Should level the playing field a bit. biggrin.gif

But when the 4gb card releases and they resolve the vram issue for higher resolutions.....DROOLS.... maybe someone will even get super finicky and make us a 384bit ram version?! wink.gif ok so it won't happen, but a guy can dream can't he?!

Likely $500-550, I've seen preorders (which are usually hiked) at $550 already.

I wouldn't mind you quoting my news post in your OP so it'd be easier for peeps to see the pics, or at least get a quick glance of all the benchies if you know what I'm saying laughingsmiley.gif

They also know how to skew every single review against NV if possible. But hey I guess most of the guys using these are going to be playing 3x1920x1080p right?

i own 3 and have no regrets. especially not knowing if that card was oced and other factors. (and how many months late to the game?) also we are aware of a driver coming to the 7970 for atleast a 10% increase in performance. not including what kind of monster the 7970 is oced.

my wife may enjoy the green team this go round. but im holding judement until the real reviews come. thumb.gif

Why bother include 1680x1050 for these cards. Also i can have any card i want. I have the HD 7970 because it was the fasted. Stop looking at other peoples rigs and assume. Keep your Nvidia Love to yourself.
