Debating at its finest I say.

In this industry, reactionary product changes happen at every corner, it is a must with the fast pace and changes you encounter. But this doesn't mean these companies to not have hard timelines for product releases.

It is entirely possible nvidia used a lower SKU as their top product once the 7970 was released, but it would of been very difficult to make that happen. It is more believable that we are way over analysing the situation and nvidia had most of this already implemented in their timeline. They most likely had the 680 and titan planned as their top theirs well before the 7970 was release, with their release dates waiting for amds releases. Having been on top the generation prior, it gives you this advantage.

I think both camps knew neither were planning a full gen release this winter, but nvidia had planned ahead with a "just in case" plan, the titan. They were in the position to release such a product after the hub dub(what were talking about right noe) with the 680, especially after amd came out about not having 8xxx series until q4. This just enabled them to sell it as a "enthusiast" product with a price to match.

This is a reactionary industry but you can't have products to react with without well planned timelines made years in advance.

Zotac ZT-61201-10M (993/1059) $170
EVGA 02G-P4-3657-KR (980/1033) $170
Gigabyte GV-N65TBOC-2GD (1032/1098) $170
Galaxy 65NPH7DN7WGU (980/1033) $175
EVGA 02G-P4-3658-KR (1072/1137) $180
MSI N650TiTF2GD5/OC BE (1033/1098) $180

The MSI "Twin Frozr", Gigabyte "WindForce", and EVGA "Superclocked" models all look pretty good.

EDIT: Looks like the AMD 7790 models have just hit Newegg. There's 7 models in all, but the only 2GB version is the pre-overclocked (1075MHz vs. 1000 reference) Gigabyte GV-R779OC-2GD, which is $170.

Given the rather large performance difference between the 7790 and the 650 Ti-B, I'm not sure who's going to buy the 7790 however. Any AMD-minded person would likely get a 7850.

Yay on topic! smile.gif

I think the last link goes to EVGA card and second t last goes to an MSI card? confused.gif

I think the HD 7790 is very overpriced and GTX 650 Ti Boost is priced at ~$175 shipped only because it's overhyped & new.... you can get a GTX 660 for $180 or so (and at times during 2012 $170 for the ZOTAC one).

Whoops, I guess I got those last 2 links out of order, fixed it.

AMD definitely miscalculated on their 7790 pricing, no doubt about it. Of course it's easy for us to say that after the fact...

As for the price of the 650 Ti Boost being $175 shipped, paying the full $169 MSRP for the reference-clocked 2GB model is to be expected upon launch. The bigger story is that the 660's MSRP dropped to $199 while still keeping some of the pre-drop MIR offers...

As a side note. I would never get a GTX 650 Ti Boost over GTX 660 when the difference is $10 simply because it will be a pain to resell when you upgrade. (Given that it only OCs 10%, you will upgrade sooner.)

That same logic also applies to getting a 660 over a 7850, right? smile.gif

I'm assuming that it would be a pain to resell in 2014/15 mostly because there will be far fewer 650 Ti-B owners than 660 owners overall in existence before the 7xx series launches.

As such, it would be harder to find someone looking to add a 2nd card for an inexpensive performance boost via SLI, correct?

Actually was thinking because of model number confusion

People that aren't that computer saavy think the HD7870XT is a aftermarket HD7870 ; The GTX 650 Ti Boost might be a bit like GTX 650 Ti Power edition / Superclocked to those not in the know.
