    So NVIDIA's next card released in Feb being a mid range card, that apparently according to them will spell the end for the 7970? then i hate to see what their high end GPU's will do then in late Q3/Q4.
    Given that, then say 2months after NVIDIA release their high end GPU's ATI should probably have a refresh around the corner which will be a year from the 7970 release....and we just keep rolling

    In another thread Nvidia claims that their 560Ti successor will have about the performance of the 7970. They better not scale the prices as such as well. Instead of competition lowering prices it would end up raising prices. IMO, $550-$600 for a 7970 is silly. They always seem to be sold out though, so people are still buying them.

    Only the rich will be able to afford good graphics cards. I had to abandon my hopes of getting a new card to save money for a used truck.

    i dunno, cost/performance ratio isnt really bad at all when compared to current nvidia offerings

    meanwhile, im not surprised nvidia is trolling :D they like to talk

    the prices will drop significant after nvidia releases their gpu's..it's kinda logical to price the hd7970 that high, considering that it is the fastest single gpu on the market.

    If they did that statement the we may be looking at a much better performance from Nvidia in the fight whit AMD and that may lower the price big time on AMD cards !:banana::banana:

    To tell you the truth i was expecting a lot more from the Radeon HD 7970 as well performance wise.According to Hilberts review of the 7970 at 1920x1200 res (which should be the about the same as 1920x1080 which is my native resolution and a lot of others gaming res i assume) the benchmark results of the games tested are a lot lower from what i was expecting from the new 28nm cards, but at 2560x1600 ok the fps improvement is large.I do hope that Nvidias high end Kepler gpu or Amd if they have another card planned to compete the high end Kepler (whenever that gets released) end up having close to double the performance of at least the GTX 570 to make it worthwhile upgrading and justify the high price tag of 500 to 600 euros that the high end gpus usually carry.

    Think everyone was expecting more when the card is at stock speeds.

    Overclocked is a different story though, so don't know if Nvidia are referring to stock or when it's overclocked.

    If GK104 is as fast as a 7970 and is $300 then it will be good for everyone, well maybe not existing 7970 owners but AMD might work something out if Nvidia do go for a repeat of the 8800GT.

    By the time Kepler's fully rolled out, we'll be talking about the 8900 series.

    Completely off topic, but I have to ask. Do you really play naked? because that's a weird user name.

    typical nvidia TROLL here, it's like.....aaaa...hey guys don't buy ATI now wait for nvidia and I it just face palm me the launch of 480GTX....:puke2::puke2:.

    Minimum requiremens for 6xx nvidia high end GPU:
    - Nuclear power plant nears to your hause (direct power line connection if possible)
    - He based cooling for best performnace...

    Now getting real, they first have to present A product and then talk. And also if 6xx will be on pair or lightly faster than 7970, ATI just have to drop prices and again real life kicks in.

    If they had already presented a product, then the product would, or wouldn’t speak for itself.

    You only hype something up when it’s unreleased.

    All we have are rumours, but those are claiming it’s a small chip, so it won’t be overly power hungry or hot, and also that it’s $299 which would mean AMD would have to sell the 7970 at half the price to be competitive.

    Course this could all be BS given some of the sources, so we will have to wait and see.
