I guess this is the generation I've been waiting for. With a 512-bit bus, It'll probably have 4GB VRAM stock, which is the perfect amount for surround gaming, especially when paired with that buswidth. Heck, maybe Sapphire will make a Toxic version with 8GB VRAM for bragging rights.

Just imagine the performance numbers of a 9990 (9999?). My goodness.

Hopefully, AMD can gain some market share with this generation of cards. It's been split 60/40 for a long time now. If they price the 9970 at around $500, have very good frametimes, and actually has those specs, oooh man. They're going to give Maxwell a run for their money. I wouldn't be surprised if some Titans show up in the OCN Marketplace. I just REALLY hope that AMD doesn't pump the price up. The pricing will be the key to whether they'll be successful this coming generation or not. This is my prediction for AMD's cards:

9970->2x + performance of 7970 $500
9950-> 2x + performance of 7950 $400
9870-> die shrunk 7970 $300
9850-> die shrunk 7950 $20
0

Gives me nerdgasm just thinking about that.

Kinda like how amd milked their customers with the 6970/6950 compared to the 5870/5850. Both brands do it

I believe that it will be around $550-$650 at mot. Remember Titan was not in the normal GTX series, and more or less a special circumstance. The 780 should be out before this card, so i don't think they would go crazy with the price. If they did it could be the nail in the coffin for them. I myself hope these rumors are true. I have almost always bought nvidia cards til this past gen. Here's hoping AMD can get these cards out this year!!thumb.gif
