    Salt on the wound?

    Actually, AMD probably had very little idea how low nVidia would be in terms of performance when they were developing their own product. Antilles is just the extreme.

    Halo. The big brand halo.
    How tempting is the "performance king" title...

    I'm still being cautiously optimistic. I have a fair bit of faith in Neliz but I'd like to be patient now with so little time left.

    Pretty sure no one knows the real price of these cards yet except for maybe Dirk and five of his most trusted buddies.

    What then was the point of 5970 when 5870 was faster than all nvidia cards. Can Amd make a faster card than nvidia without people thinking it as ubnormal?

    This must be of the 6970 since the 6950 is only equipped for 225W, but the 6970 is equipped for 300W...


    ...massive overclocking headroom???
    Yeah it is said that it is very easy to clock up to 950 MHz (as shown in benchmarks). Probably it is gonna reach 1GHz on air and 1.1GHz watercooled.

    All the benchmarks you see are for the 190W TDP limited card, you can still adjust the card to 250W TDP (closer to the 580), what do you think it would do with the performance numbers?
    Sounds lovely <3

    didnt a 295 beat it tho? but again single vs dual dealie

    i think they (and nv) expected 495 when they thought this whole thing about 2 years ago, and it would be foolish to think that the current no x2 card from NV is the norm, and not the exception

    So, do we trust the "Neliz report" with a little salt? I figure if he burns us we can find him. There's always a way.
