When you have TDP to confine to on a fresh process, yes it is that way. They could make slaughter houses and go nVidia route and screw TDP. Either way, there's always something limiting these companies whether it's money, process, future readiness, sales NOW, etc...

lol, k? k.

Does anyone think the prices will drop by a pretty decent amount when kepler comes out? Or, do you think that it will just drop by like 20$... Cause i was really shooting for the 300$ mark for a 7870 Reference and like 320-330$ for a non reference card. But it looks like its going to be 350$ for a reference? DANG mad.gif

I have been buying used graphics cards my whole life... i really want a new one, i love the boxes! lol, but TBH i really would like to try AMD out only gone green from 6600gt and up. I want a card that i can overclock the crap out of on air! but if its going to cost like 380$ for a none reference card thats going to suck!!

I doubt it'll be substantial unless Keplar wipes the floor with AMD's cards. But there was a previous article from Sweclockers that claimed the GTX670 would outperform a GTX580 and 7950 (but not a 7970 - I'm extrapolating), meaning the adjacent cards probably won't outperform their AMD counterparts by a substantial amount either.

So my guess is we'll see something like $30. Right now AMD has a few advantages. They can claim they have the fastest cards out on the market right now and they can also claim they have the newest products in the market. Plus they don't have any competition from Nvidia's concurrent (or rather, upcoming) generation: 6xx series.

Ya.. thanks for the info. I think that i am just going to wait and see. I have about 350$ to spend on a new card, and i want to make sure i get the best "bang for my buck". So i am just going to see how it all plays out here in the next month. I am getting a very itchy finger though with my 5770 lol
