    At same time "early report about 6970" on the article of Fud = the rumored "leaked benchmark " of 3D vantage and unigine who have surface in October on the well known now china sites about a 6970 ( who was called 6870 at this time by them) .... where the cards was faster of a 5970 on Vantage (with no specific Cayman driver )... Fud will allways amazing me, on how they push a speculate rumor to another as a report.

    I said the 69xx series isn't, but everything else in the 6xxx series so far is, yes, a rebrand.

    You forgot about 68xx series, they differ from 5000 series.

    I don't think GTX580 is going to get anything from the drivers since it's not new architecture. It's almost exactly same old GTX480.

    AMD changed bit more in architecture on HD6 but i still doubt drivers will provide any real boosts (maybe in sigle games)

    Hmmm, that HD 5970 statement should be revised to "World's fastest graphics card... when the game actually has CrossFireX drivers that work!" IMO. :p

    Doesn't matter, still fastest card. Still a single PCB.
