not supposed to be out there.

Lol, I certainly have no problem with it; info is info, leaked or not, hypocrisy or not.
If you want to take it up, do it to the guy I replied to.

It's just that maybe the sentiment about "being frustrated on sites not respecting embargos or NDAs" isn't suited well as a starting sentence the next time Guru3D spreads out leaked information.
A bit of a double-edged sword, though.
You acknowledge it's wrong makes you a bit hypocrite, but not saying anything about it makes you seem to be fine with not respecting embargoes.
Such is life, I guess.

I feel like hypocrite has too much of a negative connotation to it. I mean Guru3D runs on page views. The only person that should be viewed in negative light here is the original leak.
