even if its 5% faster than HD7000...who knows may be AMD drop some price on HD7970 so its a WIN and no one will be regretting their purchase later
This is pretty much what happened with Fermi. The 480 was quicker than the 5870 but not by a whole lot, and it came much much later. And then there were the other issues with the cards
I just find it really hard to believe nvidia would let the same situation happen again. They're smart enough to learn from the past, I don't think they'll release Kepler until it's legitimately good. If that means delaying it so be it. I hope thats how they see it anyway, would really suck for them to release something that wasnt ready just because they felt they needed to get something out there asap.
They may end up being 5 months or more behind, you gotta make sure that the wait is worth it.
