-$10 discount code ($10 off AT-7850_2G w/code: CHERY3610, ends 04/01)
-$15 MIR (https://www.superbiiz.com/images/rebate/Sapphire-MIR-2013-0216_0331-extension-Video%20Card-ALT-5501%20Channel.PDF)

Besides HD 7850s have been going for $170-180 for months, with the 1GB version typically $140-150 on sale.
see above. Also when the HD7870XT was actually in stock it was a better deal than all of these cards (now it is back to $230 with the game bundle).

Too bad it's not in stock, and it's $250 BEFORE Rebate.

Have you not noticed that this is a 650TI Reviews thread?

Nobody cares about your precious, legendary, amazing overclocking 7850, or others like it.

You should be happy NVIDIA released this card, because it's driven AMD prices down.

Go get yourself another 7850.

For the record, I have nothing against Fermi, just Kepler. When the only thing it's good at is games (vs other cards at stock speed or factory OC) and can't compete with a 1 year old card, it's not that amazing. If this was 2012 then maybe it'd be worth it vs other cards for gaming.

On the contrary AMD prices went up because HD7870Xt sold out, HD7850 was ~$190 last week or two before rebate discount.

HD7850 is ending b/c of memory supplier shortage.

There is nothing different with compute on Fermi and compute on kepler.

GF104 was just about as useless with compute as GK104 is.

At least Nvidia didn't charge a grand for you to get decent compute. Titan : 1/3 SPFP = DPFP.

edit: GF104 is midrange GTX 460 stuff. GK104 = GTX 680, GTX 670, GTX 660Ti.

You only have AMD to blame for that though.

With Fermi AMD's chips were good enough to force NV to use GF100/GF110 in their $500-$300 cards. Not the case this round.

ok my bad on the code but rebates aside its still $25 dollars more to get the card - rebates may not happen.

games as a source of revenue to compensate for upfront cost? lets make the playing field equal and account for the $75 in FTP gaming with the 650ti you conveniently leave out.

or, since my time is worth money and if i use what i get paid at my job as the standard then the time i spent selling the game will end up being a wash if not a net loss.

Always can count on Alatar to swing the bat for Nvidia. rolleyes.gif This statement is total rubbish and you know it. I'd argue that the 7970 is far more powerful a flagship for AMD this generation than the 6970 ever was. Even now my own personal testing shows the 7970 hanging pretty tough with Titan and having a clear advantage over the 680. You have no earthly clue why Nvidia chose to mothball GK100 so I have no idea why you think they could have just released it as the 680? They probably wanted to avoid the catastrophe that was the GTX 480. Nothing AMD did stopped Nvidia from putting out their large die powerhouse; Nvidia themselves just decided that the small, efficient die strategy was more profitable (something AMD has known for years).

Don't forget I have owned and tested BOTH setups extensively and harbor no biases one way or the other. I get sick of seeing the same people posting the same misinformation over and over again out of brand loyalty. Its especially disturbing from supposedly impartial moderators. Face it, Tahiti was and still is a great GPU and even now with the mighty GK110 having released, it is far from irrelevant...

If it's so great, why were you so eager to switch away from it?

Regardless of the reasons of why NVIDIA did what they did, fact remains that GK104 a midrange chip, was used to compete with AMD's highend offerings.
