[Sweclockers] GeForce GTX 670 Ti - Coming March 11-31, Faster Than GTX 580 - Page 9  

post #81 of 200
Most of the nvidia cards are getting Freeze and BSOD at all time. Their driver has a problem. They must fix it before big sale on GTX 600 series.

609 + 7.56 shipping.

That's because AMD is milking the fact that they have the fastest card now. wink.gif

Here's a $600 one plus 2 others as well:

Couldn't AMD price the 7970 at $499, forcing the 580 to price drop? Nah, they'd rather milk the extra profits now. wink.gif

This ^^^^^

Amd and Nvidia are competing for the mid-low range.

When it comes to high end, you'd honestly think there was some collusion between the two that allow them to release high end cards for big profits one at a time. smile.gif

I wouldn't believe a word about Kepler until they're being sold and independent reviews are rolling in. All the rumors going from the 7970 is going to stomp the 780, to last weeks rumors that the $200 660 is going to stomp the 7970, to this weeks very believable 670 is going to be between the 7950 and 7970. It's just been way too much across the board for any prediction to be credible. 2cents.gif

Because, the 7970 is only 15-20% faster than a 1.5GB GTX 580, yet came out FOURTEEN MONTHS later, costing $100-150 more, on a full new process. It's just not a good price for its performance and release date.

oh i'm with you but I don't think nvidia is going to release a card that outperforms a 7970 and is cheaper. That's not their m.o.

Never had an issue from the 8800GTS 640 days onward wink.gif, and I've owned: 8800GTS, 8800GTX, 8800GT 512 SLI, 9600GSO, GTX 260, GTX 470 SLI, 570 SLI, 570 single. On the AMD side I've owned 9700 pro, X800 AIW, X1800GTO2, X1900XT, 4850, 4850 CF, 4870, 5870, and 7970: guess which ones had all the issues, and which ones had 5-minute fixes as the worst that ever happened? HINT: It's not the one with "nVidia" in their name! The ATI cards have consistently, but for the 9700 pro, given me issues ranging from minor graphical glitches being very common as well as worse Anisotropic Filtering quality, to outright BSOD's, crashes, and full-out incompatibilities. I keep giving them a chance and they keep falling flat on their face. nVidia's solutions on the other hand, the worst I've ever had to do is *GASP* add a quick number into a box in nVidia Inspector to get Crysis 2 to play nicely with SLI. Minor issues ranging from simply installing the driver over itself (a 5-minute fix) are about the other "worst" I've encountered, and this is exceedingly rare across any of the generations.

I have owned multiple of all of the listed cards in various systems, FYI. This isn't just MY experience, either: I have browsed web-based forums regularly since the first 3d accelerators came out, and it's a very noticeable trend over the years. Additionally, I know NO ONE in real life who has not had major issues with the AMD cards they've picked up, while still having any issues when they moved to nVidia. I am not a fanboy of either side, but when you keep getting burnt by one, a preference certainly forms for the other.

They need to leave room for their higher-end products in the market. AMD overpriced the 7950/7970, and it's going to show soon enough. They should have been $300-350 cards like the 5850/5870.

I agree on that one, if this is truly faster than the 4940, it'll be at least $499, or most likely, similar prices we are seeing now with the 7970.

Both companies milk it when they have the performance crown.

Remember the 8800 Ultra? There is still room for high end. It won't shock me to see the dual GPU cards going for 1200 dollars or more.
