    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.

    why is that every thread, becomes amd vs nvidia fight and the room for speculation and rumor

    maybe the 6 series will be at least 60 percent faster than the 7 series

    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.

    Man I was really hoping for a little sooner than Q2, wanted these in place before Crysis 3 rolled out.

    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.
