I don't care if these cards are :insert number: months late to the party, but performance dictates pricing, and if any of these Kepler cards slated to launch March 12th surpasses the HD 7970 performance wise at ~$500, that's a win in my book.

500 dollars for a card that barely surpasses a 7970 is very disappointing. 
 

 


Actually since its a big win if it's even the same price. The 580 with 20% greater performance was $100 more than the 6790 when they released. So if the 680 comes in at the same price it's a big win for us Nvidia fans used to paying the premium.

AMD wouldnt have the price / performance edge and I can't see them coming down in thier current cards by $100! So even if they cut a bit more, with slightly less perfomance (if specs rumored are accurate) it would only level the playing field rather than give AMD the price / perfomance edge they've always had.

Sort of a win for consumers having the choice between either companies rather than being forced what was less expensive. Nvidia has removed the 'premium' price tag which is also a win in my book albeit little.

I'm not an "NVIDIA fan" by any means, I'm just saying that if one of the GK104 chips ends up being faster than the HD 7970 at ~$60 less, that's a win.

If it was the other way around, I'd be saying the same thing for AMD.

EDIT: On another note, I really hope the lower end GK104 debuts @ $350 as some are saying lol.

All i can say is that Nvidia will not pull a HD 4870 stunt.

The 7970 price was inflated because of lack of supply. I'm almost certain that the launch price will be higher than MSRP as well (meaning the 500 dollar cost will be driven up). And your logic doesn't make sense to me; a few FPS increase will warrants 2 months of additional waiting? It is definitely possible that after overclocking is taken account, the 7970 will be faster.

 

Also 3GB>2GB of VRAM.

Even if the 680s are technically faster, it seems to me like multi-monitor users may be better off with the 7970. Until the 4GB Kepler cards come out, anyway.

And the fact the memory Bandwidth of HD 79XX is much higher.

For the sake of my wallet i hope so. I want to go back to a single card.

MSRP for the HD 7970 = $550, so only a $10 increase in most cases, it's not like the lack of supply has been driving prices significantly higher than the MSRP.

And yes, an additional 2 months of waiting will be worth it, in my case, if this card ends up being faster than the HD 7970 for ~$50 less or so. I've been waiting for these cards a whole lot of time (for both AMD's 7000s series and NVIDIA's 600s), so what's waiting 2 more months if the results are: a cheaper yet faster card vs the HD 7970.

How are you even certain that it is faster? 7970 are beasts at overclocking, the 680s may not be.

The 680 will end up faster, but only by a noticeable margin in games where Nvidia has tweaked performance to suit their cards/drivers. If it comes out costing less then the 7970, then it will perform less, plain and simple.
