I concur, that's what I have read too based from their current tight supply. Until then, AMD is using this as leverage.

What needs to happen (if any price drop is to happen at all) is for the 580 to drop to $375, THEN drop the 7970 to like $400, forcing the 670, 680, and 7950 prices down. This is not only AMD. If anyone is to complain and moan about AMD's prices (you know, since they're actually better all-around cards then nVidia this gen) they need to complain and moan about nVidia's prices too. Did everyone forget the $1000 card already? sheesh.
TL;DR: get the 670, or wait for GHz edition cards from AMD so they can tie in gaming and still kick ass in compute.

Why does everyone bring up the "Compute" performance when defending the 7970? Does it help in some way when you play games? Right now no one in there right mind should touch the 79xx series at its current pricing. The 670 is the current bang for your buck. Buying a 7970 over it is just plain foolish

So.... I shouldn't get compute performance for texture conversion. I shouldn't get compute performance for video encoding. I shouldn't get compute performance for rendering. No one uses PhysX, and no web browsers or any other programs use GPGPU

Sorry kid, Compute power on the gpu is the future, just look at Trinity and it's OpenCL support. Considering the 7970 offers about the same game performance as a 680, is cheaper, and has real GPGPU capability... Ya, I think in comparison to the 580 and the almost useless (in comparison) 670, it's priced fine. All the prices need to go down, not just AMD's.

Perhaps this will help you understand why compute preformance is brought up when defending AMD:

AMD and nVidia both make a 450HP truck with leather seats and everything. AMD gives its truck 4 wheel drive. Since you don't plan to take your truck off road, you are complaining that the truck with 4 wheel drive cost more? Go tell that to a car dealer, you'll get laughed at.

Nvidia fans will ignore compute just this one time and bring it up when big kepler GK110 comes up. biggrin.gif AMD is not going to give up margins when they have a really good gaming + compute chip. All they will do is up the clocks and give users better performance out of the box. Also when HD 7970 and GTX 680 are both OC'd HD 7970 is faster especially at 1600p and higher thumb.gif

That seems to be the way it works, ya... It's sad that when nVidia and AMD finally tie, their cards are so high priced though. One would hope that being as close as they are there would be a bloody price war going down. Maybe it will happen if/when nVidia ever gets 680's back in stock? Oh well, here's hoping.

Given capacity constraints at TSMC 28nm and a relatively new process I don't see a price war. Both companies wouldn't want to sacrifice margins. Maybe in mid Q3 when TSMC 28nm capacity improves prices on cards from both camps will go down. thumb.gif
