My dad hooked up a device to calculate the cost of running it and it came out to be a few dollars a month.
When dad pays the bills, this indeed isn't much....

Wow... way to be productive on your post there bud. No elaboration or anything. I wasn't even being THAT GUY like someone else said. I just said AMD needs to compete a little more rather than play it safe. I thought that was a widely known fact.

AMD is shooting themselves in the foot right now. They are pricing themselves to be virtually identical to the previous generation of cards in terms of performance, even though the 7xxx series of cards are clearly cheaper to produce. If they want to be greedy, so be it. Just make sure you guys speak with your wallets on this one. Eventually, they will budge on pricing if the cards aren't selling.

Looking at the benches I have been seeing going around its closer, if not equal to a GTX 580, not 570. And then even better with a nice OC.

How much was the GTX 570 at launch? rolleyes.gif

MSRP was around $350 for the GTX 570 at launch. The HD 7870 is too. AMD is being too passive with their pricing this time around.


Look, I didn't come here to start arguments. I made an observation. Take it at face value and move on.

I kinda remember 6850 being around $200 when released and so I gave it no thought as I was in the market for a $150 card. At that time then, I remember the 5770's were the best to get at $150. But when I was finally able to purchase a card in January, I found my 6850 on sale + MIR that brought it down to $150.

When HD 6850 came out they where ~ $180.

And if AMD priced these cards the same as 6000 series, what would 1. AMD do with all the old cards - just give them away? 2. What would Nvidia do? $250 580 1.5GB, $300 580 3GB? And then there's the issue of fitting the 570 at the $220 mark, 560 Ti at the $165 mark... you guys, come on now. 4000 series released with the 4870 at $300, 5000 series with 5870 at $400. Both ended up below $200. AMD has a lead, blame Nvidia for the higher pricing.

And it's not like anyone would pay $450 for a GTX 580 when you can get a 7950 for the same price that's maybe 15-20% faster factoring in max OC vs max OC.. and it comes with more VRAM. And then you have the 7870 at $350 that almost certainly ties, if not beats a 580 at max OC vs max OC. Go Nvidia if you think AMD's pricing is bad thumb.gif

I kinda remember that. 1 moment I was like "I might consider it", then "oh gosh, too far above my budget", then "holy smokes I can get a new one!"

In terms of price, it seems you dont get that much more performance than the GTX 500 series. Hopefully when Nvidia's cards come out the prices will be adjusted more competitively.
