Wait Karlitos you use IE to browse the web... well I guess I like that more than Chrome but why not Firefox if I may ask?

lol, I just went from Quad Titans to a 5870 at 1440p, so I'm itching for AMD to release something myself. Preferably something in between a 780 and Titan for the same price as a 780 or a little less would be a respectable request given the state of current events in the GPU world.

What's funny is, I beat Metro Last Light, Tomb Raider, Crysis 3, and a few other of the most demanding titles, and now even my 5870 is enough to run Starcraft II HOTS and even BF3 @ 1440p on high with FXAA and be playable. I even did some research on doing a volt mod on the card because its water cooled, to no avail because of the crap Gigabyte 5870 Windforces they put out back in the day. I remember I had the SOC version with the flames on it and it would OC to 1075+ and made me regret upgrading to a GTX 580 at the time because of how little I gained, but this regular 5870 OC model only OCs to around 950-965 stable in gaming, but I'll take whatever I can get on that core. The only thing that sucks is the VRAM, but when you aren't running MSAA, you'd be surprised what you can do with 1GB of VRAM.

I will say this. Even with the latest Nvidia drivers and my 2 golden 680s that both clock to nearly 1300mhz, due to SLI scaling and GPU usage or throttling, my best Titan was only a few frames behind the 2 680s in BF3 and Tomb Raider and the like.

However I did use a 680 for Physx with Metro Last Light at 1440p and wow it helped alot. It added over 10 fps in the benchmark at 1440p.



After all my rambling I forgot what I was even trying to say. Basically that there are no titles beyond the ones I've already beaten on the horizon that call for anything more than a 680 at 1440p, and at the most a 780 if you want smoother frames with perhaps an OC. Its quite sad that so many games hit consoles, but the PC gaming realm is rather stagnant at times and we're forced to rely upon replay ability and multiplayer in games rather than a vast swathe of single player titles to enjoy.

Some of us consumers - actually waiting for the 384 bit $550 flagship we're expecting and I won't budge until I see one.

AMD I want Crossfire 9970's (whatever is next) for $1100 and 30% more performance than my GTX 690.....got cash in hand and I'm not giving into Nvidia this year or my goal. If it's not possible - I'm waiting to 20nm architecture and will put it in stocks until I do get what I want. Make some free money waiting I guess. biggrin.gif

AMD stock?

Maybe not a bad choice depending on how Temash works out and how the next gen consoles sell.

So far everything indicated that next top of the line will be slightly slower then 780 ... probably cheaper as well.

I hope the high end 8970 has 6GB of Vram

Found this at guru3d:
An alleged picture and specifications of AMD’s upcoming flagship Radeon HD 8970 graphics card have been leaked by 4Chan. Not the best place for rumors it might be so do take this report with a grain of salt. AMD’s Radeon HD 8000 series could possibly be showcased at E3 2013 as revealed earlier.

RICFBdQ.jpg

NOTE: This news is a rumor and should be taken with a grain of salt. Although the picture shows no traces of photoshop but it could be a fake and not related to AMD’s upcoming announcements or the hd 8970 at all.

In addition to the picture, the site has also leaked alleged specifications of the Radeon HD 8970 GPU. According to them, the GPU is powered by the 28nm Curacao XT core which features 2304 stream processors, 48 Raster operators and a 3 GB GDDR5 memory running along a 384-bit wide interface. The core operates at 1000 MHz or 1 GHz clock speed while the memory is configured at 6500 MHz or 6.5 GHz effective frequency. The TDP of the card is a bit higher than the Radeon HD 7970 at 250W compared to 210W. This could be due to the addition of much higher number of transistors and stream processors in the latest flagship Radeon HD 8970 core. The card is rumored to be priced at $550 which is $100 under the NVIDIA’s flagship GeForce GTX 780 core. So whether or not it could defeat the green team’s flagship GPU is only a question that would settled when the card is launched.

The picture itself is quiet surprising, the card may look shorter than its predecessor HD 7970 but infact is around the same length and has a design scheme similar to the Radeon HD 7990. The side pattern and the fans are the same ones used on the Radeon HD 7990 so it could be a cut down version of the cooler we saw on AMD’s dual chip mammoth. AMD was recently talking about featuring better coolers on their next-generation cards and you may remember how they showcased in the HD 7990 slides that it delivers amazing performance without breaking the sound barrier? This might be it, AMD preparing reference solutions that are quiet yet deliver superior cooling performance compared to blower fans. There are two CrossFireX goldfingers which allow upto 4 Way GPU compatibility and power is provided through an 8 Pin + 6 Pin connector scheme. If the picture is true and the cards are indeed coming out on E3, then we guess we should wait some more for official details to pop out

The 780s look fantastic and I envy ( a very little bit) those who own 780s. I have the cash to go pick up a couple but I don't see that choice as a good investment at all. I have yet to find a game worth 1400 dollars worth of GPU.

I've only bought 2 new GPUs in my life, a 5870 and a 570 and for the money they were both fantastic.

I'm on my 3rd pint in the oldest bar in Toro to and the Jays are tied 3 each with Texas in the 18th... Cheers All!

It is part of it. Some people have a hard time with their logics! thumb.gif
