8900 series, what do you guys think?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
8990 is rumoured coming in Q2 2013. Do you think that is the case for 8970/50?

Last time AMD launched a dual GPU (6990) it was 3 months after the 6970/50 release. Paper launch was mid-december for the 69XXs & 6990 came out in march.

I recently learned removing the heat sink of my MSI 7970 voided the warranty (like seriously?), I will sell it for 300-320$. Not going to keep it anyway, overclock like crap and noisy as hell. With the 8000 series around the corner I think this is a wise move.
I suspect AMD is trying to get rid of his 7970/50 stock with the never settle down pack (3 games + 20% discount on a game). I grabbed the 7970 because of a clearance sale, a good sign that retailer are getting rid of current generation & bad sellers.

All-in-all, I bet we will get the new series in January with a possible paper launch earlier.
