My main issue is, do I go with a crappy reference 680 or do I get a 7970 Lightning which is available now. I'm sure it'll be at least a couple of months before MSI releases a 680 Lightning....

Hmm, well... I don't know if it will really be all that long for non-reference cards. As EK seem to already be ready to release a Waterblock for the 680 not long after launch as they've already got a "6x0 Series" category setup in their shop, nothing in it yet ofcourse but still... I think it means we can expect things sooner this time 'round.

I'm thinking of TRI SLI with Nvidia Surround, i'm curious if the 256Bit interface will hold up well in high vram enviroments. Hmm...

I don't share everyone's skepticism of multi-monitor setups... the 256-bit bus has the same bandwidth as the 384-bit of a 580. That will have to account for something. If they managed to do that much, I'm sure they've done other things to make sure it would be able to handle it. Otherwise nVidia would have stuck with not supporting 4 monitors on the 680 out of the box.

So about 80% faster than a GTX580?

Classy.

I dunno. AMD opened up the card-makers to non-reference designs from the get-go with the 7970's and MSI is just now getting around to releasing its Lightning version nearly 3 months later. I'd guess it will be at least May-June before we see a 680 Lightning... sadsmiley.gif

I'm very impressed with gaming performance per watt and per dollar in this segment and am seriously considering grabbing a 680. However, I'm also worried about OpenCL performance, which some of the apps I use are very dependent on.

When does the actual NDA go down again?

Some words are better at conveying some meanings than others, if they weren't they wouldn't ever have been deemed swearing, curses, or profane.

Strictly speaking, there is no "need" for most of the words in even a simpleton's vocabulary. Most concepts can be conveyed with combinations of only several hundred, to perhaps a few thousand words. So why have more?

Personally, I embrace the versatility of my language when it serves my meaning, and were I am able. It's more efficient, less clunky, and often of superior accuracy, especially when trying to communicate subtle distinctions in a medium that would otherwise require excessive enunciation.

Everything offends someone, probably a lot of someones, and the idea that either politeness, or common sense, are served by running the euphemism treadmill or using less precise terminology is a farce. People just like to project their own taboos.

Prices on 7970 will drop for sure, it was to be expected, they had a good 2-3 months selling at 550$.It depends on the 680's price, but it seems to be at around 500$ also. To bad prices here are already 30-40% higher than in the US, not taking into acount the general income which is waaay lower, so they are pretty expensive, the equivalent of 600$ for the cheapest GTX580 checked out right now. I am considering one , but the curent one does the job pretty well , am not playing much (Diablo 3 when it comes out). I might wait for the next gen, dpends on the prices..

Btw, what is the medium interval between generations, 1 - 1and1/2 years ? Say between gtx580 and gtx680, or 6970 and 7970 ?

Well, at least AMD fans can be happy their card is 4c cooler at load!!!!!

THATS ITS ONLY VICTORY

FORZA NVIDIA

Very nice, I'm pleasantly surprised. Glad I didn't pick up the HD7970s.

Now all we are missing are the typical OCN AMD apologists ready to invent reasons why the Radeons are superior in every single way.
