NP9130 SB/Fermi vs NP9130 IB/Kepler - Page 3

I would suggest waiting for the 8970m, considering the fact that the 6990m still has enough graphic processing power for current game titles.

True, however the 7970M overclocked will prove to be just as potent as both of those. Sidegrades aren't really such when one object proves to equal two of what you currently have. ;D

There's a difference between buying a product model that will be succeeded within a quarter and a product model that will be succeeded in about a year. I know someone who built a first-gen i7 computer the day before Sandy Bridge CPUs showed up on Newegg.

And plus, some electronics' prices don't go down enough to warrant its purchase.

This is what you must be referring too.

I'd hate to bump the thread, but it appears that I may be wrong:

Sweclockers has suggested that the next generation of AMD and Nvidia GPUs will be delayed all the way until Q4 2013. According to their source, the GPUs won't show up until as late as October 2013.

If that statement is true, then I take back my argument since it's going to be around a 6 months wait for the 8970m.

Plus the 8970m is most likely a refresh anyways.

AMD has been going through rebadging for the low end discrete GPUs and their mobile GPUs, and there's a 5470 thrown into the rebadging as well. I don't think the actual Sea Islands GPU architecture is going to be a refresh though.

To be completely honest, my thought process seems to have changed. The question at hand is, do I spend the $300 (after selling GTX670m + 120w AC) for a HD7970m + 180w AC? Or do I take the $300 + $750 (sale of NP9130) = $1000 (after PayPal fees) and go back to a desktop? It seems as though I barely use it as a laptop for a laptop, more or less a desktop. I tend to only use it in my "nook" area, where I could very easily wall mount a 24" monitor. To be frank, I have been looking at doing a ITX/MATX build to get back into the "tweaking" and the "tinkering" side of things.
