    A company says they aren't impressed with their competitor's product.

    Nvidia are quite quick to promote these claims. But we all know that a new series of cards means new early buggy drivers. I remember buying my GTX480 overclocking it straight away and using the lastest beta's and get great performance results. But now nearly 2 years later and with the latest drivers performance is better, more consistent, temps are lower, and drivers are a lot more stable too.

    Maybe this is AMD's way of trying to fool Nvidia by on purpose releasing crappy drivers to show they perform well, but not as well as expected. Then when Kepler is released, releasing a much more stable driver build. Its been done before.

    Has to be faster, it would be a complete fail if a second gen GPGPU was slower than the first gen. :p

    really all the article said was: we were expecting more.

    it DIDNT say that theirs was better or worse.

    (its actually pretty much the same cost/performance ratio as a GTX580) That was the point. Needlessly expensive. SLi of 560's is cheaper if im not mistaken.
    I can only hope, prices have been stalled for a year or so.

    These new cards would have to give at least a 40% increase over the 580 and be less than $400 at time of release before they would even be considered by me.

    Just release the damn cards so we can see how good they really are.

    7970 is not all that out of the box, but once you start overclocking it is a monster. Will the NV card overclock as well? Time will tell.

    I think AMD was very conservative with the clocks to keep the wattage down as there is heaps of headroom on those cards. They might come out with an 7980 or something (considering the dual will be the 7990) when the NV card hits?

    Hey, could one of the mods change the title of this thread - Sounds like it means nVidia expected more from their card 7970, when it should read AMD's card... I know what the title refers to, but It's quite misleading to people who don't know... Thanks

    regards,

    Nah, that will just make the title less funny to the people who do know (as they should) ;)

    If someone doesn't know the difference then they shouldn't be looking at high end PC GPU's, i imagine that is why driver threads are full of people complaining.

    Ok, but I think everyone is able to view this, and people might get the wrong idea, anyway doesn't matter...

    Why do you keep doing this, i'm surprised you've lasted this long considering you've been trolling both sides for years.

    You don't know this, in fact we don't know anything about how Kepler will perform, as there are no benches, or figures just rumors, speculation, and Nvidia saying stupid crap like this.

    whatever you say...i've seen bigger trolling from fanatics those years...keep flaming...nvidia's statement was all the money for me...

    We Expected More from the Radeon HD 7900 Series

    some people are feeling badly because nvidia will keep huge pricing for providing raw and pure power...

    (amd's trolling from me was missinfo because of engineering samples not final...)
