edit: i saw the pic later, sry..
lol ok i delete my post too so ..
That's why my 5970 was the first ATI card since the 9800XT, if AMD want to go back to the mid level I will just go back to Nvidia as will many others.
my next videocard will be Nvidia...unless amd in the new 28nm battle, make a real strong single gpu...we dont want mid-range for single use...these are good only for multi-gpu...
I have to say, thats what I did. I wanted the best Single GPU solution. SLI n stuff is nice, but it can be a hassle.
So GTX 580 it is, and I gotta say it's been smooth sailing with the 263.09 WHQL driver set.
Yeah, your of the breed of give me the biggest, baddest card out, i will sort the rest.
I hope too many people don't, the last 18months have been interesting GPU wise, if AMD mess this up, it will get boring, and likely expensive for all of us
Alot of other people are purely gamers, who want the least amount of hassle, and the most amount of time gaming, so dual GPU's tend to scare them off, which is why i think AMD might be making a mistake with the dual GPU thing, especially when we know they can match Nvidia with scaling, but we don't know if they can do it with all round support.
perosmct, 28nm isn't likely to appear till 2012, but i don't imagine your system will struggle to much anyway.
GTX580 is looking good to me, might be getting laid off at work, so may as well splash out on something to keep me occupied while im looking for work, even though i usually avoid the top GPU.
One thing, and im sure its the alcohol kicking in, but even from an Nvidia fan point of view, AMD have been shocking poor marketing wise recently, and while i will admit the lack of news about the 6900 cards made them more exciting than either of the GTX500 cards, especially the 570, i just can't help feeling that the 6900 series were built up too much by fans, which can only to disappoint, and in the long run that will do more harm than good.
Dont judje AMD. All the infos are based on rumours.no test had been provided officialy.
rumours.no, is that a Norwegian tech site
I'm taking the word of chispy here, a well respected member, big bencher, and seems to be an ATI/AMD fan, so im pretty confident he wouldn't report false info.
As i said before, why is the fact these are slower such a problem, i don't get it!!
I wouldn't mind ditching dual cards, it is just that year to year increases in single cards have been pretty small in comparison to the golden PC gaming years of old. So I thought to hell and when I moved from my 8800Ulra I wanted nothing less than double performance so it had to be ATI's 5970.
But the driver support has been mediocre at best something I think Nvidia does better with so if they had a decent alternative rather than a sidestep to the 5970 I would jump ship.
I also got the 5970 when I got laid of work, kept me happy for the months before I got a job again :nerd:
ATI struck gold with the 5000 series, good speed, good power consumption and monster overclockers.
There is no way they could do the same with a simple refresh, we were all dreaming but at least being equal to a 580 would have been nice. But I guess they just need to find a niche and not compete with their own upcoming 6990 which cant be a huge leap due to TDP limits.
bohooo, i hope thats a "break in the clouds"
boohoo and your problem is?
i asked because the last thread got deleted, and Hilbert removed his picture cause of amd, so chill..
And i posted it only because mr chipspy thought i was bluffing and spreading Fud lol...besides the guy who posted this picture was aware of nda anyway, guess it doesn't matter anymore since we're beyond 10th Dec.
When is the NDA up?
PCB Black , Red = fake
Samples != Retail
how do you know that?
what if red is a ES sample, have you ever thought about that??
and i really doubt that guy would show a fake ES card anyway, why would he pointless lol:nerd:
anyway whats NDA means? xD
So it's going to cost £60 more than the GTX570 and perform similar? Going by the pricing OCUK released earlier.
Not doubting you, but it makes no sense.
it means that any real/important info is considered classified and closed for public..or something like that
Well that's the big thing - AMD is releasing this AFTER Nvidia, so they know exactly what the competition is and what pricing it is - it would make no sense for AMD to suddenly turn around from providing the best price/performance unless the prices are wrong too (which is good for consumers tho)
Say What You Want , but Softly
