I was hoping they would come in and put the 7970 a bit above the 6970 as to make a stand and say this is the next gen. However, they came in and priced the 7970 relative to the 580's performance (which the 580 was already an expensive card when it was launched.)
The 7870 and the 7850 are pretty much pointless because they perform on par with the 6970 and 6950 respectively, but cost the same if not more...
Hopefully, nvidia sets the pricing back to normal. I really don't want to pay 299 for a 7870 that performs like a 6970. wink.gif

that is a very good point indeed, and it is the obvious business solution because the competition isnt here yet. who would want to compete with themselves afterall?
not to mention amd wasnt making enough money out of graphics despite the good sales, this is why amd has focused on designing chips with smaller die sizes and higher clocks to compete with nvidias big die sizes(which are problematic in the manufacturing side, and causes nvidia alot of headache almost every time)

if you have been keeping up with specs you will notice nvidias mid-high range 660 to be close to amds high end hd7970 in tdp and die size. and looking back at the hd6970 and their nvidia counterpart you will see the same thing happening, only difference last time amd couldnt price their chips like they intended, but they sure did this time which is exactly why they rushed as much as possible with the hd7000 series to have as much time as possible.

Does anyone see the 7970 competitor from nVidia being here by June?

Can you define what you mean by 580 equivalent. Do you mean the gpu tier or the performance equivalent of a 580? It sounds like you want the tier... And rumors in the wind say late this year. Pure rumor from spending way too much time Googling looking for dates myself. You will probably be better off with a 7970 instead of waiting.

That's correct. Rumors point towards Q3 2012 being release date for GK110 or the 580-equivalent.

My understanding, (from what I read yesterday), is at the end of this month the 600 series will be released. I believe the 680 will be out at that time. $$$ in bank, waiting on kepler and Ivy.

Though the official launch of the GeForce GTX 680 is rumored to be scheduled for March 23, it is said that the Santa Clara, California-based company will speak of the board a bit sooner.

According to VR-Zone, NVIDIA will reveal some details, in official capacity, on March 12 this year (2012).

That is less than a week from now, so this calls for a tally of what is known about the product so far.

There will be 1,536 stream processors in the GK104 graphics processing unit, though NVIDIA calls them CUDA cores.

Speaking of which, the shader hotclock will be in effect: the SPs will run faster than the GPU, despite what rumors have been saying.

To elaborate, the graphics chip will operate at 706 MHz and the CUDA cores at 1,411 MHz.

The memory controller will exhibit some improvements as well, actually pushing the VRAM to a 6 GHz performance.

As such, the memory bandwidth will be of 192 GB/s, the same as the one on the GTX 580, despite the memory bus being narrower.

NVIDIA previously said that the Kepler would be unbeatable when it finally arrives, and what we have seen so far shows that it is at least possible to live up to that boast.

Moving on, the high-end video controller possesses two SLI connectors, leading to 3-way SLI multi-GPU support. The weird power plugs may interfere with this capability though.

Finally, there are two DVI video outputs available, plus an HDMI and a DisplayPort. Not exactly the same multi-display support as AMD's Eyefinity, but 4 monitors is still a large number.

We continue to hope that the experimental, stacked PCI Express power connectors don't make it into the final incarnation of the Kepler. Perhaps NVIDIA will say something about this at the upcoming event. If not, we'll just have to wait and see.
