SLI your 580 all you want, i'm gonna get me a brand new 7970 this february matey! And i might name my rig "SLI 580 killer" after then tongue.gif

That's high expectations or deluded. The 7970 most likely won't be better than about 15-20% performance than a 6970. It's the power consumption that will be 50% less than required now to run.

I guess I don't see how one 7970 could possibly beat two 6970/580's. headscratch.gif I have a feeling, at best, one 7970 is going to be on par with a 580.

Next gen 28nm fabrication cards 'big deal' is power consumption not performance increase on a smaller shrink die. Less power required to run per watt.

I digress....back to topic. rolleyes.gif I guess you could have called your rig 'AMD 6970 Killer' as well. Where the love bro? smile.gif
