    Why would they present a product that's existed for almost 2 years? It's not a consumer product. It's for st.reaming "cloud" games, the same as NVidia's GRID. It works server-side to process graphics data.

    The cards are expected to launch next month. (unless another timeframe was stated during the presentations)

    I think the most interesting part was the introduction of Mantle used by Frostbite 3 for BF4 in december. It is supposed to be a replacement for DX. It allows direct access to the hardware and drivers. Normally that would be a huge task not worth getting into, but because the XBox One and PS4 are supposed to be GCN based as well, they share some of that technology in the Frostbite engine. If Mantle is really capable of 9 times the draw calls than DX then R9 and R7 users are going to have a blast. Even twice the calls would be great.

    Mantle does sound fantastic, hopefully the reality matches the marketing.

    The best thing about it, it's not a tech demo on an obscure engine, but an actual game with many more to follow, doesn't hurt to have it supported by a huge developer/publisher.

    It will make Dragon Age v Witcher alot more interesting from a technical point of view as well.

    They did not mention the 7000 series, but they did mention the new R9 and new R7 series. So perhaps that implies GCN 2.0. I hope I'm wrong, though. ;) That slide makes me think it's 1.0 as well.

    My speculation could be as early as middle of next month. They did say the LE B4 290X edition would be for preorder October 3rd. And BF4 comes out end of the October? So they probably will have reviews in a few weeks then actual cards by the end of the month, just my speculation.

    5K came out September '09
    6K came out October '10
    7K came out December '11

    So it'll only be a matter of time I guess :p

    October is usually big on games, November is usually big on tech gadgets as well

    I'll probably be sticking with my current setup, although I might bite the bullet when I see some benchmarks. I'm running pretty much everything I play at high settings as it is.

    I wonder how this will work for Nvidia cards.
    I mean people were against GPU physx because it runs only on Nvidia cards. Would people feel the same if the Mantle runs exclusivly on AMD cards ?
