Also, while 20nm does seem a bit unlikely, it does help the proverbial pieces fall into place, such as why the 8xxx series are pretty much all rebrands. Either way, I suspect that Volcanic Islands will have some major advancement, which is why they seem to have dedicated just about everything they have to it.
well sry but what shall prevent people wanting to spring top dollar buying near titan 780 for next 3 months? if amd says ok 20nm is coming people will wait, but if they dont, they loose sales. its as simple as that

i just saw a review where they made a raid of 2 120gb and got sequential write 950+MB, i guess that could be called overclocking SSD xD
anyway if nvidia has 250w card and amd 350w then all those trifire quadfire people will rather choose 384bit 780s cause we are talking about 300w more consumption and heat
and this is coming from lifelong ati person, who bought 660 only cause he already had FC3
