I'm being patient...I've been patient Nvidia. Ever since I heard about the latest GPU's going 28nm I've been watching with great interest. AMD delivered admirably by not only getting their cards out on time, but providing plenty of specs and benchmarks leading up to its release.

Many people are like, "Nvidia being quiet is a good thing, remember the 500 series?" to which I'm gonna call BS. The 500 series was a refresh. The design was already there, it just needed some tweaking because the original Fermi boards were...not up to par in terms of power and heat. Right now, we're talking about a whole new generation of chips, in an all new size, on a brand new architecture (they even dropped their famous "hotclocks" supposedly) where they are literally months behind in bringing an answer to their competitor's latest product. They claim to be calm about it because they supposedly have a vastly superior chip, but if that's the case, then why not try to stall sales of your competitor's flagship by throwing out specs, in-house benchmarks...something!

Now my speculation should be marked as pure opinion, but I think Nvidia knows they're in a bit over their head right now. First off, the 7970 ended up being a fantastic overclocker, which not many people saw coming, and which really increases the value of Tahiti if you're up for a bit of tweaking. I think Nvidia saw what the 7970/7950 was capable of, and realized that their product wasn't going to absolutely crush it. So, they've been quiet about it, dragging along those who are on the fence or waiting to upgrade so they won't just grab a 7970/7950. In reality, their new chip isn't enough of a showstopper to make the wait worth it. Probably superior, yes, but not by enough to make the gap between the release of the 7970 and the 680 insignificant.

Again, this is all speculation, but I think what they're hoping to do is keep everyone waiting until the 680 is released, so even though it's not a massive improvement, at that point it'll still be the fastest card and all the people who waited will buy it anyways because hey, it's the new card on the block and even if the wait was BS, might as well go for it.

If we're lucky though, this will cause AMD to slash prices so they can sit on their comfy value throne and we'll see a vastly cheaper 7900 series.

Anyways, I'm just a bit upset because I actually wanna experience Nvidia again. My last card from them was in the 7000 series. After that, I got a Radeon 2900XT relatively cheap, and from there upgraded to the 4870's I still have. I'm due for an upgrade, and I would love to be pleasantly surprised by Kepler, but considering we're three months after the release of the 7970 and we still don't even know Kepler's specs...it's awfully difficult to have a positive outlook on Nvidia right now.

Ok, send me a PM when you want to make the benches.

I hope it helps with pricing. 79xx cards are overpriced (or at last not what I'd buy one for).

When's the last time Nvidia had higher performance/watt than AMD at any level? Since at least the 4000 series, AMD had the fastest card that didn't need a 6-pin. And the fastest card that only used a single 6-pin (550 Ti vs. 6850, we all know which is faster). Nvidia's performance/watt isn't *that* much worse to be fair, but it's a concern for people who have to work with small cases, smaller PSUs, etc.

Sure, it's great that Nvidia *will* have something faster than a 7970, but you could play this game non-stop. AMD will have a faster card before Nvidia gets out their Kepler refreshes.

not necessarily, AMD didn't get the 6900 out before Nvidia's 500 series hit the market. Actually iirc the 6900 was delayed a bit since AMD wasn't expecting a fermi refresh and they needed to adjust the clocks or something along those lines.

i think NVIDA was paid off to delay the cards

I fail to see how it's any more or less newsworthy than, say...AMD stock floating to $9...
